The way he rides? Not surprised, just a matter of time.

I hope he had fun weaving in and out of traffic and speeding in a straight; Shows how bad he really wants that "Group Ride" trophy at the end of the group ride......

Yeah, I enjoyed the "Hey, pain hurts - who knew?!?" sounds and the bikes he'd just passed zooming away in the background.

Earlier in the video he also performs Stupid Squid Act #1 - passing someone IN THEIR LANE at a zillion miles an hour. Pet peeve - just because I'm on one side of the lane right now doesn't mean I'll still be there when you decide to pass!

Yeah, that would have set my teeth on edge......of course karma's revenge was near instant in this case, so all is well.

Trust me, you do not want that. My buttocks are extremely pale and unsightly, especially in moonlight.

Yes! What an aggravation!

I'm glad you said that because, even though I haven't been directely fucked up as a result of that circumstance, it is still a terrible practice. I know there are a lot of us who like to wander the entire lane (as we are allowed) and it is bullshit to cut into my lane just because I happen to be occupying the right hand side, on a small vehicle. Good call!

Accelerated too fast on a straight to make the light corner.. almost what happend to me...... then I learned.

Probably a classic example for having a bike too powerful for you to handle!

No. He wasn't accelerating hard before the crash. He was just going too fast. Well, going too fast considering he made almost no attempt to make the bike turn.

That crash could have been accomplished on any bike from a Ninja 250 to a Hayabusa to a Gold Wing.
