Well, you're looking for comments.
My best friend bought a crotch rocket back in '02.
In '03, on Superbowl Sunday I got a call from a coworker that he had a head-on with a Van. He wasn't nearly as crazy of a rider as these videos. But
it was early in the season, and he hit some leftover sand from the winter.
All the other guys made it through..But he was going too fast, couldn't correct enough, and slid into the path of the van. He died instantly, even
though he was wearing all the high-end safety gear.
The terrain was a lot like the first video at about 3 minutes in.
He was supposed to be at my house to watch the game, but the weather was warm, and he went riding instead.
I know it's not the bike's fault, but I still hate them. I also hate the fact that there are riders out there that do this crap on public streets.
Take it to the track, with other willing participants.
