I took a barn swallow to the chest at 60 once, I don't know how I kept control but I never felt anything like it before or since.

Ran over a woodchuck at 60 two weeks later in about the same spot. I don't ride after dark too much anymore.

Yeah, about that. I actually don't. This is the most consecutive time I've spent hanging out here since I joined. Having said that, the drift here is very comparable to what I'm used to "over there".

I watched my dog chase its tail today. Yeah, very intertaining. About as much as watching paint dry or grass grow. :groan:

Wife's gone up where we used to live for her monthly doctors visit and drop off Christmas presents. Was supposed to pick up a stripped lower but got a delay on it so we'll have to make a run up there Saturday when her 3 days runs out. I plan on surprising her and taking her out to lunch at our favorite restaurant up there that we haven't been to in years to celebrate our anniversary late.

I finished up 8 Gunsmith 91/30 tools this morning and modified10 screwdrivers into lock screw removal tools for the Enfield #4 set I make, milled a notch out of the 20 new tools for the SMLE then it was quitting time. Unloaded about 50 chunks of firewood out of the truck and stacked it, have some freezing rain in the forecast here in a few days.

Late congrats on the anniversary!

Somewhat different ways to treat different back issues. Bones out of joint takes one way, strained takes another, spasms take still another, and old injuries are ongoing. All require various rest and stretching requirements. The hardest part is to work it only as fast as it is recovering without over doing it.

So, what was the first thing you thought when it hit you? Also, what do you suppose was the last thing to cross the bumblebee's mind when it hit you? His asshole! :groan:

As to helmet usage, I always hated them myself, but usually wore one because the Navy required it on base even if the State had no helmet law. Now, I feel the same way about them as I do about seatbelts. I feel it should be left up to the individual. If involved in an accident, the other driver should not be charged with manslaughter or be made responsible for ongoing medical bills for something that might have been prevented by the protective gear.

This^^
I have had a standing DNR order in my wallet since I was young. Live or die it has never mattered much to me. Selfish? Maybe. Just like having children because you want them, not because they are needed. Pure selfishness. Nobody really needs children.

I really don't/didn't need to remain living, folks did just fine before me, I am pretty certain I'd be forgotten after I'm gone. I never expected to live beyond my 20's. But now I'm in my 60's. Life has never gotten any better no matter how hard I worked. Now I can't work hard. It just keeps getting better... :?

I think it's a moot point regardless. I'm barely riding my Harley these past couple of years. Nevertheless, the entire point of the discussion was to show that our government, at least in these matters of forcing safety measures on people, has turned into a totalitarian government whereas it should be personal choice. They seized on this argument because it resonates with women for the most part. Keep our kiddies safe at all costs. But then the insurance lobbies jumped on the bandwagon. Maybe they actually built the bandwagon and women jumped on board. :dunno: Nobody has ever stopped anyone from wearing a helmet if they want to, there are definitely times and places folks should be required to wear one, on public roads is not those places. On private property; racing venues, off-road, being a couple such places. Riding a snow machine is a great time to wear one (voluntarily) for many reasons including safety, since crossing private property is common on a snow machine.

Today's helmets are likely much better; lighter, more aerodynamic, and safer, than they were 45 years ago when I started riding. Back then they were 5lbs of fiberglass with a Styrofoam liner with some cloth glued to the inside. They were hot, heavy, caught the wind, shook your head back and forth, pulled up on your chinstrap, collected every bee and bug from the entire roadway, and were otherwise miserable. Not to mention the masculinity factor. No risk, no glory. :thumb:

Speaking of bees, when I got my first Harley back in '81 ('80 XL Sporty) I was headed to my sisters house about 10 miles down the interstate on a hot summer day in St. Louis. I got caught in a heavy rain shower, which in itself hurt at 70mph with just a t-shirt on. After getting out of the rain I ran into a small swarm of honeybees. Scooped them up inside the helmet, stuck to my wet shirt, I got nailed at least 5 times with stings. I've never been allergic to bees but they still hurt like hell.

In 40 plus years of riding I've likely experienced most things bad that can happen. A 2x4 kicked up by tire in front of me that barely missed me but hit my sissy bar, a bird in the chest, a dump truck that dumped his load of gravel and wrecked his truck right in front of me going 55mph. Fog, heavy rain, freezing temps while soaking wet and getting hypothermia going over Vail pass, wrecking my Honda 750 at over 100mph in Louisiana which broke my ankle (while in the Air Force stationed at Barksdale AFB), playing white-line games at 80+mph going through Glenwood Canyon on my Softail, watching friends hit concrete barricades at high speed (he survived), rolling down steep hills tangled up with my Honda 350 street and trail bike, and hitting a tree on the same bike at over 50mph breaking bones. I've had people try and run me off the road, throw lit cigarettes at me on purpose, toss beer bottles at me, water balloons full of piss, you name it. I even had a good Samaritan semi driver run one of those harassers off the road for me in Arkansas when I was riding back to base after a weekend in St. Louis late at night. All I know is the station wagon went down a really steep embankment and neither of us stopped to see how they fared. I failed to remember to put my feet down after coming to a complete stop at stop signs a number of times due the devil's alcohol. What I haven't done is hit a left turner, I come really close a few times however.

And through many of those times I was not wearing a helmet. The 100plus mph wreck was no helmet, the hill climbing wrecks were all with no helmet, a crash and burn on my Yamaha 400 dirt bike at WFO was without a helmet (on a sandbar), the bird in the chest, 2x4, white line dancing, and hypothermia was in Colorado, so no helmet.

I came to understand that God didn't want me and neither did the devil. So here I am, still wondering what my destiny might be...
