He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Un-freakin believable!!!! . Damn him, he knows better than that!. I have a feeling you are correct about him being in trouble especially since the woman was not charged. She's probably going to take him to the cleaners with a major lawsuit!

Everyone obviously wishes Ben a full and speedy recovery, but if he did not have a license his arrogance in continuing to operate a top of the line crotch rocket is inexcusable.

Failing to be licensed before you put yourself on the road and put others in harm's way is blindingly stupid - this situation appears to meet the definition of the cliche "accident waiting to happen."

I know that Ben is an adult (at least physically) but while the Steelers cannot be expected to monitor Ben as you would an insanely wealthy teenager, I am surprised his agent did not take the time to check off such matters on the do list as "get motorcycle license" if he in fact was unlicensed. I say that not just for Ben's physical well being but becuase if he operated the motorcycle without a license while engaging in other crimes (such as being behind the wheel the night the "Drink Like A Champion" photos were taken?) he is begging for a mega-million lawsuit if he ever injures someone else.

I have no words to discribe how irritated I am at him if this is true. Especially after his agent said he had a liscence last year and insisted he was a safe responsible driver.

Another thing to think about.... was he licensed to operate motorcycles in Ohio? If so, isn't that license good across state lines? Is he a resident of Ohio anywhere also? The car he hit was driven by a lady who lives here with a Maine license plate. Same type of thing.

Dunno, just food for thought.

According to the no helmet law in Pennsylvania, a motorcyclist MUST have a valid motorcycle license (not a permit) and be an experienced rider in order to have the "privilege" of riding helmetless. If it's true that Ben didn't have a valid motorcycle license, he broke the law by not wearing a helmet. (sigh)

LOL it's not a big deal, gesh, it expired what 10 days ago. The whole motorcycle permit to license thing isn't a huge thing guys .... if its true he'll get fined, nothing more.

I'm guessing the BR's beloved Harley and other bikes are going to get VERY dusty between now and the end of his playing career, which hopefully is many years away.

Ben,.......here's your mandatory new car for the rest of your football career. It's a 2006 Mack Truck. It come's complete with a fully licensed driver and a bed in the back for you to lay down on while you are driven place to place. This way only a tank could hurt you if you are hit in an accident. Get well soon buddy.

BuFu
