Great videos! Makes me happy that I won't have to rely on any Social Security for retirement.
No sense in complaining. No one who is stupid enough to video himself while committing misdemeanors and felonies is going to listen to any warnings about consequences.
Which reminds me. A popular argument is that helmets are mandated because a person might possibly end up on the public dole if he injures himself. By the same token obviously sportbikes should be banned.
That dumbass "Crazy Martin" came to Sportbike West in august to participate in the stunt show they organized. After doing a burnout until his tire popped, then continuing to do a burnout on the exploded tire for about 2 minutes, he laid his bike over on its side and stood on it triumphantly. Then it caught fire. Then it caught fire real bad and everyone scattered because it looked like it was gonna blow up. The whole thing burned to a molten mess. If Sean would post my story (wink wink) I have a picture of it. It was funny as hell, pity he didn't get hurt more or at least badly burned.
adrenaline+testosterone+youth+questionable IQ levels=pretty entertaining videos.
But, I have to agree with Sean, they are only cool stunts when done where they aren't endangering innocent bystanders. We motorcyclists already face the general public perception that we are irresponsible risk takers and a burden to society. Stunts like these done in inappropriate locations reinforce that belief.
I don't mind stunting--that is, if you desire to injure yourself repeatedly and turn fine motorcycles into junk. Hell, I'll even watch once in a while when you take your life in your sweaty, little twenty-something hands. But keep it off public roads. You are a menace to the sport of motorcycling and all motorcyclists, particularly sport bike riders.
We don't admire your 80-mph stand-up wheelies on busy highways. We don't admire your stoppies at traffic lights--they are stupid, pointless, and worse, boring. We don't admire you for the empty-headed bimbos who sit nearly naked and completely unprotected on the backs of your bikes, entrusting their lives to equally brain dead "stuntaz." In actuality, we think your are a bunch of jerk-offs. We don't think you're cool or talented--just stupid and selfish. Stop it.
In closing, I'd like to point out that you're all called "squids" by most serious motorcycle enthusiasts (in case you missed the significance of my salutation). You might be surprised to find out that it is not a term of endearment or respect.
