I'm not sure what the OP's reason for posting this video were, but I think the fella with the camera is the one who was killed a few (months?) ago.

You may recall the recent topic of banning trucks on the Dragon and the related petition.

Again, no idea what the ST1300 had to do with anything.

I caught it last night and they looked like shit. Terrible lines, cutting corners. At least they wear full face helmets in that show.

To hide their faces in shame, perhaps?


Okay, I drop my bike a lot, but it's only when I'm standing still or walking it out of the shed, not while I'm riding it on a road!

I was just way under impressed with his lines, and was really surprised he made it through without getting clipped on the center line.


and we were due for a pic or two...

I can't believe you watched the whole thing ...i watched 2 minutes , jumped to the last 2 and posted it.


Sorry if the lack of carnage bummed you out.

How can you say this? The thing you just witnessed was the horrible snuffing out of pride.

I stand corrected! I was looking for some carnage. After watching that kid on the ST for some wreckage, I want to see it and see it quick!




Carry On!

I think he was clearly trying to pick up the PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) can, clearly evident at about the 41 second mark, which caused his loss of control

I.e. if you have heard experienced and "expert" riders proclaim that loud pipes save lives, you may equip your ride with loud pipes and presume they'll make you safe. If you have loud pipes to save you why would you have to drive with caution? Just wail away knowing your loud pipes will protect you - until someone lane changes into you because you weren't paying attention to their vehicle, they couldn't hear you because you were going fast and now you're dead.
