Have you been in Nashville, Tennesee in the last year or so, localresident? You sure sound a LOT like someone who has. How about New Mexico?

"Retard" is the proper term for both a) people who choose to get intoxicated and ride, and b) those of the I-need-to-rev-to-120dB-for-no-at-3:00am-for-no-reason-crowd. can think of no other word that more accurately describes those two groups of people. The politically correct crowd can go pee up a rope. I have no idea whatsoever how the latter group is not ticketed, especially not during early morning hours. Dung beetles have more common sense.

Well, resort to insults if you must, but the fact of the matter is, if one is involved in a wreck with a bike, 3 wheels or 2, the bike generally loses. It doesn't surprise me that you'd resort to that sort of thing. There are always exceptions to any rule, and 55 degree days in the winter are one of them. Not of a LOT of those this year, were there? Anyway, the issue is how many bikers are killing themselves stupidly while others try to shift the blame elsewhere? You really need to take a chill pill there, localresident. Those last 2 posts were a tad overboard. I don't wish anyone dead, though I do hate Harley pipes and think they should be subjected to the same rules on exhaust noise as cars. I wonder if it's some sort of rule that 90+% of Harley riders feel the need to constantly rev their engines at stoplights and such? Nice choice of words too, "retard"...says a LOT about where your head is at. Isn't it a little dark up there?

Nutcases in the winter? Is it a nutcase when the temp hits 55 degrees or so? My god man, you have no shame whatsoever. The world apparently is completely insane when it doesn't fit your criteria. Jesus F C.

As for drinking and riding, you reap what you sew. And I bet, many of those fu**king tools riding those ridiculously loudass stupid Harleys like the Milwaukee Iron Morons that they are, deserve to land underneath a steamroller. And that includes every single GOD**MNED retard who feels the need to run to 35 MPH (Harley top speed, FYI) at 3:00 in the morning from the bars. May you each and every single one slide underneath a gas truck.

Your ignorance what it takes to navigate a motorcycle says more than enough about your experience than anything. First of all, you ride a three wheeler, which takes as much talent to ride as a mentally-challenged person who has their daily transportation based on three wheels. There is ZERO challenge involved in your ride, period. You're driving a car minus one wheel. There is NO challenge whatsoever in your choice of "motorcycle", and that term, in your case, is thrown around VERY loosely, if not sadly. Your choice of ride is little more than the lazy man's idea of motorcycling, which, to me, is NOT a motorcycle whatsoever. Good good, I can't believe you even challenged legitimate motorcyclists with your charade of a "motorcycle". What a joke. Move to two wheels and let those of us who know what actual riding is like when you grow up.

Not one word of your last post has anything to do with your ridiculous response in our first conversation to my saying how many motorcycle accidents are the result of actions of the motorcyclist and not anyone else. I agree that even in my own case I'm a better driver of anything than I was before I rode a motorcycle. That has NOTHING to do with so many people riding motorcycles while drinking, and there's more than a few that do, at least in this area. My comment was relative to what occurred before I began riding again regularly, and so far this year, it still does. Yes, I know a nutcase or 2 that ride their bikes in the winter. The large majority of people ride between May and probably Oct. Allowing for rain and bouts of cold, those roughly 26 weeks are down to a much lower number, certainly nowhere near the entire year. The fact that people do idiotic things while in cars doesn't mean Bikers don't do them just as often.

Alcohol/drug related incidents aside, again, if these idiots want to ride wasted that's their problem/own undoing. On May 26 alone 3 people were arrested in cars for DWI. People do ride their motorcycles almost every month of the year here. I saw them out on warm days since January 1, and ridden well into November/December. The notion that they don't appear until Memorial Day is incorrect. MY point is, that it is so easy to get a Driver's license, and that everybody EXPECTS to be granted one regardless of their less-than-capable abilities. Again, it has been proven that people who possess a motorcycle Driver's license are much safer drivers statistically, no matter what vehicle they are in. But, you see two accident reports in the paper and ALL motorcyclists are drug-fueled idiots. Check police reports for how many DWI reports happen in a week for cars, forget two. People in cars are largely inattentive, diddling with phones, radios, food, etc.

Well, there are only so many months of Motorcycle riding months, so MUCH less than 49 more weeks to go, and our original discussion was about WESTERN NY, YOU made it a global issue in an attempt to make a point, and yep, 2 so far, there'll be more accidents, and more the fault of careless stupid biking, and MY point was BIKERS need to be CAREFUL, especially in regard to DRINKING while riding. For some reason, that upset you, which made no sense to me.

Um, yes, because 99.999999999% of all motorcycle accidents around the world happen in WNY. So there are a bunch of miscreants in WNY who have no idea wtf they're doing on a motorcycle. So what? They're helping the rest of the species by removing some bad judgment genes from the face of the planet. you found two whole accidents a couple weeks apart. Good thing there are only 4 weeks in a whole year, or I'd say 49 more weeks to go.

My point was I said clearly that most of the documented motorcycle accidents in WESTERN NY, NOT Europe or elsewhere, were the fault of the Motorcyclist. You argued, here's 2 in 3 weeks. I rest my case. (I might add you got quite nasty about it as well. It hurts to be wrong, doesn't it)

Your point is? Like I said before, anybody getting on a motorcycle after drinking/drugging it up gets what they deserve.

Hey Localresident, that's 2 in about a 3 week span, one hit a deer in broad daylight while drinking and driving, and now this. Now, about that study...
