Years ago my brother was in Texas on a run and blew a front tire on his chopper at 70 mph. If you ever had a old chopper from the 70s with the front end raked and extended you know that they were kinda squirly with 2 good tires. He had to lay it down and ride the guard rail to the end. That would have killed an ordinary guy, he was too mean to die. He had road rash like the guys butt all over his body. He had his leathers on the bottom and just his colors on top. The leathers helped a little bit but not much. Mostly 2nd degree burns on his lower half, and no skin left on the upper. I've never been on a bike since!
