Rich,

I'm sure you are not typical of our many friends across the ocean. Anyone that thinks that someone who pulls a stunt like that is typical of an entire nation of many responsible motorcyclists

Hi Belvoir,

I would the person in the clip was not a motorcycle rider (if he was he was well drunk). I would concure that riders from whatever country they originate from to a degree will ride safe and perhaps the 'typical yank' comment was some what out of order becuase as you state(ish) this is not typical of riders your side of the pond So perhaps look on youtube & find a 'typical Brit' video ... I'm sure there will be loads !!

Regards Jim

Most of the time I don't care to watch stupid stunts gone wrong. I leave the stunts to the guys that get paid for it. I'm 52 and don't heal as good as I used to and those days of messing around are long gone for me. I don't like getting hurt nor do I think it's funny seeing others getting hurt. Beyond that I certainly hate to see someone destroy a costly motorcycle. B)

I'd bet he was just some Numbnut showing off beyond his capabilities.It was kind of funny,I just didn't care too much for someone trying to say that it was typical of my countrymen when I know that to be incorrect.It was mildly amusing to watch,but I hate to see someone wreck a motorcycle that I can't afford to buy and would love to have.That's what I meant by "Waste". Anyway,let's not talk about who said what about whom,as I'm not wanting to stir it up again.
