That guy was riding like a fool. he wipped right out on the road changed lanes and never head checked. I guess he thought everybody else would look out and keep him safe. I feel as though you can never trust anybody on the road and you should never assume the lane is clear.

Oh I see, that makes it ok for someone to brag about their reckless riding on the internet, same as it's ok for wankers to post video's of their 189mph rides on urban dual carriageways on YouTube.

Its not a good thing to do its not smart and not much of a show of skills. Your so fast try a track try your skills with some of the best and fast bikes. But the noobies dont after they scrape a friend or two off the road they will stop. Today some fool ran his bike up a two lain road in the hills not far from my home a road I ride all the time nice and twisty. Lost it right in frunt of a blind right turn hit the clift on the right and went flying off the road to the left. The cops had to pull what was left oh him and his bike out of the trees. At that speed he would have kill any one in the left had another rider, a van full of kids, or me.
Had to be a new rider to mess up like that dint make the turn or by the look even try.

Ride safe others seem not to.

You really have no idea do you? Go buy yourself something like a TL1000 or an early R1, then you can come and lecture me about how to ride. I didn't say I ride like a Grandma, just don't openly brag about it on the internet.

Anyway, do you even ride? I did ask in this thread what bike you had and you still haven't answered. Come on, tell us a bit about your beast of a ride and let's see a pic of you sitting on it, holding a recent copy of any national newspaper, clearly showing the headline and title of the publication as proof of date taken. I'll eat one of our cats if you can do that and maybe even consider taking you seriously. Otherwise, go and troll somewhere else.

Sorry people but I have the same problem with muppets working for bike mags, who mouth off about road testing the latest litre superbike on already popular biking roads and then print that they had X mph up Y section of road. Result? Traffic cops, born-again wannabe's, chav's on 125's, etc, all over that road for the next 3 months. Yes, you read it right, traffic cops can read!

It's not that the mags or people like Albert Crutcher are doing anything that everyone else isn't already doing, it's the unwanted attention that really pisses everyone off. Biking is one of the last proper adrenaline buzzes left that the Health & Safety nazi's haven't yet got round to ticking off the "Banned" box on their clipboards. Don't give them any more ammunition than they've already got, that's all I'm saying.
