Who has the worst luck?

Who has the worst luck on a road trip Achapman or Insomniac?

Here is the summary:

Achapman:

crashed bike
broken thumb
speeding ticket
ass kicked by police
bike impounded
arrested for fleeing and eluding
crazy ex-girlfriend reports bike (which is in her name) stolen.


Insomniac:

bike broke down 2 times, one needing a tow
almost got struck by a car on a dark highway
speeding ticket that requires him to appear in court in CO
parking tickets at home while gone
Confiscation, strip search, delay and possible fine from airport security
had to leave the bike in denver due to needing to be back at work asap
Pulled over and questioned by the police twice because his temp plates ripped off in the bad weather going through Iowa. .
The hotel threatened to tow his disabled bike when he parked it in front at 2am.


If I missed anything (good or bad) let me know and I will edit the post.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

But wait, theres more...

My temp plates ripped off in the bad weather going through Iowa. This resulted in me being pulled up twice by the cops for no other reason. One of the cops didn't believe my registration papers were real, even though I had the bill of sale handy.

My bike broke down a second unmentioned time, resulting in a tow.

The hotel threatened to tow my powerless bike when I parked it in front at 2am.

Based off of this thread I am voting Achapman. I think we jinxed Imsomniac and that was his problem.

The ride to Denver was surprisingly enjoyable. There was a huge downpour going through Iowa which led to a massive loss in traction when passing the large number of trucks I passed. Through Nebraska there was that much fog that my mind started playing tricks on me and I thought the road was curving... when it clearly wasn't. Thankfully the fog meant I saw no corn along the way.

Overall I enjoyed that segment of the trip, but Denver was a bit dull. Either way, heres a pic from Denver:

Asschaps lost his bike. He wins the bad road trip award.

But I do think Insomnica is a bad luck magnet.

I think its just a class 2 misdemeanor. No worries, I have a lawyer who will hopefully take care of it!

Its my 1st offense anyways.

The first step to turning your luck (life) around would be to understand that you received a ticket for reckless driving, not wreckless.

They don't give you a ticket for driving and not having a wreck.
