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.

I saw a rider over on CR talking about this. Supposidly he was just cruising on 55 when a 2 x 4 flew out of a truck. He tried to avoid it but ended up hitting it, broke front rim badly and damaged rear, flew off to the side of the road into the grass. Still on both wheels though. It sounded like a farmer came over to his aid and he was ok. I don't think the bike ever went down. Also a Lexus got the brunt of the 2 x 4 as well and flew in the grass behind him. Sounded bad. I am pretty sure he was OK though.
That would really suck!

The kid didn't make it... he was 29 and just got married in June. It was a friend of mine's named Caroline. She's not really talking right now because she's in shock pretty much... It was a 2000 Suzuki I think. It happened at 1:30am Sun am.

We say this every year, every season seems worse than the last.

Not to get off topic or anything but this is an old post. This is not the post for the accident this past weekend.
