That is a good picture. I know how you feel about that but at the same time my husband and all our friends used to do that when they all rode on the street. Now they don't think its cool but before they did. It's cool they can do that but I think it should be done in a controlled environment. My husbnad has wrecked in the street once doing something stupid and to tell you first hand when you see something like that just watch out for them cause something could happen in an instant and no one would be prepapred. Thanks for sharing... I agree not safe... although he is safer then most I see he's got his helmet on...

MillHippies - there's absolutely more to it. The dude is riding a crotch rocket, w/o armor, and he's popping a wheelie. You get massive excelleration since there's less friction, but you have way less control over something that doesn't like to be controlled as it is. I've been down on my bike a couple of times and all I can say is that armor makes all the difference between walking away and taking a trip in a car with pretty red lights.

My brother sent me a photo of his buddy the other day - he took it from his cell phone. They all ride crotch-rockets... some of the riders do some insane things! I'll post it soon on my blog to show you the stunt guy ;) Don't let me forget LOL that is if I didn't delete the picture mail....

Why are you taking pictures while you should be driving? Hmmmmm? My best friend died in a motor cycle accident a few years ago. He wasn't doing anything stupid at the time, but he would do stuff like this all the time.

He wanted to impress the girl with the camera!

caleb is right. Do you want to be killed? Two hands on the wheel 10 and 2. Jesus.

Since Johnny Menace and Caleb have clearly put me in my place...I believe I will not be speaking again on this matter. **shame**

And guess what Johnny Menace! I bet you don't drive at 10 and 2!!! I bet you talk on your cell phone...and play with the radio!

Memphis- **blush** But that's not what it was! lol
