At this point, I pretty much have nothing to say but "F it," "oh well," and "shit happens." If you think you can magically spread the resources of your brain out over a larger array of tasks without thinning out the cover, go ahead. Just be prepared to look someone's mother, father, brother, sister, or children in the eyes when you screw up. Too many people refuse to acknowledge that they are just as fallible as everyone else out there.

Don't text and ride. Seriously.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

You can kiss my old hairy butt.

That's your opinion, a minority of people cause crap to happen and the majority pays the price.

Your judgement of others (Too many people refuse to acknowledge that they are just as fallible as everyone else out there...) proves one thing, maybe two.

Anyway, it's as clear as a well polished diamond that you are among those that should not text, or chew gum, while riding your motorcycle.

The resources of your brain are not the same as the resources as someone else's brain, pull your head out of your helmet, it's on backwards, and smell the racing fuel.

And that's a simple example.

More than a few people would quit after the first few days, some just can not do it, and that's OK -

As long as they don't expect to make the same $$$ as those of us that can!

Anyway, I don't mean to argue with you about it, I'm sure you know more about anything and everything than I do, and look better doing it, and that you can tell the difference between your suspension settings too boot!

The week before last, I was driving to the airport and I had a text come in. I read it, and the passenger freaked out big time.

Look, we were on a long straight, divided highway, no traffic within site, nothing to be concerned with, I'm going to glance at my message while doing the normal look up to the right, straight ahead, left and behind - then back to the message.....

Some people never will get it, never will, I try and avoid "that type", best for everyone involved.
Deer can pop up out of nowhere it's happened to me several times.
