simple ... stay off motorcycles if you can't control yourself when it comes to speed and showing off ....

if you don't know what it means to ride within your skill level then I don't know what to tell you. Kinda speaks for itself. Just cause you can stay on 2 wheels and not fall off doesn't mean your a cornering guru and need to take corners like that. p.s. I'll be looking for your stuff in the for sale section.

hmmm... could it be the head on with a large truck? professional riders don't usually have that problem on a track. professioal riders don't usually suffer from target fixation either.... those are typically noob mistakes.

well if peeps are wanting me to feel sorry for this guy.... tough . what if it had been a family in a little car that he head-on'd instead and he killed an innocent person... would ya'll still feel sorry for him. what if were YOU coming around that corner and he injured you for life... would you still feel sorry for him? honesty is not always pretty.... but it is still the truth.

I mean, I DO feel bad for the guy and his friends and family, but it was HE that put himself in harms way.


You have to place blame on someone in that wreck.....do you place it on the truck?


BTW, to the guy who thought we were serious about having dibs on good parts.

funny you should say that. a bus driver with my old company got sued because a car driver CAUSED a wreck and got injured by the bus hitting him. but because the driver had an out of compliance log book he got sued because if he had been in compliance he would have never been at the scene at that time and the bus never would have stuck him.

or you meant it takes skill to keep from crashing ...nawhhh that can't be true either ...



how you know this dude wasn't riding for 20 years
and don't give me this about pro's don't run off their nice little tracks and crash into their nice little padded barricade ...cuz they went wide



so i guess every time Roger Hayden crashes he was out of his skill zone ... or Maladin or Rossi ....:/:

well for starters I don't think you'll ever see a rider head on a truck at a track.....

secondly, just because one rides for 20 years does not make them good at it.

I would much rather crash into a tire wall than a duece and a half.
