You Can't Fix Stupid!

Today while riding through South Park near Fairplay, Colorado I passed a rider on an HD who was not wearing a helmet. Shortly, my Valentine 1 Ka band starting beeping and I immediately slowed. As the Harley zipped around me I furiously began tapping my helmet. Sure enough, around the next curve, there he was -- nailed by the State Patrol. I rolled on past then pulled into a station in Fairplay to grab a bottle of water. Soon, in rode Mr. p---ed off Harley rider who confronted me – “Colorado ain’t got no helmet law you stupid mother f---er. ‘Sides—what the f—k is to you if I wear a helmet.” I allowed as how I knew there was no helmet law and really did not give a good god damn if he wore a helmet or not. Still obviously upset from his ticket, he got right in my face and spit: “Then why the hell you bangin’ on your f—kin helmet like some god dam eejit when I pass you—it pi---ed me so much I wasn’t paying no attention and got my self nabbed by the man – all because you bangin on your head trying to tell me I ain’t got no helmet on.” I didn’t even bother to try and explain why I was tapping my helmet. You can’t fix stupid.

Re: You Can't Fix Stupid!

Little smokey near South Fork, I read. Suprised HIPO not on evacuation duty instead. And, while riding without a helmet is indeed stupid, it's not so surprising the guy didn't understand you had an earphone in yours as he's pretty likely never ridden with earphones. Add inexperienced to stupid.
