He lost consciousness and was revived by paramedics. Obviously, he is only alive because he was wearing a helmet. I guess I should start wearing one, this looks pretty bad.









I had a very similar experience...I was not wearing a helmet. I lived although with many other terrible injuries that a helmet would not have prevented. I now believe in helmet usage although I still dont wear it religiously ( Now that the warm weather is here I plan on being religious) I wont make a hypothetical comment on how someone lives/dies without one as doing so would make me feel preachy...to each his own within ones abilities.

I've wanted to get stills and video of everyone and their bikes as well as hook up the bike cam rigs I have for anyone who wants to show off their skills during daylight. Polish up your bikes and bring out the bling. Fixed/ss would be great if we can keep it to that. I have a big garage that has no car so bike parking is no problem.

This is a totally weather dependent event so as the week progresses I will continue to update people. Come for an hour or come for the whole afternoon we'll eat, drink and be merry. If the weather is still doing well I'll start collecting a list of peeps who are interested. And I'll have information at the Safety Meeting for sure.

I hope people want/do come out and that everyone rides safe!
Nice. After 6 for me tho.

I would love to come but I'm stuck in meetings all weekend with one assignment left to go. After next week, I'm hoping I'll have time to flourish and be happy.

I'm only concerned for Saturday..... Sunday is your own lookout buddy, appease your deities appropriately.
How was The Rock?
Widget update! How the heck does my Mac know what the weather is going to be. It must make it up......

I think those are solar flares shooting out to destroy cell reception and the power grid.
