Wayne, thanks I've been "around the block" a few times and learned some stuff the hard way too. I'm 54, in my 20's I gave up the bikes after a nasty accident. Cut-off on the interstate @65 while riding my beloved Norton. I had a Bates suit of leather on. Thankfully only one broken bone (minor arm fracture), just banged up real good. VA Trooper said I bounced like a basketball in his report, he saw the accident. My leathers were the only thing that saved me (and they represented 2 months salary at the time). Yes I've always driven "hot cars" most of my life and begrudingly paid the high insurance too. Young guys and their need 4 speed is a hard game to win or even survive in. I've seen too many just like him! (Big Bob & his Lighting, Dorsey & his Daytona, Wrench & his Trike, Black Calvin & his Ninja, JoeyC & BSA just to name a few and they were just the DOA's). All of them said the same thing, just because you screwed up Rich doesn't mean I will. Ok maybe he's right. I sure hope he is.
Hey, I give him the info he wanted re peds, the other stuff, well that was just my person stuff he can take or leave. It is his choice. I know you understand & that's all that counts. Rich
