There is a rolling road block by a GSA running the speed limit.

Yeah they look a bit intense. But there is a simple joy in winding out a bike that will barely do 35 down hill with a tail wind.
The Ruckus also comes with a superpower. Invisibility. You think cars don't see you on your gleaming chrome Harley? Try cruising around on a scooter sometime.

If he was riding in the lane and two people passed him then there must have been room for three bikes there somewhere - one does not get RUN off the road from behind unless you actually get run into. Sounds like two sumos came up and passed one at a time at different areas of the lane and then the first rider freaked out and drove into the ditch.

Conjecture on all parts - if there's no video then it's just a witch hunt against innocent but superior sumo riders!

It has the feel of being staged. However, even if not, the truck could have been put in reverse by a startled and scared driver.

I searched the forum where that picture was linked from, and found this: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/bmw-r...ml#post1522537

[edit] More: http://forums.pelicanparts.com/bmw-r...who-stole.html

Apparently the original story is from here, which is now a dead link: http://www.swmosportbikes.com/forums...s=&postid=7310

That's the thing, a 500 pound bike doing 60 MPH wouldn't be able to push that truck back that far. Not IMHO anyhow, and not with the light damage to the front of the bike.
