    Thankfully the rider was hurt. May get in trouble but I'd rather be in trouble than dead stemming from an incident like this. Train, car, truck, gotta be careful out there.

    "dead stemming" , as in a dead brain stem? As in dumb & clueless? Admiral might have just created a new phase for the Urban Dictionary.

    It's amazing how a missing comma can change a meaning or create a new one!

    I am glad he wasn't hurt. Poor motorcycle though. If trains are traveling that fast and quiet train tracks are not the place to play. I knew someone that use to ride the rails on a motorcycle. He said it was really bumpy until the timing kept you on top of the cross ties then it smoothed out. That is my planned escape route in case of unavoidable catastrophe. Trains do not run at those times. The freeways were so clogged the one hurricane evacuation that people were trapped on the freeway for days and never made it out of town.

    Well he jumped clear, as for the bike, hell it'll buff out with a little polishing compound.
    Maybe some touch up paint, good to go.
