Glad dear mother is getting ticketed. She is the one that made it possible for this person to ride this way. Down where I live we call these guys that ride this way organ doners.

A few years ago one of my friends had a neighbor just like that. He wound up under a semi. A witness said he was doing well over 60mph when he hit the semi. No he was not an organ doner. He was 16 years old and his parents knew how he rode that thing. Go figure!

Stupid is as stupid does!
Someone phoned the police with a tip. Police matched the scratches visible on the u tube video with the seized bike and found a camera mount on the gas tank. The bike is seized and is gonna be sold under the proceeds of crime. Sadly zippee will probably ride again.

My stepdad owns a fitness studio along I-45 in The Woodlands, TX. One night about 3 am he gets a call from his alarm company and the local fire dept within a span of 30 seconds. There has been a serious traffic accident and they need him there ASAP.

What he finds is part of a car sticking out of the roof of the 1 story converted house. The driver is deceased and decapitated and a small fire has been put out. Later, the police tell him that the car was traveling south at a high rate of speed, hit something, became airborne and crossed over the 3 lane frontage road and landed 50 feet from the street -- almost 100 from the highway.

During the investigation, they find a cellphone video on the young man's Facebook page where he shows his speedometer at 126 mph. AND... his father is a law enforcement bigwig in that area. I can only guess that Daddy and the Good Ole Boy Texas justice system let this boy think he could get away with anything.

It was over 6 months before the gym was able to reopen at that location. Darwin's law prevailed, but at what cost?

Is the top of the 5th wheel sliced off by something? That would explain the intact no trucks and no RVs signs behind the crash site.

The only thing that rivals the stupidity of the hot crotch rockets are the goofballs that think "loud pipes save lives".

Organ donors aplenty...

Yes, there's a large steel crossbar between two uprights. Black with bright yellow striping...

What is even more stupid is he recorded it and posted it "Look ma, Look ma, NO BRAINS!"

True story... Some years ago Michigan State Police got many calls about a bunch of bikers on I-696 in Oakland County doing wheel stands on the freeway and otherwise driving with head up exhaust pipe (Think about it).

Well, a few things turned out: One, they established a pattern, Same place, Same time, Every day. Two, as we later found, they were practicing for a "money run" hoping to get on TV on one of those America's stupidest idiots tv shows (Thank you Sgt for the generic program name).

Well, they were making the money run, With a couple in a chevy chase car filming them when suddenly the road ahead got kind of blue, red and maze (Gold)

The Royal blue of the Michigan State Police patrol car.
The Red of the overhead lights on said car
The Maze of the State shield on the door.

One of 'em managed to get past the troopers.. But remember the film crew..

We got the film, and from it we got the runner.

They were also successful in getting on TV, however not the show they were aiming for.

The got on Court TV.. You know, the TV in the court room used for video arraignment.

Nice of them to provide FILMED evidence for his honor the Judge.

Second true story. I got to see the raw video tape (And the broadcast version)

Man breaks into a garage and takes off with the owner's Harley, Nice bike.

Well, he's spotted, in, as I recall TROY, Michigan.. He stops at a red light and local police pull up on the cross street, He runs the light, rams the scout car with his bike, and takes off (This at very low speed) Michigan State Police patrol car catches up with him and he rams her (Female trooper) this time doing about 45mph. At this speed he's unable to control the bike.

When the ambulance arrived the troopers (She and her back up) were already doing first aid.

One of the TV stations had a 'eye in the sky" filming (and on the raw tape commenting) on the biker and his appearant intellegence (Not very good I can tell you).

Some folks... Make their own justice.

The loud pipes saves lives schtick kills me...if this was the case, every japanese owned bikerider would be dead. Why don't Honda Goldwing's have loud pipes?

It's all an ego thing. Goes with the look. Just my opinion.

As to the Video? The Ultimate in stupidity!!!
