re: Chris Berman's eyes (NSFW Pic on Pg. 2) - StormTiger
I thought Berman was pretty awesome in the early 90s, problem is, it's 2014 now......

re: Was last night a wasted 4 quarters of development for our young offense? - StormTiger
I think there is a lot of be said for going through the "real game" routine - getting the kids used to running out on the field, playing in front of so many people, etc. So I don't think it was wasted. That being said, I think the first half next week vs Miss St and their QB will be a huge wake up c...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
not to rehash this thread, but drove it today and it took me 7-8 seconds driving at 50mph, from the bottom of the hill to get to the top where you lose site over it. ...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
I drove down that road again this morning, and I can definitely say that if that motorcycle overtook another car around the top of the little hill in the road, the car would have had very little time to have seen him travelling at close to 100mph. I still think the car could have done more, but...

[quote]Especially in a lane that clearly says "slow".[/quote] that is the point, this particular road that the car is turning onto is the only road going north from there this is build for large trucks (to deliver goods to one of the largest turkey factories in the UK). So there are a lot of HGVs...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
[quote]Dude was going 97MPH. On a motorcycle. On a highway. [/quote] That intersection is well known for having big 18 wheelers turn into it (and out of it) at all times of day. If you are going to ride a bike at speed, you need to know where those "dangerous" places are, and not go at 97mph arou...

[quote]I meant is my interpretation close to what actually exists. But thanks for the insight. [/quote] looking westbound (the line of sight of the car) has the slight grade, looking eastbound (the bikers view) is flat... sorry I misread what you posted, ha. ...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
[quote]To me, it looks like there is a slight grade in the direction the car was coming from, but fairly flat going in the direction the biker came from. Is that close?[/quote] it's not super close, but as I said, it's probably over cautious, but at night, I would not make that turn if I saw head...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
[quote]Is there a reason the car would have to pull forward in the left lane before completing his turn at that intersection? It looks like he turned before the intersection and began to turn back up the road in the biker's lane before completing his right turn. [/quote] Not that I can tell. ...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
it's not going to be completely accurate but I can "eyeball" at what point the cars appear on the hill and drive to that point on the road, then tell you the distance. ...

re: Helmet Cam Catches Moment Car Turns In Front of Motorcycle Doing 97 MPH - StormTiger
I'm the guy that drives the road daily, it's definitely not flat, on the way home from work tomorrow I will measure the distance of the visibility, but I can tell you even at night, if I see car lights appear "on top of the hill" I wait until they go by before turning off the road. ...

[quote]can you provide any further insight? speed limit? bio of the driver who killed the biker?[/quote] Speed limit is 60mph,(he was going 97) and there is a slight hill which makes it difficult to see cars more than a few hundred yards ahead. There are often large 18 wheelers turning off that r...
