Brother lays it down

8 posts in this topic

My brother layed his new bike down on friday night. He is not hurt to bad, thank god. Just a bum wrist and very sore. A guy in a in a minni van pulling a trailer rolled a 2 way stop sign. Never looked to the left. His opions were to hit the trailer or put it down. The guy hesitated when he went down, then spead off quick as quick.

The Shadow is in tuff shape. Highway bars are wrecked, saddle bag on one side is torn, handle bars are bent beyond repair, clutch lever and mirror got snapped off, and the tank is all caved in on one side. Sounds like the ins. co. is leaning twards totaling it.

But he is not hurt, so that is good. When are people going to pay attention???

People are never going to pay attention and it gets worse every day. I've got some pretty old gravel in my right knee and thankfully no fresh stuff.

I agree. People, being in cars or on bikes don't pay attention sometimes. It's just the biker that gets it, being more vulnerable.

Biggest problem is everyone is in a rush.

Glad he didn't get hurt too badly. smile

Glad he made it through it without serious injury.

Whether in a car or on a bike/ATV, I'm always watching intersections for people who are not slowing down. It's saved my tail on more occasions than I care to count.

It was cool out so he was wearing his leathers. "Got his slide on"

Guess they worked as advertised.

Glad he is OK. I miss riding. I wrapped mine around the front of a ladies car and have not ridden since. Luckily I walked away. You have to be SO careful. People just don't look.

I still get the itch when I look at bikes......

Glad he's not hurt bad, we have to get more defensive every day. On a high note, looks like a new ride might be in the works.

    • well factor in cost of living and its a wash
    • Same ol story. The Liberals cant handle defeat. Like when Gore lost and Kerry lost. They just cant handle that there are people outside of NY and California and that they own guns, drive pick ups and vote.
    • My brother-in-law is serious about his whiskey, and he usually drinks either Crown or Pendleton.  My wife has drank Windsor for years.     Can't stand the stuff myself - probably got sick from overloading on it in my younger days.  Strictly beer for me - preferably a good craft beer, but normally Grain Belt or Schell's if it's available.    
    • Their, there. I was.  Not overly excited by anything I saw. Did get to shoot the Gearhead bow and was fairly impressed. Some uniqueness to this bow, and completely reversible right to left so dealers should like that as far as reduced inventory they must carry.  And the lightest crossbow out there. The new Halon shoots extremely well but like its predecessor just too heavy for my taste.  The Bowtech Reign felt pretty good, but again nothing special.  Everyone makes a roto molded cooler, trail camera, and broadhead nowdays. Liked the cast aluminum tree stands from Rivers Edge at a better price point than others.  Hawk is making some neat treestands and accessories. Goldtip was doing a demo bending their arrows vs other brands and was quite amazing how much farther theirs would bend before breaking, and how much their arrow recovered (would not take a set) after bending vs the other brands. I might switch just because of the durability and straightness factor. Got to hold the new world record Tennessee non-typ.  That's a lot of horn.
    • Therefore, if there is no point in making a point, that makes it a moot post to make a point that there is no point. so I'd like to point out that I find this entire dialogue pointless.    Sillytown has run amuck. 
    • Ayup. They asked me to take his place, but I can't stand Rawlings.    http://www.gasmonkeygarage.com/yes-aaron-the-bearded-wonder-is-leaving-gas-monkey-garage/
    • That does look like a fun day!
    • What? This can't be. Aaron's the real car building brains of this show. Richard is just the clown. Together they made it work. Apart?
