Why the negative feedback on this post?? Look, potholes are everywhere, sand and busted asphalt are all over the place, cagers aren't looking for bikes right now, I think it would be good advice to stay of the roads for at least a couple of weeks until the roads and the weather get better. Sure, be a tough guy and ride now, but I knew one of the toughest riders I ever met, and he DIED last year in Missouri after hitting a pothole, the pothole threw him and his bike into a ditch, and his face hit a tree head on. I have known very few who could ride a Harley as well as he could, and alcohol and drugs were not a factor in his death. He was even wearing a helmet.

I'm leaning towards the "it was a medical condition" routine. I'd much rather go out while riding a bike on a beautiful Saturday, especially if I look cool doing it.

U R A cognatively challenged fella. We all know up here in MN that potholes cause instant medical conditions if hit on a street bike. MnDot would never want the MN Highway Patrol to report that the guy hit a pothole, jacking him violently, creating a medical condition resulting death.

But did he have loud pipes? According to the bumper stickers they save lives.
