My opinion is there is all kinds of fail in this picture. The 990 Baja is barely touching his tennis shoes on the ground.
Rider 2 in addition to being a tool ( he was in TJ's in Austin loudly telling anyone in the nearby area who he knew) was wearing dress shoes with Jeans, a good helmet and jacket, but he had his BBD girlfriend on the back in a skimpy T shirt jeans and tennis shoes. the munchkin on the Baja asked if I wanted to take his "ride" for spin.
You set this thread up with a one sentence reply...and yet you set it up with a two-fer question. WTF???

Hell, how much safer can you be then being surrounded by a bunch of soft mattresses to crash on?

I would like to know what kind of bike that is? My DR650 Suzuki will only haul 6 beds and the shocks are bottomed out.

Four sentences actually.


A fail from the get-go.

His helmet is on the handlebar, shame on him! I don't recognize the four-stroke step-through scooter. It might be Japanese or Chinese. What a rider! I'd like to see him take on the GS's at BMW Motorrad Days in the Household Moving competition. Touratech, take note.

He is actually testing the new BMW "PPV" system - passive protection and visibility. It is designed to protect both passenger and the expensive plastic on the new bikes, and to be seen by texting SUV drivers. The final unit will be day-glo yellow. The part over the driver is designed to break away under heaving braking and fall in front of the bike, forming a cushioned barrier between the bike and the left-turning SUV.
