Classic example of why I don't ride with groups. Seems like there is at least one in every group that thinks nothing about endangering the life of the rest of the group. Seems that there were some good riders to avoid a major crash.

The dumbass is lucky he didn't get run over for his troubles. Hope he enjoys the road rash. Maybe He'll smarten up after he heals. If not, a putty knife and sponge should be enough to pick him up next time. :claps:

Not avery smart move for sure. The video caption however said he somehow managed to not get any road rash though. Not sure how that worked but his hide was very fortunate. His bike however didn't fare so well. :sadguy:

I was waiting for him to slide into a guardrail post and achieve his life long goal of singing soprano........I remain disappointed.

Pretty easy to answer the poll when the answer is in the link. :)

Actually, I'm moderately offended. I think by calling people like those zoom-splats you're patinting an awfully broad brush on those of us that responsibly ride sport bikes.

Instead of mocking the sport bike, how about mocking the rider? I believe that term is "squid".

Guess you'll have to remain somewhat offended. Zoomsplat is a term that's been used on this forum for quite a while indicating a sportbike being ridden by an idiot. If the term doesn't fit you, it isn't referring to you. If it does, it does. No one is guaranteed freedom from offense.

I'm aware it's been used around here for a long time. I took modest offense to Zoomsplat the first time I heard it. Been a member here for years, first time I'm voicing my distaste.

Doesnt' mean you need pay any attention to me.

I vote C, but I have a fraction of B in my vote too.

I believe the camera-everywhere syndrome captures just how stupid some of us on this planet are.

I sure would not have wanted a camera on me at certain times in my life. So far, at least up to now, I've survived all my stupid moments.

That said, I also believe that we have a society of "good-enoughers" coming forward. Critical thinking, problem solving and common sense will be new divisional lines between a new set of classes that are yet to be defined.

Sorry - I'll step off the soapbox.

Another term that focuses on the rider only is, I believe,

SKIN CRAYON.

I am glad no one was hurt, but jeeZo, what dopey move.

I think in this case the term could be "SKID".

Looks like a failed attempt by mother nature to clean up the shallow end of the gene pool. I am sure the idiot will give her another chance.
