POINTS TO PONDER
"Indeed. I was also a fireman/EMT at one time on a pay call department. Even made Captain.
It was a beach town right on California Hwy 1. Lots of drunken crashes. Got so we never went anywhere on long holiday weekends. We made too much money with these kinds of wrecks.
Get a little numb from it. Like being in combat. Sure makes one want to drive a tank (which I do). And gives a perspective why so many fireman drive big SUVs...painted red.
Good to make people look at this stuff. But lots of young people think they are invincible. Especially 18-24 males on super bikes. We have a canyon road just behind the community that is favored by these guys.
Topanga Canyon in LA is famous for it's super bikes and super wrecks. Where the bikes drive right through the cars. Especially Japanese cars. Especially Hondas.
Brings back some old memories. And a reminder to stay clear of some of the favorite haunts for super bikes." --
