No wonder the Dragon attracts such an odd mix. Some people just can't resist running TOWARDS the paparazzi screaming "look at me, look at me".

I came across it in a Sci Fi book, can't recollect the title or author though. Quite a good read. Could be a million miles from the truth.....

Somewhere his bio states that he took it from a song by The Offspring: 'Killboy powerhead'

Here are a couple of non-fails

I certainly admire these riders' spirit and their will to keep on riding





Here's hoping this works - I'm having to link from Killboy's Facebook page.

Please don't tell my GF.

(Speaking of which, every time the T-Mobile commercial comes on the GF asks if I'd be okay if she got a bike and leathers like that. Ummm.... yeah???)

Perhaps he uses his good leg but hey, that's just a WAG.

I'm more curious how he puts his kickstand down. Even mounted to the wrong side, it's got to be an impressive feat. (or is that foot? Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

That's what I was thinking, RB. It certainly adds another challenge to the ride, but this guy seems to be capable.

Cool commercial , except these leathers (if in fact they are "leathers") would offer absolutely no protection...in a spill or against the elements. I bet they are great for the green screen though
