Isn't this the same stupid crap as the people that live too close to power lines get cancer, cell phones cause cancer, blah, blah, blabbity, blah??????
Frankly, I'm pretty sure the lab rats they use for cancer studies must cause cancer.....
Hell, I'm left-handed, ride a motorcycle, worked in a sign shop for a couple of years welding aluminum and spraying paint with minimal protective gear, and I come from Southern stock predisposed to keeling over from heart attacks at an early age from eating fried food. The surgeon general should just turn up at my house and pop a cap in my ass now!!!!
I googled this book and pretty universally people are deriding this authors theories (and from all accounts they are ONLY theories) as ridiculous. I'd love to know what manufacturer is building electrical systems that generate enough juice to actually put me at risk. Most of my old bikes barely make enough juice to run the engine and headlight at the same time!
They have his photo on one of the boards I checked and he looks like a real leather and doo-rag poser. Plus he pictures a Harley in most of the info I've found about him. Maybe I'm wrong but isn't the flywheel/rotor/stator assembly way the fuck down by your ankle on most HD's? How powerful is the HD ignition these day anyway? Are they buying charging system components from Chernobyl????
The sad thing is this douche will probably get Federal funding for "studying the issue" if he sticks to his story. Hmmm - Federal funding to ride motorcycles... Maybe he's not such a douche after all!
As I was reading that webpage I kept thinking to myself...ok, where's the punch line, where's the punch line, here it comes...nope....ok here it comes now...nope. And then realized someone was serious.
What's up with the "integrity" password weirdness.... when I got a security warning when I hit the button I thought...nah, don't need to see it that bad.
I was hoping maybe for some gag that would pop up on the sreen and scare me...but didn't want to risk it.
Yeah, I was waiting for the punchline too. I can't figure if the guy is taking himself seriously, or if he's just some numbskull hoping the feds will hand him a grant so he can "study" this further. Would a person who really believed motorcycles, or anything else for that matter, caused cancer, then pose for a photo sitting on the damn thing?

This sounds like something some guy was trying to sell JAM614 at a VRRA round this summer. It improved the mileage of the tow vehicle, cleaned the cabin air, made us a sandwich, etc...
Jeff- what were those details again???
ATTENDING PUBLIC EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION CAUSES:
CANCER, OBESITY, HOMOSEXUALITY, BAD BREATH, SMELLY FEET ETC. ETC. ETC.
These studies really piss me off, I mean seriously, if you were to ask any individual that has any of the above conditions and then ask them if they attended a public scool you could then draw the conclusion, based on thousands of people filling out a questionairre that asks if they went to school, that school is responsible for all of the above and more.
May be an extreme statement on my part, but when it comes down to it, not any more extreme than some stuff published, and it didn't cost tax payer (you and me) thousand or millions in grants to figure it out!
