Seems like he froze going into the turn. It was mild compared to what we've seen here, but there was much discussion...
It's a classic.

Yes! Yes!! A classic indeed.

Then a bunch of accountants-dressed-as-pirates show up.

"Yeah, go, get outta here..."


There are a lot of good vids of motorbike crashes at the page, many of them from Deal's. The comments on this video are great...

I think that's a re-run, but a pretty cool picture IMO.

I don't think I could take my dog on the bike. Fine if you do, but one mistake could put the little guy on the pavement. Had a dog jump out of the car once, that was bad enough.

It is clearly staged for Killboy.. but still a funny pic.
