    According to their stats, riding without any alcohol in the blood is pretty
    dangerous!!
    And girls are much safer riders.

    I'm one of the "no"s
    I know I was breath tested once when I was starting to feel uncomfortable,
    and the copper said I was way under. Although I've seen many stages of
    intoxication, I have no Idea which one is 0.05%

    Same here.. I know when I lots OVER .05, but to judge legally if I was
    under, I would say NO.

    I can tell when I'm over 0.02. One of the advantages of being an occasional
    drinker.

    No, I couldn't which is a bummer 'cos we regularly get breath tested at work.
    Any deflection of the needle means arrest and taken to a hospital for blood
    testing. It's hard to know how much one can really have the night before.

    To illustrate what your entire body will feel if you fall off wearing your
    full Chapel Street outfit.

    Pretty effective I reckon.

    Wonder what the video is gonna look like!

  13. Ha - have a look at the crash data by gender.

    1 Unknown seriosly injured
    1 Unknown minor injury
    1 Total Unknown

    I wonder if this is two accidents from the same tranny?

    It's make more sense to mail you a lump of armco or a Land-Cruiser bull-bar to beat yourself with!
    No-one slides very far in road crashes (especially in cities).

  15. They could send out little cheese cutters to illustrate the joy that is
    WRB's...

    AND they are functional.

    Well, then. If you had a look at "crash data" -
    48% of deaths occurred on roads sign posted at 100km/h or more.

    You can say whatever you want, I don't care it's your life and wtf do I have
    to do with that. For myself though, I'm not getting on my bike without
    proper protection.

    If you're so worried why not just stay on sub-100km roads?
    (..and how many of those deaths were caused by sliding?)
    Besides; I'm not the one who brought it up (like it was some kinda' important revelation...)

    [...
    I'm not particularly worried, like I said I dress up. And I try to ride
    within my limits :)
    Point. Another point though would be the number of guys not dying but ending
    up with a hurt that they wish they had! Not me. :)
    Always!

    Quite. Being dead is one thing, being dead and having the first weeks
    of your afterlife spoiled by road rash itch is a total bummer.
