Hanging off and knee down are the responses that racers in the past used to deal with finding the limits of tire adhesion and lean angles on the track. Joe Dipshit will never come close to the limits of a modern sport bike and is just posing.

So you didn't leave your lane but you passed other bikes? So, either you mean the were coming toward you on the opposite side of the road (in THEIR lane) or you are the fuck turd that passes other bikes in THEIR lane.

Oh n00b!!! Watch the video. When you are done... Bring us back some beer and a stack of bacon sammiches.

Yes, he passed in the same lane and NO, there was nothing wrong with it.

Definitely an HD stereotype that applies.

Here's a recent pic from Killboy, taken with a GoPro HD hung from a kite.

I'm adding it here since there's no Killboy Win thread...

I agree. They use a paint that is almost like plastic film around here. Slick when it's dry and like a snotty doorknob when wet.

I meant to do that when I was at the Outer Banks, NC last summer but forgot to bring it down with me.

When the cops sprayed the fire the victim was fogged with smoke and extinguisher residue. It looks like they left him for dead.

I was thinking the guy with the gloves could have pulled the bike by the rear tire and maybe taken the fire further from the equation.



Killboy himself below





Killboy's Darryl Cannon (on the silver CBR) gets bit by the Dragon.

Darryl himself has been snake-bit by the Tail of the Dragon. Riding a camera bike for a DVD appropriately called Bit by the Dragon, a bobble by the lead rider triggered a bigger twitch from the second one and an even bigger spasm (and front-end departure) for Darryl in the third position. Even years of Deal's Gap road wisdom can't inoculate you against calamity. Darryl was hurting for sure after that one...but of course the photos were freakin' awesome!

10 Top Ways Not To Crash
1. Learn the road.
2. Stay on your side!
3. Leave room for oncoming jackasses who don't stay on their side.
4. Forget about your rear brake on the pavement.
5. Forget about your front brake on the roadside gravel.
6. Know where to pass-if you pass at all.
7. Don't turn across the centerline to get to the shoulder.
8. Memorize those turns riders/drivers frequently blow.
9. Respect the Dragon.
10. No "douche bagging."

You forgot number 11 & #12.
#11: Have a safe following distance between you and the person in front of you...
#12: No matter how good you think you are the highway is NOT a race track.

If they hadn't been so close together like they were in a race, Darryl wouldn't have lost it. At least the camera man in the photo knows where to stand so he won't be taken out!
