Things NOT to do on a motorcycle

The other day my step-brother Rob and I decided to get our bikes out and go for a ride down the road. It was a rather nice day and we were just going down the block. No helmets and no jacket. All Rob was wearing was basketball shorts and a cut off shirt, I was in jeans and a t-shirt. I had just pulled back into my garage when I heard the sound. a sound unlike another. I heard his engine rev'd and then scraping.

I knew right away what had happened. He broke loose in some loose gravel and then the bike hooked up. When it caught pavement the front came up and over. Down he went rolling like a tumble weed. For not having a helmet or any protective gear one he was really lucky. No broken bones just some major road rash.

the worst part was he had just got the bike back form a guy who was going to buy it. Guess he should of. I made him an offer of $500 and if nobody makes a higher offer its mine Wednesday.
