Or you, too, will end up looking like a twat… Would you like ketchup with your leaves sir?August 15, 2008 at 3:09 am #10563

There is no reason for him to have missed any of those turns. He absolutely didn’t even try to turn. He froze. This guy needs to give it up.

I think he was just being a jacka$$ for his camera.August 15, 2008 at 1:20 pm #10595
He doesn’t even try to initiate lean to take those turns he missed. So either he has no clue, he froze or he was hamming it up for the camera.August 15, 2008 at 3:44 pm #10600megaspazParticipant
taken at his word and how hard he was breathing after eating leaves, I thought he was genuinely clenching his butt cheeks. He’s definately going too fast on the straights for his abilities to feel comfortable initiating the lean into the turns and target fixating on what he could possibly hit instead of turning his head completely through the turn.

around, I want it caught and shot now…August 15, 2008 at 5:07 pm #10609ShannonGParticipant
He’s riding your bike, isn’t he? Does yours have clip on bars?August 15, 2008 at 5:31 pm #10614
Yeah I noticed his head focused on the trees and not where he wanted to go. That guy is a danger to himself as well as everyone else and shouldn’t ride on the road.
Spaz, does your bike sound like that? His didn’t sound like it was idling right.

I think Spaz is right about the target fixation and going to fast. He wasn’t even slowing down for those corners though. Just because the guy in front can lean without slowing and drag a knee doesn’t mean any idiot can do it.August 15, 2008 at 5:51 pm #10619
We know that at least one idiot can’t.

…but kucos to him for showing it to world. He wasn’t claiming to be a good rider.August 15, 2008 at 6:16 pm #10623BenParticipant
I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t done that before, granted, it’s never happend 3 times on the same ride!!!

Solomolo RiderAugust 15, 2008 at 9:01 pm #10638
he looked at the turn way before he was even there and when he was at the position to lean and initiate, he got surprise by its sharpness.. and vlam..mooooing rider and his gooing bike… but well everyone was a noob till where you all are now…
