When the price of your helmet is of no concern!
« on: February 06, 2008, 03:50:46 pm »
A truck was travelling down the highway at around 1 o??clock in the morning near Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Truck driver said he felt an impact, and it took almost a 1/4 mile for him to pull over to investigate.

This is what he found ?....

Wear your helmet!   -  Note: possible disturbing viewing

The motorcyclist was going at ~200 kmph and ran into the back of the moving semi-truck .... and miraculously survived ! at least according to this website, conflicting reports are however found on other sites.

It pays to wear your ATGATT -

There is nothing you can do about the past and you can't predict the future...all you have is the now...live it to the fullest.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
