    I remember as a kid, I tilted over and knocked the tail light out of a motorcycle that was parked on my street, with the handlebar. I don't recall ever being more scared in my life.

    This was after I fell off my bike a few years earlier and broke my arm. not exactly a graceful child.

    I read a while ago, the biggest danger to cyclists are......things that don't move.

    More deaths and injuries are attributed to lamp posts, skips, parked cars and solid immovable objects than any thing else.

    A little bit telling............

    My sister almost hit one of those when we were coming home from work it was dressed up in a raccoon costume. She was clipping down the road at 50 mph in her mercury estate she swerved so fast I thought the van was gonna flip over. She should have been a Indy car driver lol

    Holy Moly I'm glad we didn't hit you. That's it I'm installing an aftermarket rev limiter on her speedwagon tomorrow and set it 25 rpm that should bring her cruising speed down to about 1.3 miles an hour. Hopefully that won't happen again. :)

    That's cool I'm used to it, being a ghost zombie pirate robots from the future and all. :thumb:

    Man, when I was a kid, helmets were unheard of. We biked crazy. But I don't remember anyone getting hurt. Did like one kid split his skull and ruin it for everyone?

    Yes I think so. When I was in like 4th grade i used to play a game with all the kids in the block with lawn darts we would all stand in a circle and one kid would throw the dart as high as he could straight up then we would all go running so it didn't hit us on the head when it came down. We all lived. No one even got any serious injury lol :)

    When I was working downtown I was much more afraid of cyclists than car.
