    .
    Even a helmet can’t save your life when your body stops suddenly from a high rate of speed.

    1. It’s like in The outlaw Josey Wales it’s not the fall that gets you it’s the sudden stop at the end.

  2. Well another donor cycle Rider earns their wings. Pretty dangerous hobby if you ask me. I never read articles that say man killed on 9th hole of golf course nope never see it. I wouldn’t be so callous if they weren’t so jerky in The way They Ride. I wonder if this guy had loud pipes because those supposedly save lives?

  3. Darwin Award Committee has been busy this year… It would be Interesting to know the maker of the Motorcycle that ran into the back of a car produced by HONDA (another motorcycle maker).
