Once again if you want to use a seatbelt in a car it should be your choice and if you want to ride a dangerous motorcycle that should be your choice and whatever happens just happens.

Simple, people on here have learned that if someone makes an inappropiate comment , it can be taken off. All it takes is 3 “report comment” to be gone. So the other people on this blog can police it themselves. Hey Iggy ” EXECUTIVE” what is the color of the sky in your world
