Default Potholes

For forty some days we have not been above freezing so there have potholes showing up all over the place. Now we finally had a all most fifty degree one day and the bikes were coming out to ride.
If your in a city that has pot holes you know what I mean. There were two guys flying down one of the highways late at night and the highway patrol figured they were doing over a 100mph. One hit a pothole and went into a wobble and crashed. There found his helmet a couple hundred yards away from him. Yes he died his chin strap was not hooked.
Now the state is talking Halmet law again.
Don't rush into riding and look where you going

I haven't broken mine out because of this and the massive amounts of crap on the road. I want to, I see a few others out there as desperate as I... but I've really been fighting the urge because in a couple weeks it will be better and roads will be cleaner, pot holes are always about but at least I will be able to see them easier.

Why do we make laws to protect Stupids? We need to thin down the population a little. Or send them to Oregon.

For my entire life I haven't worn a helmet... for some reason though I feel like maybe I should try and get over the hate for them this season... I have no idea why I have this strange feeling that I need to try this but I'm not sure if I want to ignore it or not...

Don't ignore that shit man. I'm not debating the law in states that don't require helmets. That is your choice. But if you're gut is telling you something...well ya never know.

Thanks anyway, we already have our share of stupids. They run for public office as a Dem, the public employees pay dues (stupid too) to their stupid unions that pay for the stupid campaigns and our stupid electorate votes them in so Oregon can have a stupid government that thinks it knows how to spend your money and run your life better than you do.
