Helmet usage for bikes, just like seatbelt usage for cars I guess.01RKRiney said:why does ANY write up about a motorcycle wreck have to mention helmet usage?
what's the point? If you have a wreck on a bike, it's gonna hurt..helmet or not
Exactly right. You can usually tell if the cager sees you by making eye contact. Then there are those that turn anyway...all you can do then is grab the brakes and hope for the best. I don't know how many times i've had cagers start to turn in front of me and then at the last minute notice me and stop half way across...in almost every instance i knew it was going to happen based on the cagers actions...like not looking in my direction before pulling out. In these situations i'm always looking for a possible escape route should the need arise.newultraclassic said:There is almost no defense other than watching for eye contact and also watching for wheel movement before you are committed.
That's when I worry the most, shut down the throttle and start reaching for the brakes. Had too many look right at me and pull out. It's like they look right through you.miles to go, Exactly right. You can usually tell if the cager sees you by making eye contact
The general public still beleive they save lives, if they did not, all helment laws would be abolished.I wonder why they said they are not sure they were wearing helemts.

Probably. They left behind children. Both rider and pillion were 32 years old. Firefighter and ladies aux. ... Hit by a 17 yo female making a left hand turn. My thoughts and wishes are with the survivors, especially the children.T4T said:Not 100% certain that it is the same accident but read on another site where a couple had died this past Thursday. Sounds like the same accident. Unfortunately they did have 3 children. My prayers are with them.
