Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

how big of a windshield is required to not have to wear eye gear?

on my bike, i would have to tuck into the handlebars like a poseur for the windshield to protect me. Cuz i have gotten pulled over for no eye wear.
