Oh, Moose, FWIW having been an anesthesiologist in level 1 and 2 trauma centers for most of my career, I can say when a biker crashes, the road rash is usually the LEAST of their worries, in many cases this is true even with a helmet!!!!!

Why do you think we in the medical field call them 'Donorcycles'???

Young, previously heathy brain dead people are your best source for organs for the needy, and motorcycles help supply a huge percentage of those organs. Not being judgmental here, just the facts.
I've been a Firefighter for almost 27 years so I know where your coming from!
