This is in response to a post titled The "FACES OF PITBULL ATTACKS" which was actually a graphic response to an earlier post titled "Pit Bull Lovers" in which the uploader is trying to convince everyone that every single pit bull dog on the face of Earth is vicious and will kill innocent men, women and children on site. I noticed on that uploaders channel that he has several videos relating to his passion for motorcycles, including several in which he has modified to suit his needs and appeal. Since this uploader was kind enough to provide me information in regards to how dangerous and vicious my pit bull is, I thought I would enlighten him as to how dangerous motorcycles are.
No matter how careful one is with a motorcycle, you will eventually be killed or severely injured on one. No matter if it is a dirtbike like the kind I usually ride, but more importantly, and by far more dangerous, are the streetbike version the other poster apparently prefers. Motorcycles, especially streetbikes, are inherently dangerous and should be banned from public roadways. It doesn't matter how careful one is, or how well maintained the bike is, you will eventually die, be permanently dismembered, disfigured, paralyzed, or worse.
Because of this, I think all motorcycle should be banned. If it happened to these people, it could happen to anyone else riding a motorcycle, or in fact, anyone else that is in a car that is on the same road with these death machines. They are evil and need to be banned!!!
Here are some pictures providing proof of these and they are VERY GRAPHIC. Viewer discretion is advised!!!!!!!!!!
While I can't compete with the Christian website the other poster provided with their massive amounts of information on how every pit bull on planet Earth is going to kill someone or something before it dies, I was able to find plenty of articles to back up my assertion that all motorcycles are going to kill or maim a human being during its lifecycle and should be banned. Here is one such article from a reputable media outlet and consumer foundation:

New study shows motorcycle deaths are not declining
May 23, 2012 3:00 PM
As Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month rolls toward Memorial Day weekend, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) has released a sobering report that finds no progress was made in reducing motorcyclist deaths in 2011. Motorcycle deaths remained at about 4,500 last year, based on preliminary data from 50 states and the District of Columbia. There are numerous factors at play, but not all the news is bad.
The GHSA study found that when comparing data from the first nine months of 2010 to the same period in 2011, 23 states saw a decrease in motorcycle fatalities. Notably, Connecticut saw deaths drop by 37 percent, North Carolina declined by 21 percent, and New York saw its numbers fall 16 percent. A combination of helmet laws, safety education, and law enforcement are cited as key factors in reducing deaths.
However, there are efforts that are undermining motorcycle safety. For instance, some states have rescinded helmet laws, or have legislation pending to do so. (Currently, only 19 states have universal helmet laws.) And there are more motorcyclists hitting the road, in part due to the pursuit of lower commuting costs. The industry has seen sales increase in some segments this year; Harley-Davidson in particular just posted strong sales. These insights point to new, less-experienced riders hitting the road.
A total of 26 states, plus the District of Columbia, saw an increase in fatalities.
To change this trend, the GHSA recommends that states take the following actions:
- Increase helmet use.
- Reduce alcohol impairment.
- Reduce speeding.
- Provide motorcycle training.
- Encourage drivers to share the road.
Naturally, there is much that individual riders can do to help stay safe. It starts with attending a thorough motorcycle rider training course, such as those widely offered by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. If you currently ride, but haven't attended such a course for years, there are refresher courses designed specifically for experienced riders that can help sharpen skills.
The right protective gear can make a real difference. I've heard several riders recently advise, "Dress for a crash, not fashion." Without the benefit of a car's steel cage, motorcyclists must depend on the riding gear as the only source of accident protection. The right gear includes a DOT-approved helmet (ideally full faced), leather or other reinforced jacket, non-slip boots, and gloves.
Visibility is also important. Wear brightly colored, reflective clothing and helmet, always have your lights on, use your directional signals, and avoid cars' blind spots. When shopping for a bike, consider a colorful one. Further, we encourage choosing one that has antilock brakes.
Motorcycling can be a great escape, but the safety disadvantage is inherent. Hopefully through smart laws and proactive riders, we'll see these grim figures trend downward in the future.
