    Let me just say that the ONE time I was almost killed riding happened JUST LIKE THIS. It was on my son's 80cc mini bike, on the street in front of our house. All it took was a quick test ride, a seized engine, an out of control skid, a flip over on its side and a subdural hemotoma to almost kill me. I received 4 days in intensive care, 9 days hospitalized, another week in bed at home and permanent memory loss. I don't even walk out to the garage to look at my bikes without ATGATT now. You can't be too careful. This is No Gear At All (NGAA). Ouch.

    Sorry 'bout your luck man, memory loss is no joke.

    I remember looking into the garage at my helmet setting on the trailer and thinking, I don't need a helmet for this, just before heading down the driveway. Who'd have thought you could get killed playing on a mini bike in front of your house.

    My wife gets credit for saving my life by making (and I mean making) the ER Doctor run a CT Scan on me. They were going to load me in the car and send me home where I probably would have died from brain swelling. I wish I could remember the shock on their faces when they found the bleeding in my brain.

    I just cringe when I see people on any kind of bike without ATGATT. Cool scooter.
