Re: Honda blows up real good!!

couple of interesting comments on his side

"I was speeding a little bit. I was going about 100mph in a 65"
"I was going faster than the limit, but I wasnt doing any crazy weaving in and out, just driving nonchalontly" hmm, 100 mph is nonchalant?



that is a CRAZY story! but that is what happens when you ride a honda

Re: Honda blows up real good!!

I prefer my bikes medium rare. Wierd...I'd like to know more about the cause of the engine failure.

I do all my own stunts.

Uh, yeah. It can be. On that note though why would someone wear gloves and yet have shorts on? And now doesn't want to get on a bike again?

Re: Honda blows up real good!!

This one is a good one as well,

"I have been riding since I was 7 and have had some eye opening mishaps, but I think it's a very rare when a bike explodes while riding it. With the proper gear you may have not got hurt at all. So don't give up on bikes just yet. Even though I mentioned gear... on a hot day I would wear sandels, shorts and a tank, but if you do it right, it can be pretty safe. Glad to hear you came out pretty good though, because it could have been a lot worse."

ALWAYS wear proper gear...even if its only a few miles.

I wonder why it exploded like that though.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

I work in O-towm. 100mph on I-4 is insane. Squidboy is a punk.

And I think lying. The whole it blew, caught fire and exploded sounds like an off the cuff story to cover a crash. Without being there I can never tell but something smells like about this story.

Re: Honda blows up real good!!

he must have done something to make it blow up if that even is the case. Only thing I can think of is he had a gas leak that ignited but that doesn't account for the oil shooting all over his bare legs. what an arse, as Soon2b pointed out about squids wearing sandals and shorts sayig it can be safe, thats such bullshit. lets say you are so freaking good and can avoid any accident or mishap, how you gonna upshift and not eventually hurt your toes. its not a cruiser so it didn't have the heal shifter. so this guy is a liar IMO

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Hmm running down the road to fast pass the unmarked cars.... Lose it scattering parts (cover by 'explosion') the tank busts resulting in a fire. Of course the injury to him would be hard to tell since he is rashed from riding in shorts. Just speculation
