ive seen a harley guy talking on his cellphone i dont know how he did it. i was more interested how he was hearing the person on the other line more than i was concerned for his safety in traffic.

Rush hour traffic??? I'll be more amazed if I see a biker using a cell phone on a highway doing 90 mph.

Didn't you ever see Torque?

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment

You didn't happen to notice the brand of phone cause that's awesome he was able to hear with all the wind. I have a hard time hearing on my phone when I drive with the window partially open.

And I have seen a couple of people on cruisers talking on their cell phones.....
