From the looks of things he made out worse than the guy who wrecked in front of him.

Seems like most everyone has crashed at this place. I need to check it out. Where is this road?
That comment has back story on here little grasshopper and it was meant for that crazy chap wearing scooter rider. Seldom am I serious unless we are talking about government handouts.

OR he could of slowed the down once he was crossing over the yellow thats a pretty good sign you are riding out of your abilities.

Stopped looking where he wanted to go, Guy following wasn't leaving enough space for him to react in case the guy in front did go down SO HE went down as well.

Sorry guys maybe one day I'll get up to speed on all the inside jokes.

I'm sure somewhere out there, there is someone who just signed up and is wondering why Chris 5.0 dollars is completely obsessed with saving five dollars on everything.

Can you guys help a noob out and tell me where this road is?

On the way home from work today I saw a ten minute oil change place that was advertising 5 dollars off on their LED sign. It made me think of you

What went wrong, with the cat that hit the armco or the cat with the Gopro? Man as soon as the the rider went over the stripe I would have back-off or passed him. At that point it was just a matter of time.
