re: New Netflix docu-series "Making a Murderer" (Spoilers) - KG6
[quote]I don't get how this keeps coming up. Its not too hard to understand. It's not a simple thing to crush a car. You have to drain the fluids, remove the tires, the battery and the fuel tank (at a minimum). If you don't, they could explode and it would destroy the machine. It also has to be plac...

re: Dave Mirra dead from suicide - KG6
Absolutely crazy. Had actually heard of him again recently. He's been competing in Iron man races. Seemed like he still had a lot going for him. Crazy what a person's head can do to them. RIP and prayers to his wife and kids. ...

re: 5 Things Cyclists Do You Didn’t Know Are Perfectly Legal - KG6
Those sound like shitty cyclists. I would never pass up a car at a stop sign and blow through it while they are stopped. I may roll through a stop sign (I'm not unclipping and stopping completely at a 4 way stop with no other cars around), but so do most cars. I slow down, make sure I have the ri...

re: 5 Things Cyclists Do You Didn’t Know Are Perfectly Legal - KG6
And that video is why I side with cyclist in these argument most of the time. That inbred hick didn't have to do anything to avoid that guy other than move over. Didn't even look like he had to slow down. I typically think people extremely over exaggerate their issues because of their annoyance a...

[quote]Yes, there are minimum limits. They are usually around 15 under. Below that, you're considered to be a hazard[/quote] Not saying it's not true, as I don't know for a fact. But I'd have to see this one to believe it. I know it's legal for tractors to ride on the road and they can't nearly...

re: 5 Things Cyclists Do You Didn’t Know Are Perfectly Legal - KG6
What if a tree fell across the road, what if a little old lady had a stall and was standing in the middle of the road. Sounds like the speed limit is too fast for that area (again may be a bad decision to ride there 100%). But just because a road has a speed limit, doesn't mean it's unsafe to ride...

re: 5 Things Cyclists Do You Didn’t Know Are Perfectly Legal - KG6
I lived in Lake Beau Pre. I hated those cyclists that would ride by campus. I've been hit by a car (not on a bike) and am very cautious about where I ride. I will not ride where it's busy at all. That said, I think people very much underestimate what a cyclist is actually riding. That levee isn...
