Choking on veggies doesnt rank up there?

it was a sunny afternoon and in the hi-mid 30s.

i made up a much needed errand that absolutely demanded my immediate attention and took off on the lil zee.

it was nice to be zipping around lower westchester/northwestern bronx.

and i'm loving my hi-vis jacket.

all good.



be well.

rob

What's that old one, "when I go, I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming like the passengers in his plane".

If that's how he went, as said, not a bad way to go.

Then there's being shot in bed in your 90's by the jealous husband of the 20 year old.

Goodbye jumper.

I was riding home from NJ yesterday afternoon when I saw a bunch of cars pulled over to the side of the GW bridge. I hopped of and jumped onto the pedestrian path to see if there was anything I could do to help--turned out a woman had just jumped off the bridge. I couldn't bring myself to look, but I was on the verge of tears for the next little part of my ride. RIP.

Hey Folks,

not to be insensitive to recent tragedies appearing on this thread (RIP Jack), but a friend is looking for a bike to start riding.

Mostly looking at '08+ Ninja 250's for a reasonable price. Please PM me if you know about something.

Thanks,
George

I wish you wouldn't run into this tragedy. This type of stuff burns to memory and leave a scar.
Being there done that...
