These pictures were taken by my bother yesterday.  We are flying northeast of Bozeman and the Bridger mountains.  Ronk, we flew up 16 Mile Creek.  Let me know if it looks the same.  I am flying with the left side of the helicopter.

Helo, for some reason unknown, I am terrified of helicopters, I don't know why.  Stunning view, maybe someday I will conquer my fears.

Have you been in one and had a bad experience, or maybe just heard too many stories?  They are actually quite safe.

druy?  That is a new one.  Bucky
 
I would love to fly on a wildfire, but I don't have enough time yet.  If you get to Montana, look me up, and I can arrange a ride.

I did a heli flight in Hawaii and it was not the most relaxing thing I ever did. Something about dropping straight down leaves me a tad uneasy. At least on a streetbike, I got a chance to slide if sh*^t happens unplanned.

you wreck on a bike your more than likely going to get hurt, wreck in a whop whop and youre probably dead.
the reason the police want motorcyclists to wear helmets is so when they wreck they can still have an open casket funeral, ive been on a lot of bike wrecks, and hitting a deer on a momocycle isnt pleasant, and the worst part is that the damn deer usually live to tell about it.

Actually, you are more likely to die in a motorcycle wreck than in a whilybird.

You'll probably hit the ground doing more than a 100 in that heli crash. Your point is a valid one though.

If a helicopter has an engine failure, you can actually put it on the ground without wrecking it.  If you do the autorotation correctly, you hit with little or no forward airspeed, and very basically no downward velocity. If you hit a wire or pole then you are more likely to get hurt.
