Hey guys. 
Was on here as BlueLine but returned to work and got busy with work and life in general and my forum activity of all sorts declined. I went back to work in October of 2013 after getting run over by an old man while on my motorcycle and being unable to work for 16 months. My buddy Lance came and gave my bed ridden butt a double edge shave and I was hooked. It was a hobby I could do from my hospital bed and I am still "classic shaving". Things have changed some. Shave-A-Buck is apparently no more and I have tried enough blades to know what I do and don't like. Hope to learn some new things. Will be retiring from law enforcement after 25 years and doing something else for a living. My permanent injuries make policing too tough in light of my age. Glad to be back on the forum.

Alan

Alan,

Sorry to hear about your motorcycle accident. I reside in Southern California and have sold off my remaining motorcycles as I made the decision to no longer ride (riding since my early teens) with texting becoming even worse. Welcome back to the forum, shaving is where it's at!

I sold mine off when my little girl was born. Young girl was texting and waiting to merge onto the highway I was on and she was looking down at what I assume was a cellphone and she pulled out on front of me. I locked down the brakes and began to fishtail a little bit and just as I was about to bail the bike came out of the fishtail. I caught the girl at the next red light and gave her a piece of my mind,took the bike home and put them up for sale..Week later a good friend was killed when a couple pulled out in front of my buddy, it killed all 3, I was heading to work when it happened, I saw the wreck before the police got there but thankfully after the collision.

This 'old man' - was he jogging when he ran you over or rollerblading? Lots of 'old men' on this forum and it's a terminal condition except for me and Peter Pan. Better to describe him as  impaired by physical or mental frailty. Welcome back.

Let me expound as I am 49  years old myself. Old man being defined as a male driver over 70 years of age whose visual and cognitive abilities were impaired to the point he couldn't see me and my motorcycle despite my wearing a new safety yellow jacket and my bike having two daytime running lights. It's all good though. I got on with life. Kinda pisses me off though as I slowly discover that my injuries I received negatively affect me later on and I didn't realize it and no one told me! Example: two collapsed lungs 3years ago will detrimentally affect your bodies ability to cool itself later in life and this summer brought this to a point.
But hey, I'm alive to see my girls grow up.

Same age people pulled out in front of my buddy. People said they didn't even look but you know how witnesses are.
