Just curious - What are some of the more memorable comments or comebacks you heard or said regarding motorcycles & accidents?

My least favorite was: "I'm against motorcycles because there are too many cars that crash into them & kill the cyclists." This one was the reciepient of the Moron-Who-Said-This-While-I-Was-Laid-Up-In-The-Hospital Award.

My most favorite was: "Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?!" from none other than Ed.

Still one of my favorites: "There was nothing I could do--I had to lay 'er down."
Yes, I'm certain that a bike will steer better laying on its side than upright on its tires. But what do I know...

Bwah, ha ha!

Here's another one: a nurse saw me in my crutches and said, "Oh my, what happened you?" and I said, "A lady ran a red light and hit me with her car while I was driving home on my motorcycle." She replied, "Those two-wheelers are so dangerous." [insert anime reaction here]

My favorite reply to "motorcycles are soooo dangerous" is, I've never had one jump out and bite me yet.

Other replies to the Motorcycles are Dangerous comment:

No, motorcycles are inanimate. People are dangerous.

If a person makes assumptions about motorcycles, there's no forgiveness because motorcycles only funtion within the laws of physics. What happens is because of people, not because the motorcycle didn't like you.

You/they should have been paying closer attention.

The physics involved in operating motorcycles are absolute. Idiots like yourself prove this all the time.

Or..

Why would you ride a scooter?

Why wouldn't you?

I love it when wannabe bikers realize it takes more balls to ride these than to be a sheep in a herd. (yes I know its flock but herd sounded better at the time)

I'm not a follower or a leader. I'm who I am.

People leave me alone. I like that.

Ok, I deleted the first time then. Not sure why you didn't like the first time but that's you I guess.

If you find you don't like the second time then I can't help you.

Dammit you deleted the second one not the first now it really is no good. Try leaving the second one and deleting the first then it may work out. But never mind. Don't hat me over this ok?
