"Carving" might not be the right word.

"Tenderizing" maybe...

Hey, he's more than 15 degrees from vertical. That's pretty good for some cruiser riders.

See these two, who did not come close to touching their dangling helmets on the ground:

A couple of things make me think "P'Shop", but if so, they did a great job.

Hey, if you were a bike and had that much weight on you, you would not lean either.

On 22 Octobere 1895, this train crashed through the buffers at Montparnasse Station, Paris, and travelled over 100 feet without rails before crashing through the wall. Only one passerby was killed. The fireman, two conductors and a couple of passengers were injured. The accident was caused by a faulty brake and speeding - so there is a (sort of) relevant lesson to be learned.

I personally saw the damage caused by a freight train which backed off the end of a siding, with several hundred feet of of chemical tank-cars travelling across a parking lot and through the corner of a nearby building. Fortunately it was going slowly and nothing tipped over. The driver, a half-mile away at the other end of the train was completely unaware.

Don't be shy, that's what this thread is all about. Just need a few more OT pics from Asia, Oceania, and the Sub-continent and this segment of Killboy failure will be a truly globe-spanning train wreck.

Here we go
