    Wow, awesome pic. However, I must warn you that bikes are no joke when it comes to accidents. There's a thread around here somewhere that details E's accident on his bike a while ago. He's lucky to still be alive.

    One of my friends wrecked doing about 50mph on a freeway interchange, and he was wearing full leathers and a full helmet too... not even trying anything aggressive, just going around a turn.

    He was in a coma for 3-4 months, and still hasn't recovered full motor control and speech a year and a half later. At least his brain is still functioning normally (mostly)- he's still pursuing his master's in Mechanical Engineering.

    Be careful out there.
