"The Big Thouw" sighting???

Hey Rusty,
Was that you(and one other bike)headed East on the road between Frankenmuth and Vassar on Sunday?(11:00+/-?) I thought I recognized your blue headlight cover. We where headed the opposite way, you had just passed a car. There where 4 of us 2 FJ's, an RT, and a BMW K1200R. The 2 FJ's and the 1200R road with you and E and a few others through the thumb about a month(?) ago. I was the bald guy on the FJ.

Last night a kid that hangs out with alot of the sportbike guys in town, i think he was 18, and parents would not let him get a bike yet. So frome time to time he would ride a friends bike a little. well last night he got on his friends bike, and was riding back and forth in the mall parking lot, he tried to do a wheelie, and crashed. When he went down, he hit a curb, no helmet.
I was in town eating, when i got the call, i went to the E.R. about 5 min after i got there, they said he did not make it.

I ALWAYS wear a helmet(ATGATT) when riding, but I DO take it off at gas stops, etc.
Thanks for your concern

Sorry, but the "bald guy" comment made me think otherwise. I'm thinking, "How would someone know you're bald, unless you're not wearing a helmet?"

Your sig line kind of backed up my theory, but I realise now that you were being sarcastic.
