Must be nice to be a trust fund kid, and do NOTHING but PLAY all the time. Who in the fook has the time to dedicate ALL or most of their energy into something like this? I only play ONE game.... that is called LIFE....
I agree. But it sure does look like a fun career

I think if you ride dirt bikes seriously, you are guaranteed broken collarbones and such. I've been down going over 70 on the street and amazingly I did a bunch of cartwheels and somersaults and landed on my feet running. Havnt broke anything riding.

I slid for over a hundred feet once. Safety bar collapsed but thank god for the solid foot peg. When I stopped sliding, I just got up, righted the bike and off I went again.

1975 "failed to negotiate the turn" (is how the newspaper described it)
speedo was stuck at 107 when they drug the totaled bike out of the woods


tumbled 300ft (what the State Trooper told me) from where the bike went into the woods and I ended up on side of road at the foot of a bridge abutment

I walked away (drunk) with a dislocated big toe (which I set myself)
State Trooper happened to be my neighbor ...no ticket

next three days my body hurt from the tip of my mullet to end of my middle toe (the longest one on my foot)

mi vida loco

I think when dealers sell you a bike they should also help you select a wheelchair on their sales floor. Imagine a row of wheelchairs just like a row of bikes to choose from. A wheelchair to fit your budget!

Big bike guy. Was very famous until he died after standing up on his bike in his crucifix pose.
Seems like riding on 2 wheels is dangerous enough without pushing your luck. Lost a friend when I was young and another guy we knew died the day before his wedding. Guess Richard's post reminded me of it.
