Darwin Award Points

Regretfully, this image was on the front page of the electronic section of the local newspaper. What’s wrong with this picture?

  • Full face helmet (good), visor open (bad)
  • Shorts, not long pants
  • Flip flops? Oh, come on!
  • Riding to a bar that serves alcohol? Like a designated driver is going to take you home after you’ve been drinking? Really?

This is what I meant yesterday about the idiots who are gathering points for a Darwin Award while simultaneously giving the rest of us bikers a bad name. Shame, shame, shame.

Life is short: real bikers wear long pants and boots. Always. No exceptions. And they don’t drink and drive, either.
