Nothing I said was race related doug s., so what is up with you bringing race up? In case you haven't noticed, the fashon trend of hoodlums wearing doo rags is not race specific and when I think back on the alley running dirtbikers that I have seen, that is what I remember, doo rag, specifically not a helmet - that is why I remember it. There are plenty of bike theives of all colors/flavors. Wasn't there a white guy a few pages back on this thread that almost stole a bike?

I now ask why assuming that an unplated dirtbike is stolen is in any way connected to race? That is kind of like saying "you like carpet over hardwood floors, you must be a racist." They just aren't connected.
sorry; since the "stolen bike" comment was completely unrelated to the topic at hand, and since dc is 90% black, it yust sounded like a racist comment to me...

I'm not sure how this got off topic, but in 2011 DC was about 50% black/AA and 42% white (http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/11000.html). I do not think this has anything to do with the who is stealing bikes and riding without helmets.

wow - gentrification taking place, and i didn't even realize it. my bad! when i was a kid, dc was about 75% black... agreed it's unrelated to who's riding w/o helmets, and if the bikes are stolen or not, regardless of who's doing the stealing...

WELL KNOW FACT: Your LAME joke is based on things that are almost 30 years out of date. Are you so unimaginative that you can't come up with any new material and are stuck wallowing in your outdated parroted ?

Guy I know did Rolling Thunder from Cali to the Wall. I admire the sentiment and all being about as patriotic a guy as you'll find, but was boasting about riding 3000 miles, 2 seconds behind the bike in front of you, 80 miles at a time. Not for me.

And, as John Prine sings, "Your Flag decal won't get you into heaven anymore."

Oil or Sand.. both can be pretty unsettling when you rush up on them. Whats you way of coping?

Instincts take over as the supercomputer between my ears starts calculating the odds and where I'm likely to end up. First, look for a way to avoid, if no escape is available, stand the bitch up while hitting the binders.

Also the pressure of my sphincter squeezing would be approaching infinity.

The second pic appears to show possible clear tracks not available in the first pic.

What would you do?

If the pressure of your sphincter squeezing does in fact reach infinity, does it form a black hole?

I'd do the same thing, without the benefit of a supercomputer between my ears. Actually, it's more like a 1981 calculator watch. First, try to find a path through, otherwise stand the bike up and trust the ABS and hope there's no vehicles in the opposite lane.
