    We get it...you can't stand to see people hurt. My take is that all those shots were taken within seconds of each other. No way did they cause the accident or delay any response. They reflect a reality that you find uncomfortable. You remind me of my mother who, up until the day she died, was fairly certain that there were no gay people in Germany where and when she grew up...

    Now can we get back to arguing about darksiders? Here's a 205 to misdirect this useless debate...

    I'd have 7 years worth as of now if I hadn't ended up in the hospital. My sig refers to this:

    I stand corrected on the sig and Animal House.

    Wow. Just when I think I understand something here logic and reason and decency creeps in. I really struggle with all that and then have to remind myself what thread I am in and then sigh with relief. I still will slip up and offer some reasonable insights from time to time. Asking forgiveness in advance for those slip ups

    Get a grip. Half the guys riding the Dragon are fully aware of the photogs. After the ride they're huddled around the nearest wifi laptop checking to see if Killboy has posted their pics yet.

    My riding buddy couldn't work a frikkin' camera and 20 years later, I'm still pissed about the pics he missed when I was crashing.

    If I'm still breathing, you better be takin' pics; they're going to last a lot longer than my pain.

    I was pissed my camera was off when I lowsided at ~50mph. Log rolled instead of sliding, would have made some interesting footing :D

    Against the law, yet somehow they are all over the place. Crime scene, autopsy, you name it. :dunno

    I'll take "Unenforceable Laws" for $300, Alex!

    Are you related to a guy named Bob Mielke by any chance? :lol3

    You think plenty of dads haven't ran across photos of their daughters in compromising positions?

    Welcome to the internet.

    So I'm at a go-kart track in Marshalltown, IA helping my buddy out.

    I'm taking pics for him while he's out thrashing his YSR.

    Last race of the day, and he's out front!!!!!! :clap

    Runs wide coming out of the corner, but keeps it up. Only now his tires have mud on them. And he goes down. In the front of the pack. :eek1

    Horrified, I watch as he gets run over.

    He is in the hospital for awhile with a broken sacrum and a big gash in his shoulder.

    When he comes to, first thing he asks is if I got any pics of him going down. I said, "Hell no!"

    He proceeded to chew me out pretty good. :lol3

    Either of us? :huh You're gonna need to dial back the meds for a minute. How many fingers am I holding up?

    I wish there was someone to snap photos of my accident, I really wish there was this play by play blow by blow that's represented in this harley head on wreck. Sadly, I had to "lay her down" out in the boonies miles away from any corner photogs. :dunno I had to take my own photos. :deal

    I have no interest in looking at someone's dead gore spread across the road, but these folks came out and posted the photos of their own wreck. Can you believe the entertainment they're getting out of their own pain and suffering?

    How could the photog have shown respect to their pain and suffering? Shut the camera off half a second sooner? The main reason these folks are on the Dragon in the first place is because of how popular it is, due in large part to the photographers set up on the road. You head to the "Dragon" chances are you know what you're getting into. Photographers, Lane Crossers, Semi's and all.

    And no, the world isn't getting worse, even if people think it is.

    Completely agree. That's why I often wear a helmetcam and have it on more than I'm willing to edit.

    Not really. Overall health is higher, standards of living are better, Median life expectancy is higher then ever, Education is better.

    What it is, is that we are more connected then ever too. So all that horrific stuff that's happening, you know about it immediately. Instead of news from your local area only, everywhere gets an equal say.
