Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Now that was an interesting bit of motorcycle trivia!

Follow your front wheel...
Steve S.

1998 Harley Davidson FLHR-P
1998 BMW R1100RT-P (Black Mariah)
2002 BMW K1200LTE (Bayou Buffalo)

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, is loud, goes fast, or shoots a big bullet, thus producing Torque or Recoil....It's Cool.

Don't know if you went to the homepage or not, but there are links to Daytona Beach "The Birthplace of Speed". Really good reading what with motorcycles, NASCAR, steamers, etc.

Highly recommend it!!! I learned a lot...

In my neck of the woods we do not call that a fatality. The crash was caused by heart attack and not the other way. We would label that a non-fatality.

fatality noun ( pl. -ties) 1 an occurrence of death by accident, in war, or from disease a person killed in this way.

It was a fatality alright. Just not a fatal crash. Either way, he was still dead.

Why don't you tell that to my supervisors. I was not doubting the meaning of the word, I was just telling you that it would not be classified as a fatality crash where I work. Yes, I know he is still dead. Jeeezch.
