Dumb comments on YouTube

YouTube - yamaha R1 TURBO!

First comment on the second page kinda irritated me. "Good job slamming the front end down!!! learn how to ride!!!" It is almost impossible not to slam the front down on a turbo bike, it is not like a normal bike. As soon as you let off the throttle you loose the normal power, but you also loose a lot of the boost power since the exhaust goes down and the turbo stops spinning as quick. The only way I can not slam mine down is if I shift quick on the up swing in first and grab a full hand full of second before the front end hits, and that only happens by chance. . . I guess I could grab another hand full of first, but the same thing would happen and it doesn't really accomplish anything.

YouTube is full of idiotic comments. Some of the comments bashing guys who put up drum videos are way past disrespectful, much less show how little somebody may know a subject they choose to post about.

Those making the comments probably don't have the balls (I know I don't(maybe a little)) to ride a machine with that much power potential...

I've noticed that too with the drum videos (as well as practically every other thing), it seems people have no respect nowadays.
