    I'm very sorry he died in his tragic accident, from all I have seen and heard he was a very decent guy. His not wearing a helmet does not change the fact that I am sorry he died. Are you so much of a frickin' gear nazi that you think we should all be happy that somebody died?

    Maybe we should just point out that if IL didn't ride motorcycles, this accident would not have happened. Only a dumba$$ would take any risks. I guess I'll haul my dumb a$$ out and ride now.
    Where did I say anyone should be happy someone died? I'm just saying it's hypocritical to hype gear and then to say thing like (similar to . . . not direct quote), "Oh, how sad. He was an icon."

    Maybe you should choose better heroes.

    I think the Everest climbers example is a poor one.

    These "climbers" no matter how inexperienced, throw their money at those who know what they're doing. Its these guides job to take care of them and ensure their clients safety. This does, of course, matter on the client AND the guide service.

    A better example might be Free Solo climbers- those that climb without any sort of fall protection (rope) You could be the world bestest rock climber on something you've done dozens of times before and is WELL within your capabilites. Then comes that bird swooping down, or that rock flake that has slowly loosened over the years and SPLAT!! or even worst.. fall, bump, fall, bump, roll, bump, THUD!!

    What Indian Larry did was foolish, even stupid but he accpeted the risks and paid, the ultimate price, for it.

    How about this? Can someone be an icon in on area of their lives and be stupid in another area? For example Michael Jordan...great BB player , poor husband. Kobe Bryant... ditto. Michael Jackson...nuff said. Kurt Cobain, And I am sure I could think of more given the time. Indian Larry was an Icon in the bike building area, kinda stupid in the riding,showing off department.

    And when your soft head smack hard asphalt at that height and speed, it's your time to go.

    That all depends....if I shoot myself in the head with a shotgun I'm going to go whether it was my time or not, there's no way out of that.

    If you're a believer in God, you are instructed to NOT tempt the Lord....

    Example...you've driven a car right? That car had brakes on it right? I believe without doubt that the Lord can stop that car at any given moment if he chooses to.....but I'm not going to tempt Him by not applying the brakes when needed.

    As for the sacks comment.....some people have a lot less sense than others too!
