Apparently the squids are getting tv time on tracks now, there not just out on the streets displaying stupidity.

That's a perfect re-enactment of a squid crash I witnessed last year... He was even riding a ZX10R as well!

This just proves that massive amounts of horsepower isn't always a good thing?



It would have been interesting to here the lecture I'm betting he got when he got back to the paddock area! I'll bet it was heated.

Please tell us that your squid had good gear on? Coz that would hurt without a back protector! Heck it would hurt with one!



Ouch!!!!

Heck, I looped my DR over once and it only has about 38 Hp. Luckily, in my case, there was no one around to witness my stupidity. ;-)

While this does look like a very squidly thing to do, I am pretty sure that this happened at a WSB race last year. I may have the nevue wrong, but I know it was a high-level professional race. I saw that race (not live, but as a re-run) last year on Speed. I think it was more a teasing way to look behind him. The rider was trying to make the rider behind him jealous, and ended up taking himself out. Don't quote me on any of this except for the fact that this was not some squid race.

Speaking of making an ass of yourself in public, has anybody seen any video of that idiot who crashed into the back of the pack during the parade lap at Laguna Seca last year?

Everybody that's ridden dirt bikes for very long has looped at least once. On the plus side we usually did it at well under a 100+ mph, and there weren't a dozen guys on 400 lb bikes behind us.

Lucky for you, you ride an airhead and looping isn't a worry.

Listen up, all you X-treme Gen Y'ers:



Hot-dogging is empty vanity that can only cost you. Stop being narcissistic a$$wipes and just win. Holding a first-place trophy is more satisfying and lasting than pulling some dipsh!t stunt.

Since the Olympics, a move like this should be known as a "pulling a Jacobellis."

James Stewart did a 'watch ya call it' at the finish of last weeks motocross race. His picture with the bike crossed-up made a good full page ad for Kawasaki in the following issue of Cycle News. At least some of these finish line stunts aren't all foolishness.

Yeah and it's a good thing too. I'm just getting to old to lift 450 lbs of motorcycle off of what would be left of me if I looped it.

I can't speak that language very well, but I swear I heard him say, " hold my beer, I'm gonna try something" just before the crash?
