Does riding my K100RS in a neck brace following a vertebral fusion surgery count?

I suppose I lose points since the surgery was not related to a crash.

Talking I underestimated the ability of a discussion to degenerate so quickly!

JimStrider - good job! I was actually trolling for Pep, but your comments were presented intelligently so what the heck...

My original post was meant to criticize someone who couldn't be bothered to help a new rider. After the responses to my first post, I am inclined to ease off the written assault of you hard heads!

Go help your fellow riders, noob or veteran

My Number

I'll PM you my cell number, call me in the morning. Need to head to the office and let them know I am gone and that I missed a huge deadline, but the reality is if that I don't go it will never get done.

I need this, I hope they will understand.

It'll be a good ride

I would say riding with people who drink/toke, but I won't even ride with them, so they don't make me uncomfortable.

It's the newbies that scare me. I take it realy easy, but even at or below the speed limit, I've seen plenty of scary shit in the rear view.

I don't like to see people ride off the road, and I've had two newbies do that, even though the speeds we were going, one would barely have to lean the bike over to turn.

Both times, they said they just couldn't turn the bike any more, which scared the crap out of me, considering the speeds we were going.


That said, unless they are impaired, I'll ride with anyone.

I ride alone. I'm competitive by nature and riding with a fast group always turns into a race. Almost lost the use of my legs 10 yrs ago and cannot have another bad crash. Also don't want to slow anyone down. Like to ride my own pace and take breaks when need be. Ride safe

i have a zero EtOH rule personally.

my friends get enough drinking in when NOT riding that they are able to not drink while out on the bikes.

i HAVE been out with a guy who had a few beers and a few puffs...didn't think much of it at the time because he was one of the crustiest oldest fattest bike mechanics i have ever met...and he probably didn't get that way by allowing himself to ride when completely smashed...i figured he could be trusted to know his limits. he never had more than a small dugout and 2 beers within an hr of riding...from what i saw. 300lb guy on a gixxer.

it's amazing the people u meet in bars lol.
