How bad was Gary Busey's motorcycle accident?
On December 4, 1988, Busey was severely injured in a motorcycle accident in which he was not wearing a helmet. His skull was fractured, and he suffered permanent brain damage.

“About 25 years ago, I had an accident on a Harley-Davidson," he said. "I went off the bike without a helmet, hit my head into a [curb], split my skull, passed away after brain surgery and went to the other side – the spiritual realm where I got information.

In the 40+ years I've been driving, I can count the number of times on one hand where I have seen a sport bike on the road, and its rider was not riding it in a totally unsafe manner. No exaggeration.

Most of these bikes are owned by young guys who have an attitude, have something to prove, are dumber than a box of hammers or a combination of the three. Put that together with a powerful bike and the law of averages catches up with you. This one was stolen, so he's a dumbass.

The upside of this is that there is one less dangerous shithead out on the roads. I just hope the people in the car were ok.

Busey wasn't very tightly wrapped before the accident either.

I think I agree with you, but I don't get the first sentence

Cool. Let’s jack up insurance rates for people who live unhealthy lifestyles too while we’re at it. Drink more than two beers a day? Raise them ya sot. Oh you’re outside the recommended height/weight chart? Raise them fatty. BMI too high? Raise them. You’re a speeder? $5.00/MPH over the posted limit. What we need are more laws governing our lives. We must remain safe.
