I stand corrected on the sig and Animal House.
Maybe you aren't fat.
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
More fails than I need to count.
Love the right foot placement.
Clear line of sight... all good
I can hear him now
"Fuck that, turning is dangerous I'm just gonna go straight though these curves."
I thought his name was Flounder.
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
Against the law, yet somehow they are all over the place. Crime scene, autopsy, you name it.
I'll take "Unenforceable Laws" for $300, Alex!
Are you related to a guy named Bob Mielke by any chance?
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!!!!!!
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.
Most likely sexted by the daughter herself.
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. I had to take my own photos.
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.
GTFS Nikki Catsouras.
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.
yes it is. much, much worse.
Nah, it's just that nowadays you know about a whole lot more of the bad shit.
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.
Interesting. Crime statistics and poverty rates (US and worldwide) don't jive with that. How would you quantify?
I had a track day get-off, and my first question was "did anyone get pics?!"
Accident reconstruction is a great help when you want to avoid repeating a mistake in the future.
