Unsure where to put this

However, figure it could lead to some good discussions here..

For example, was the cup worthy of such a daring deed, or would simply notifying the driver been adequate, seems like a lot of risk to go through, but It's still pretty neat!

Rider knows his own skills and has his own personal judgement. I would have ridden up to driver's window, got attention and made a drinking motion with hand. In fact, I did that to a fellow who left a silver tumbler on his roof next to his luggage rack. Worked perfectly.

Trying to grab it would be "iffy". Vehicle could turn into or away from you. The driver may see you and think your up to know good as well. Glad it worked out...

I think that's an example of extreme stupidity.

Now I understand why there was a one-handed slalom course during a motorcycle safety training.

Lighten up people!

Hell, bad things can happen as soon as you wake up. The probability increases as soon as you get out of bed. They increase even more when you walk into the bathroom.
The probability factor goes astronomical when you swing a leg over a motorcycle. And you know what, it's called Being Alive.

After you die, you will never be in danger again. I hope someone notices your presence before then.

I used to have fun opening car doors on the interstate.
People I knew, not strangers...

Turning other riders kill switch or key off used to be popular also.
I never got hurt doing it.

I pulled the Key out of a friends GSXR 750 right in the middle of the Bikers for Babies ride in Kansas City and threw it in the ditch! and he had his girlfriend on the back with about 3 thousand Harley dingle berries lined up behind him!
Hitting someones Kill switch as the light turns green is a classic!!

Looks like fun. Life is terminal.

I like tapping people's feet and/or hands they hang out the window.
