Don't be a tool...

If you're gonna clean your chain, be smart about it.

Holy jeebus! That's gruesome. I saw it was the gixxer forum when I clicked it and thought it would be funny... not funny.

Yeah, not a pretty sight by any means.

It seems like he had the camera going before the gushing stopped... wouldn't be my first thought.

I think if I was there I might have been laughing. Thats basically the same as trying to clean a circular saw while it is running.

Wow, that is definitely the wrong way to do that. Gixxer guys seem to have a problem with doing really stupid things, I wonder if he's related to the guy putting NOS energy drink in his tank.

Guys that stupid scare the crap outta me. His ability to make even simple decisions like cleaning a chain is nonexistent. How could he not see that one coming? He should take up stamp collecting and stay off of motorcycles!

Everyone on that forum keeps saying, "lots of us here have done stupider things than that and survived intact"

...I'm just not sure 1) that its possible to do something dumber, and 2) that you could survive stupider intact. I could go on, but I'd like to think that no one here is that retarded.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I knew a guy on the EX500 forum who did that too. Lopped it off at the knuckle. And another guy did it on the SVrider. So I guess it happens a lot.

Remember people whose brains allow them to make decisions like this are out riding and driving amongst us. Scary.

I think the only posted close call with a cain on this forum was Ripper... He didn't have the bike running i think so his finger just looked a little swollen. That dudes hand looked GNARLY.

"2.) To show that you don't have to be riding for a bike to get you hurt."

I hate it when people make these sorts of statements. Somehow the bike forced him to do it?? What the hell??

Here are some words to live by "don't stick your hand where you wouldn't stick your d!ck"

If God had wanted us to be vegetarians why did he make animals out of meat?

Well, if you were my doctor, I'd probably put off that prostate exam for as long as possible. Just sayin'.

RE:

Reminded me of Hi School shop class. The maintance man came in and wanted to use the table saw. Our instructor told us to watch how the cut was done correctly. Rip, pop,pop, and 3 fingers flew across the room. I remembered that my whole life. Machines can and will hurt you.
