A guy I worked with rode his motorcycle to work when the weather allowed. His shift ended at 3AM. He was riding home one night and there were several drunk pedestrians walking along side the road goofing off as drunk folks do. The police said Kenny was traveling about 50 mph (the legal limit) when one of the pedestrians stepped out in front of him. Kenny had no time to react and struck the pedestrian. Kenny was launched over the handle bars landing on his head, snapping his neck (yes he had a helmet on but it could not help him). The pedestrian was injured but recovered. I can't remember if he was charged for anything or not. To anyone who rides, be careful. Sometimes, no matter how responsible you are, bad things can happen.

That was one of the reasons I quit riding on the street and went to racing on a track!! MUCH, MUCH safer!!

I still think when they make those sport type bikes they put in a idiot switch in them. Everybody that gets on one of them turns into a idiot.

I have rode for years and still ride, hundred's of miles a year, and it upsets me to no end that kids like this idiot does this kind of stuff. People don't see a kid on a bike they just see a stupid biker and that gives all the rest of us a bad name.
I try so hard to change that image to others but I'm, or people like me, never get the attention just the idiots like him.

Doing a wheelie at what I'd guess was close to 100 mph!

A half mile or so beyond he dropped down and cut across three lanes of traffic at high speed to take an exit on the right.

I've wondered several times if he's still walking around upright?
I was in Seattle last year from June to Sept. There was a guy killed on a motorcycle that the news reported as "known to be reckless". It could have been your guy. You don't think there could be more than one, do you?

Back in olden times when I was a patrol officer in California the code for a drunk driver was a 502, a 509, was driving with your head up where the sun doesn't shine. Haven't been around for awhile so don't know if the expression is still in use. I know the code numbers for drunk driving or DUI as is now called has changed but the last number is always a 2, as it is always referred to as a deuce. Nuf Sed !!!

The same principle holds true for gun ownership, you only hear about the crazies......

I don't know but it sure could have been the same idiot.

Some years ago when I was still trailer truckin', I was pulling a set of doubles on I-84 in CT. I was in the left lane passing another truck (only two lanes here) when the other driver hailed me over the CB warning me to "watch my right side". Looking in the right mirror I was to see some, moron driving his sport bike between the two trucks on the dotted line all the while tracing down the sides of my trailers with his left index finger. After completing this maneuver he pulls in front of me, turns in the seat and gives me a . If he has continued to operate in that manner I doubt that he's still around to tell the story.

Was headed into work one day in Detroit, East bound I-96 Express lanes.. Had just passed a semi when this class 1 IDIOT passes me like I'm standing still..

THEN he realizes he's at his exit. So he turns hard right, how he kept from rolling it I dont' know, (Had to be going 90 or faster) As he entered the exit ramp (Which is kind of like a skate board half-pipe with the embankments) he found a steel hauler doing about 35 on the Speed Limit 40 Ramp... We managed to loose speed, taking those embankments like a world class boarder, and keep it upright.

We were all wishing he'd rear ended that steel hauler.. I mean the Semi I had just passed must have missed him by less than 10 feet when he cut him off.

I'd have loved to testify at the hearing.

Had the 500, it was the fastest at the time. Surprised I lived thru it. Pretty dumb at 21.
