Sorry about your 'off!

Glad to hear that you walked away Mike, and sorry about the bike. Motorcycles can be replaced, but humans can't.

No fail here. Minivan driver pulls over. Riders go around. Riders wave to say thanks.

You think he went shopping for that TV, or just takes it everywhere so he has something to watch?

Maybe I'm wrong, or it's the angle of the photo... but isn't the knee slider NOT on the knee/side of the knee, and in no position to do any good?

He's got enough electronics on that bike to take him to Mars and back! It looks like he's reading a book (far left gizmo, next to the antennaed gizmo in the case, right in from of the AWACS radar gizmo).
