Such a shame to see a nice Aprilia on the ground like that. At least the slider seems to be serving it's purpose.

The years of design, the precision engineering, the high quality components and assembly that went into producing that beautiful piece of performance machinery.

Only to be completely negated by a moran. It's a crime against the machine and the entire manufacturing process.

If you view photos at US129Photos.com / XtremeSportsPhotography.com, the photos are organized by date. On high traffic days, the photos are broken down into sub-categories. Photos of this guy are always in the "Friends" subcategory. This pic was from October 8th, 2011 Saturday
Then, I suspect he was wearing the helmet entirely for the camera's benefit - and we fell for it

Yeah well, atleast he's wearing a flip up helmet, jacket and gloves, not the usual brainbucket, mask, sleeveless wife-beater combo. Plus he's on his side of the road

Actually, that is a Yamaha Tour Delux. It wants to be a HD less than just about anything. It is a fine highway eating mile muncher. Nice smooth V-4 engine. It does however turn like a pregnanant Yak. Not a technical road bike in most hands. LOL As demonstrated here.
