Totally agree what a prat , these sorts of people should have their licences taken off them and not allowed to ride again , don't get me wrong if he wants to do it on a track or private road that's up to him , but it's antics like this on public roads that get innocents injured and killed and loved ones looking after cabbages or grieving over graves, hope the Feds can track him down idiot

Ok, I am going to say it also, that is a selfish way to ride and you need to be an ******* to think it is okay to risk other peoples lives like that. Doesn't matter how good you are. But we are here on this forum to discuss the bike not to judge people we don't know. We all know there are so many people out there who ride that way and us talking here has almost no affect on anything. Judging someone is nothing more than satisfaction for our own ego's. So I think its better to discuss the bike as we should, instead of the rider.

So for the forums sake we can say yeah it accelerates hard , handles pretty **** well , stops brilliantly , but we knew that anyway , we don't need the video of a brain dead moron doing that , what relevance in day to day riding has any of that got to do with the bike to justify that behaviour !

r

or maybe he will be around for a while,

and maybe we don't need to call him names,

a lot of people have done these types of things and are still around,

a bit of ability, some luck, a heap of fun,
Maybe he will, who knows? Maybe he'll lose control and plough into a crowd of school kids, maybe one of those cars will decide to change lanes and really **** him up while leaving the driver with mental images of his death for the rest of their lives.

Riding like that isn't clever, all it shows is that he shouldn't be trusted with a bike. I don't care how much ability you've got or how much luck you've got, even Rossi has accidents The difference is that when his runs out someone's less likely to be killed. Added to which he'll no doubt be the first to bitch when he eventually gets nicked or someone gives him a right hander.

notworried, you would be right if this person had carried out those stunts in private, but he chose to do it apparently on a public road and worse, shared it on youtube for the entire world to see.

In such a case, it is entirely appropriate to judge his actions and condone his behaviour. Besides, public biking forums like this one, should not encourage discussions about illegal speeds and other unsafe behaviour on the bike, so I'm with Jerry on this one. Hope you will understand the issue at hand. :)

'Let he who is without sin'?

I'm not often found quoting from the bible, lol, but I remembered those words and feel they are, perhaps, appropriate.

I don't wheelie. I don't have the talent to do that with pedestrians around and I doubt many riders do. I could list plenty of things I feel other bikers shouldn't do but I suspect there are times when other riders look at me with disapproval

I think there is a problem with what my friend calls 'Kodak courage'. It's easy to strap on a camera and try to become a stunt hero for YouTube. I really hate watching the crash videos involving bikes but I still ride one every day

I think what I'm trying to say is:
We've all chosen a bike that encourages us to do bad things....
I don't wheelie and I seldom undertake but I do break the speed limit, I corner faster than I should (nobody should trust British road surfaces!) and sometimes I ride too fast in traffic!

There, I've confessed Lol. I feel much better
