With all the latest forum buzz about group rides and safety.. found some videos that are entertaining, not gory, work safe, yet show what can happen when you follow to close... enjoy

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

It seems to me that there was a whole lot of "serious stoopid" going on. Exactly the argument that some were trying to make on the other thread.

That is the kind of "hanging off" I DON'T do. Body lean into a turn is one thing.....Rossi wannabe is something else again. Makes the case that the news team was making, too.

Again: STOOPID! Riding to the limits of adhesion on public thoroughfares is probably not very wise. Costly, too.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Those guys could not, or chose not, to control their bikes enough to contain themselves within their own lane. Why ride a twisty road if you intend to straigthen out a single turn!

In the video of the two guys racing (on the street no less!), you could easily feel it when they stopped riding the road and tunneled their focus solely on passing each other.

There's just such a multitude of STOOPID going on. Definitely a training video collection. Hard to believe no one was killed.

Video cameras $500.
All the riding gear $1000
The price of seeing two dumbfucks crash their Ducatis?




I dunno, ask the dumbfucks.

On the 1st video you could see it coming. I was waiting for the crash or one of them to hit some one. " How dangerous and stupid can you get"? I would bet that there is more of this that goes on than we know. I sure hope the video is as close as I get to that kind of $h%t angry.gif .

I saw a zillion places where a few milliseconds would have resulted in death or injury. I don't think I want to go that fast. MM2, if, on your rides, you guys go that fast.. just tell me where you want to meet and I'll join you in a couple hours. dribble.gif dribble.gif

1 Ducati and 1 Bimota. Nevertheless, 'two dumb fucks' is most accurate! BTW, IINM, those nimrods are actually scribes for one of the British rags. Can someone confirm this?

1.) I doubt this rather portly body could go that fast.
2.) I seriously doubt this portly body would go that fast.
3.) If I were to consider altering either of the above 2 statements, the proper place to ride like that is on a track after some intense instruction.
4.) My wrist bone is connected to my wallet bone...my wallet bone is connected to my pain threshhold bone.... Er, uhm, I've earned every one of the gray hairs I possess and I intend to be around long enough to earn more.

Can't confirm this, but it seems possible. Last time DH and I went to England, we brought a selection of British rags home to share with our friends. I was almost ashamed to be associated with these people. The bike mags had as many bare breasts as bikes, and ads for out and out porn.

The articles used four letter words, and condoned stopping off for a few beers while test riding bikes. Maybe that was Mr Ducati's problem?

There were no female riders featured, just eye candy perched on the back of sport bikes, without protective gear.

Enjoy

The trials video was great. I always enjoy watching someone ride a bike over a car. And the section with the bridge, I have to agree with roverjohn, that was insane. Thanks for the post.
