If you believe the Bushwhacking we took didn't happen, you have brain damage... If your neck gets sore, work out more.

The only "bushwhacking" you took happened when you were standing behind a bush at a playground. Pervert!

Like that's really going to help when your heads moving around like bobblehead for over 100 miles. Do you lift weights with your neck? That would explain an awful lot about you.

Course, you'd have to ride to know that. And we know you only comment on things you know nothing about, then fire insults when proven wrong, so we're not surprised.

Enough to make over 100 miles of being jerked around like a bobblehead not hurt? No matter how much one works out, that's still going to hurt. Course, trust you to hang up on a minute detail and not the topic of the actual thread. Topix would have to shut down if you actually posted something relevant.

It has nothing to do with this thread, as usual. And I don't really want to know what he/she/it does to "strengthen neck muscles", or why.

Btw- I really like the adding 100 miles... Since you NEED to continue to change the "rules" to have a point, you actually realize you don't under the original premise... Best of ALL, you continue to change ANYTHING, you can "think" of, while pretending(OOPS), you're not FAILING !

What she should be doing is asking why trucks are still doing using recap tires, i had one come apart in front of me and it took out my windshield and damage the front of my car, this is caused by under inflation, you will never see a driver with a tire gauge checking his trailer tires, as long as they have some air they don’t give a shet. You see the remains of recap tires all over the interstate hi ways, this wasn’t a freak accident it happens all over the country, especially out west where the temps are higher.
ever seen that episode of Mythbusters? the one about the tire shreds.
they confirmed the myth that the shreds can kill a person. check the footage at 4:37 onwards. it takes the head off at the neck.

That's why you never draft semi trucks on a bike. I see some inexperienced riders do that. They don't understand that if he loses any rubber, it's going to fly right into you and likely kill you. That's why you stay where they can see you until you're sure they do, then get the hell out of their blindspot as quickly as possible.

So do Deer that jump in front of a bike, so do birds that fly into the path, so do frozen ice turds that fall from airplanes in front of the biker, so do asteroids that fall to earth.

So what!

Life has one gaurantee.....death.

Leave me alone and I will leave you alone!

I agree with Svengoolie. She's one of the smartest girls on Topix, and pretty too.

I don't find fault with the mother in this story. She is in mourning and needs to do something. She seemed to have done everything she could to convince her daughter to wear a helmet. The real problem with this young girl is not that she was not wearing a helmet, but that it is likely she was not an experienced enough rider to be on 694 in traffic on a motorcycle. She certainly should have been wearing boots and not flip flops.

Nice you can second guess, but "pretend" laws aren't beneficial to protect stupidity against itself...Then again, you encouraged violent talk... because YOU need a surrogate manhood...(and many more commas).

The real problem I have with this is how Brittany obviously supported helmets being optional, yet her mom and the leftists are using her to promote a helmet law even though a helmet wouldn't have saved her.
