No Idea How To Ride, But Felt Confident in My Natural Abilities.

"Bought a brand new motorcycle after hitting my quarter life crisis, no idea how to ride, but felt confident in my natural abilities. Placed an insurance policy on it 30 minutes prior to the events in the video. Called insurance company back and shocked them when I asked to make a claim... "

The only time a leader should use the word "I" is in the sentence "I have to shit"

My brother did this, helped me learn the lesson vicariously. '74 Honda 100 we had just pulled out of the barn and cleaned up and got running, and he throttles on, loses his balance, and accelerates into a Rhododendron.
