2002may03. My friend has sent corrections to the tale of the dangerous motorcycle people.
They werent exactly straddling the bikes that is, one foot on each side of the bike they hopped off the bike, standing to the left side of it. They were waterskiing alongside the bike, both feet on the freeway, no rocket in their crotch. You could smell the burning rubber of their shoe soles for at least two exits ...
And the helmets! Shiny black helmets with chrome shark fins popping through the top.
