The pill that could cure you of motorcycling

You better hope nobody from the EU reads this, but there's a pill that some experts think could 'cure' you of motorcycling.

hehe, love it! hands up for going round spiking anti-bike groups with toxo?!

first stop, those cyclists in london who seem worried about bikers in bus lanes. maybe it's because we're so much bigger and heavier than buses...

lol

I knew about toxoplasmosis before this and how the parasite can make humans more reckless/risky as well as rats but i never put with biking. I doubt the pill would be much use to harley riders or slower riders though...

a cure for biking?

A pill to cure you from riding bikes? what about a pill to cure you from doing anything thats potentionally dangerous rock climbing, skying,mountainbike riding, etc  or eating any food that is likely to give you heart disease and anything that people enjoy! Come to think of it stop people getting out of bed because people have broken their leg and even died getting out of bed!

This drug isn't new !

This drug isn't new !

Co-trimoxazole­ has been around for years is used to treat quite a lot of general infections, such as urinary tract infections. So this drug is nothing new, it's just that Toxoplasmosis is susectable to the drug.

Just a load of old pee !

Who writes this dribble....... lol .....   :)

France

I'm not surprised to read about the higher road deaths in France. We went to Le Mans GP there a couple of weeks ago, and I was very very "surprised" of what the French riders choose to wear on the bike and how they ride. It seems they wear whatever piece of clothes they stumble upon on their way from their bed to the front door, and in many cases it wasn't much. Certainly no thought goes in to it. Also, in relation to Supermario's post about soap and French and stuff. Ironically, Cantona (being French) was chosen to advertise some 48 hour antiperspirant on the telly. There you are, motorcycles and hygiene, all in one place.
