Well, he is riding and we are here posting on an Internet forum.

Who are we to tell him how to ride?

So is that a seat fail or a tank win?

Well, it looks like the tank is getting fucked, so I don't know who exactly is winning.

Yep, I going for a ride to town to get some stuff. Then up my logging roads to cut some fallen trees blocking the road to get ready to do some logging to improve the habitat for the Golden-Winged Warbler.

So keep the photos coming since I don't have time to go ride the Dragon today.

Or, cause an accident due to target fixation.

It is visible from down the road. Maybe that will slow the bikers down?

There are plenty of signs along that road that can cause target fixation like the 25 MPH curve warning sign. No one has hit it yet. Obliviously a lot of riders don't even see it.

Jordan Szoke is the 9 time Canadian Superbike champion.

Grom down. Again.

Apparently this guy lost it twice AND got two tickets on that trip.

The guy he's hassling on the sportbike is supposedly a friend. I probably wouldn't ride with someone that might wipe me out at any moment on his 125cc toy...








COUNTERLEANNNN!




What is this, I don't even...
