    Wow. I thought he was an idiot before that video. What the heck was he trying to do anyway?

    I've never watched that show before because the commercials for it made it look like your run-of-the-mill "reality" tv.

    Now I see that my preconception was spot on. Pick up the damn bike first, then treat your boo-boo.

    Let that be a lesson to anyone who wears T shirts when they ride. You don't have to be going very fast to get dinged up.

    Sweat wipes up a lot faster than skin re-grows.

    Man he learned real quick not to dump the clutch on a literbike. If we was going about 20-30mph faster he would have had a nice hi-side to go with that.

    "I revved it up like my other bikes"

    There is your problem. If he is a harley rider that R1 makes about as much power at 3k rpm as most as his other bikes do banging off the rev limter.

    Wow...glad he didn't hit his head.

    If he ever asks to borrow your bike, do what the themesong says, and walk away.

    Can't see the vid here at work, but I'm guessing it's the Pinks guy dumping the Gixxer?

    Hope you didn't put any money on it, it is clearly a gixxer 1k, look at the exhaust, a new R1 has an undertail exhaust, or the olders have the standard side mount. The gixxer has the low slung triangular muffler that he was riding.

    Bah all those new fangled crotch rockets look the same. Give me a CB-175. Now that is a hard core machine! :supergrin:

    Actually I was one saying it was an R1. I just glanced at the vid and the red paint scheme screamed R1 to me (Gixxers are supposed to be BLUE dammit! ;) ).

    Either way he needs to stay the hell away from literbikes...... or bikes in general.

    So much for this macho man. I found taking off his shirt an interesting response to making a total fool of himself!

    I have zero problem with people having fun with cycles in safe places but I cannot understand when they wear no protection. I see it all the time here we are a state that requires bicycle helmets but not motorcycle helmets. I always wear one. Hell I have broken one and know the value they bring to the party.

    There might have been rubber pebbles there at the area where the drag strip starts, but he grabbed a handful of throttle at precisely the wrong time and too much. The bike acted completely predictably and tossed his arse!

    I was told by some auxiliary members of the local townships finest that my 1991 fj1200A is a crotch rocket. So figure a six hundred pound air cooled bike is a crotch rocket. it has a partial front fairing right. duh!

    There is an inverse relationship between power and brains

    I just imbrace it. Yes, it is a rocket (i.e. fast) and my crotch does happen to be on it. I would rather have a "crotch rocket" then something that is ACTUALLY called a Fatboy. Gee which sounds like more fun?
