Well from the looks of it... no major front end damage... so I would say he looped it then laid the bike down.... him and bike go sliding into the back of the well built toyota.

amazing how quickly people can forget all of the stupid they've done and start condemning others for being stupid.

"the fundamental attribution error (also known as correspondence bias or overattribution effect and frequently confused with the actor-observer bias) is the tendency for people to over-emphasize dispositional, or personality-based, explanations for behaviors observed in others while under-emphasizing the role and power of situational influences on the same behavior. In other words, people tend to have a default assumption that what a person does is based more on what "kind" of person he or she is, rather than the social and environmental forces at work on that person. This default assumption leads to people sometimes making erroneous explanations for behavior. This general bias to over-emphasizing dispositional explanations for behavior at the expense of situational explanations is much less likely to occur when people evaluate their own behavior."

prolly some squid that didnt take msf and tryied to stop by only using his rear brake only.....Rip to the guy sucks for his family.


Or on the other hand it may have not been a stunt at all he may have not been use to the acceleration and power of the bike and slammed into the back of the car without doing a so called stunt

Why the do we always have these threads? its always a stir pot of drama, and it never changes.

Too bad, he killed himself, half of our stunters are not that stupid, You wanna practice tricks, then go somewhere else. There is always consiqenses for your actions, weather is something small like waking up late for work, or deciding to do wheelies on the freeway.
boohoo, he died, once again people, just learn to not do stupid things.

The police say he did a stunt, in reality that doesn't mean he did. They also said it was a bicycle.

one might argue that riding motorcycles, much less stunting motorcycles, is stupid in and of itself.

that is true! people tell me im stupid and will die on a motorcycle, be it so, thats my choice, and I know the consicuenses. How this dude died in a neihborhood unless he was doing 100, he knew those consicuenses, so, no skin off my back.

1arm1leg, you did not see the truck coming around the corner, you were passing someone else. it was a mistake, not a "Hey jim bob, look what I can do!"

2- he TRIED to wheelie in a neighborhood with parked cars on the street! NOT SMART.

But NOOOOOO he must have not been wearing a helmet because he was 22. Yeah you're right that does make more sense.

Jumping to assumptions yourself arent ya?

Racer linked the article, it would seem logical that he READ it.
Riders name and general nature of the accident/injury is listed.
Happen to remember those...i think those statistics is the word
in regards to AGE & accidents etc?

Simple conclusion a 'youngster' screwed up and paid the ultimate price.

Does he pay you to swing from his nuts? go back and read my comment again. The rider obviously screwed up, he's dead...but nowhere in the article does it say he was not wearing a helmet. "someone" concluded on their own that he must not have been wearing a helmet simply because of his age. And what assumptions of mine are you referring to? I didnt say he didnt read the article. What you are BOTH doing now, is assuming that because a lot of young people dont take proper safety precautions, that this guy HAD to have done the same. Is that not a little narrow minded? The fact that he did something stupid is blatantly obvious. But I think it's a little irresponsible on your part to assume he wasnt wearing a helmet based only upon his age. Let's take into account ALL the factors here, not just age. All I'm getting from your comments, is young people are stupid and irresponsible. You can't really believe this is always true, do you?

no. Racer X assumed he wasn't wearing a helmet because he was knocked unconcious and later died from related injuries. 9 times out of 10 in a fairly low speed wreck, even if it involved a big fall, if the rider is wearing a helmet, head injuries are minor. almost always not anywhere close enough to kill you.

pretty ****ing hypocritical of you to assume what Racer X meant by his comment without even giving him a chance to clarify, don't you think?
