Don't do this!

For some the riding season never ends, some it is coming to an end, and some it is just restarting. Whatever the case, remember to use a little more judgement of your situation than this guy.

Hard to believe the rider is even alive after that.

Had to be terrifying to the people in the van too.

there's some or sometimes many on every brand. i do realize that

it's just fun stereotyping the gsxr crowd

i think the bike of choice for the squids/"stunta's" is whom ever has won the sport/superbike of the year or what bike the latest who's who of the stunt crowd rides

Had a similar one here in Davenport a few years back.....motorcyclist made it into the van in same manner......he didn't make it and left wife w/kids behind. Very sad. Everyone be careful and use good judgment.

......for me, buying the 919 was saying to myself......it's time to chill out for a while.

You can feel like your 'on-it'.... look down and still be within legal speeds.

At what point did 105hp become NOT ENOUGH power for the street?

same thing happened here a couple years back, younger guy took a used sport bike from one of the dealers in this town for a test ride and he went thru the back window of a mini van and landed in the back seat with fairly minor injuries.
