:lol: There's no helmet law here, so the squids are plentiful.

Something I notice a lot lately are the sport bike riders who bring their helmets, only they have them hanging off the helmet clip when they ride. :lol: Jackazzes.

The tank tops and sandals is also one of my favorites. :D

I dropped my bike in the driveway, though, so I guess I can't point the finger too much. :ack:

I noticed alot of riders up the Bike Fest last month, having their helmets strapped to the bike..Im like, whats the point, so people think your responsible atleast some of the time?? :ack: I mean if your sitting in bump n go traffic, maybe thats one thing to take it off, since your not moving awhole lot (which was the case closer to the grounds) but these guys/gals had thiers strapped to the bike going to I-83 at over 100 mph.. :shock:

Im guilty of looking at myself in windows when riding by..some i'll alittle bit of a squid I guess too :lol:

I dont understand the deal w/ quarter or half shells either to be honest...most sportbikers wear full face, for obvious reasons..but the quarter & half shells will protect the top of your head, but hell, what about the rest :shock: I mean, if you go down, the top of your head is nice n safe, but your face, the sides and back of your head are all mangled up..I just dont understand. I know b/4 the PA helmet law was lifted, it was a rebel act for alot of riders, wearing only the bare minimum to be legal, but now that its lifted, they still wear them alot of the time..why bother..but thats just me.

Its good to hear that she NOW knows not to try to make those tires nice and shiney. :) Yes, you do know she meant well and loves helping her hubby out with his new toy. Is she going to get a bike as well or ride your old one with you?

she cant even get my 83 yamaha off the kick stand, so needless to say, she'll be looking for something along the lines of an EX500, GS500E, CBR600f2, etc. She "should" be able to handle that. ;)
