CT drivers? I'm not familiar with the term. Cage and Truck? California Troopers? Children and Teenagers?

I don't think those bad drivers are limited to Connecticut (CT) they seem to be everywhere unfortunately.

Mr. Wharton,

I think there are folks here that would buy clamshell fenders from you if you're in production with them. But if you're done, well, can't blame you, this is a tough crowd.

Concur with the CT drives and the full face helmet. I took a carpenter bee to the forehead wile riding my Ducati. Hit the Arai helmet and rocked my head back. A few weeks later, I nearly got a flight of turkeys in the face and chest. Amazing how dangerous the world is at speed.

Connecticut :BH:

I've driven all over the country, grew up 40 minutes from new York city and my in laws are still on long island. Connecticut (CT), Still takes the cake for oblivious [PooPoo] heads in my book.

I towed for a few years when we needed it at the old shop I used to manage.. Some of the accidents I saw were pretty incredible.

Girl got her hair stuck on her 4 runner steering wheel and managed to hit a firehydrant, 4 parked cars and a telephone pole before coming to a stop.

married Woman and her boyfriend coming home from a bar at 2 am, boyfriend pleasuring woman, woman not paying total attention - 75 mph into the back of parked tractor trailer 3 lanes away from where she was traveling. she was decapitated, boyfriend lived just long enough to give a statement.

Showed up to one where a man in a lifted wrangler drove up and down the side of a C5 corvette because the corvette driver would not let him merge.

my personal favorite, a woman who was trying to eat spaghetti with a fork and knife off a plate on the merit parkway. She also had three catering trays of said spaghetti in the back seat, on her way to a family party. when she hit the guardrail after she lost her fork, approximately 30 pounds of spaghetti and red sauce coated the inside of her dodge intrepid.

List continues.

I worked in Corrections for a while (level 4/5 maximum security inmates).. showers are often the safest place!

Now if you tinkle without simultaneously and continuously flushing the toilet.. you may catch a rolled up coffee cup lid in the neck.

:lol:

I'll probably have some more comments later, but I would like to start off with saying that at all times and circumstances I expect this nut house we call a web forum to be friendlier than a prison shower. This has been a core philosophy here for many years.

We also expect the language here to be free of swearing, cursing and politics etc. You guys all know this, and agreed to thee things when you became members.

I's in everyone's interest here for there to be more suppliers of parts for our cars and more builders. I think that Mr. Wharton has been less than artful in his approach here, but he is welcome to put up posts. Everyone is allowed to learn. It is clear to all of us that a person's abilities as a builder do not indicate their social skills. As a computer engineer for 40 years I see a lot of this. In the old days they just kept us in a back room with no windows behind a pile of machines. :rofl:

So please agree to differ and encourage each other when possible....

Or cycle fenders if there are options...
