    You know what they say "Everyone's dumber in Texas" and "Texans are so dumb they could be their own country"
    or something along those lines...

    "forced to lay his motorcycle down" - count: 2

    Only 2 HD at the rally? :wink:



    On a serious note: so many people with potentially serious injuries (if not properly and timely treated) refusing transport. Has an unhealthy sound.

    Our VFD responded to a moto down on IH10 just outside of my hometown. The guy was returning to Houston from Austin and entered IH10 from the 71 bypass. Traffic slowed, but he didn't notice soon enough.

    Looks like he locked it up and jack-knifed his trailer. He was medivac'ed to Houston. No gear so he had a head injury and plenty of road rash. The medics damn near had heat stroke packaging the patient for flight.

    Not a good experience...

    Friday a mid 40's guy following his fiance missed the curve and hit a fence just north of Llano. Died at the scene. I'd add this to the list.

    Mr. Potato State. If we are so dumb, why are we the fastest growing state in the union? Besides who cares about a state known for potatoes. NO ONE.

    Texas means: Fierce State Pride Individualism Strength Strong work ethic
    Wide open spaces Incredible Diversity Etc.etc.etc...

    DO not judge all of Texas by the idiots who attend the ROT. Most of them are from California(Escapees).

    Failed the entrance exam = Hater.

    He can't help it. Some folks just can't cotrol themselves and refuse to stay on their meds.

    P.S. I wish all the left coasters and yanks would go back where they came from and stop messing up our good thing.
