That the first thing they though of was to lay in the road and get pics is fucking hilarious.
Yeah, a blow out which was the result of losing both front wheels to hitting a sink hole at speed!

Meathead coming off the dock at No Clever Name 2010. He already may have been in third gear by this point.

Yep. You kinda know that you have a 'keeper' when she wants/insists on knee pucks for her too. Such riders are no longer passengers or pillions to me. I think of them as co-riders and full participants in the whole of the experience at all times. If you think that this is something, may you be blessed with one that will stand on the pegs and do it 2up-dirty with you. I have yet to find one who will swap positions.
