Accident

Hoped I would never see a motorcycle accident occur but did this afternoon. Young man was at the red light waiting for it to turn to green. The road had aN incline. Light turns green, young man leaves everyone at the light, tries to lift the front end of the bike off the ground to do a wheelie. HE DID NOT COMPLETE HIS WHEELIE. All cars stop and watch the motorcyle roll over and over - young man is thrown from the motorcycle - he rolls over and over - wearing shorts, tennis shoes and a t-shirt. He was lucky that the motorcyle did not roll over him. He got up limping and tried to lift his bike from the pavement. NO LUCK. Bystanders moved his bike from the road and he went to retrieve (from the road) one tennis shoe that came off. Will they every learn.

And there you have the definition of a Squid in action.

Not that I wish an accident on anyone, but it sounds like he was askin' for it. Bet his ego was as bruised as he was.

With all the title says, I was hoping it wasn't another Vulcaneer that had an accident! Glad it wasn't you!

Ouch. I'm glad he is all right, but I agree with Dan...I also cringe whenever I see guys riding in brain buckets, t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. Maybe its because I'm still new, but I always wear full safety gear, gloves, armored jacket, boots, jeans and full-face helmet.

I've gotten quite famious for walking up to people riding like that and telling them that they are dumbasses. Around here (Chicagoland), you have three types...
  • Sport bike rider with the douchbag wearing a full face helmet with a dago T and shorts. Sometimes with a piece of eye candy on the back with the thong showing above her shorts holding on for dear life... Usually under 28 years of age.
  • Goldwing rider who is wearing less then he wears at the beach. Usually a fat old man wearing flip-flops, black socks and shorts that might actually be his boxer briefs with a white t-shirt (sometimes stained with pizza sauce). Sometimes wears a helmet, and if he does it has the intercom sponge ball in his face.
  • Harley rider, usually in shape wearing shorts, sandles or tennis shoes and no shirt or a shirt with the sleves ripped off. Is usually in shape with a ton of tattoos just waiting to be torn up by the road. If wearing a helmet, it is a half helmet. Pipes on the HD are just too loud as he is reving the bike in a "look at the dumbass" way...

I usually save my abuse for the sport bike riding dork as the other two are either too old or too stupid to give **** to. Plus the HD rider usually cannot hear you anyway or is just mean enough looking to cause you to leave him alone. He knows he has more money then sense, so why rub it in...

And guess what, most of these young, stupid guys doing this stuff and then getting all banged up have no health insurance. They rack up hundreds of thousands of dollars in ICU cost(which is not hard to do) and then default on paying the bill which causes the hospitals to raise prices to try to offset their losses which then causes your insurance to go up. So guess who really pays for young stupid kids getting hurt. If you ask me it should be mandatory to be a organ donor if you ride without a helmet and should be mandatory to have adequate HEALTH insurance to ride a bike. Ok I am ready for the flaming. Let it begin.
