Idiots, the lot of 'em.
Not a problem....

Itíll be fixed right up with careful application of another MAXWRIST frame sticker...

The videos are quite entertaining and he seems like a nice guy enough. His GF is a good sport about it, since he is posting it for all to see. He reminds me of the Sean Penn character in the movie Fast Times at Ridgemount High. One can feel their exuberance when they're loading the bikes for the trip. But this is not a movie, this is real life. To quote a SoCal legend, "and we'll have fun fun fun til daddy takes the T-bird away", in this case, "til someone gets hurt." That said, I am very glad that "Jesus" rider is not hurt. Fork seals leaks will get you. They probably all got poison ivy too.

Maybe she just needed more heal on those boots?
But back to their riding,,,
I would have to say I wouldn't be hart broken if the whole lot of them had gone off that edge....except then some first responders would have to come in and clean up the mess.

Oh for Dogs sake. There is so much wrong with this. Video starts with the camera bike completely blowing a turn( Obvious target fixation) and almost hitting a car head on. The response? "Hyuk hyuk hyuk", giggling like a moron. The crash was on Bear Creek Road. Again, a clear example of target fixation and basically running off the road.The area it happened is the East side where it is really tight. And I really don't understand the camera bike behavior. He pulls over to let his buddies by, then proceeds to pass them all, over and over. I guess he's "Showing them how it's done"
I hope they stick around SoCal so they can crash on Muholland instead of here.

As much as I dislike the riding behavior, the one thing I get is the passing over and over. We have a member of our riding group that is a very accomplished rider and was a pro road racer at one point in his life. He is into videography now and records our yearly 3 day ride for us. He will hang back, let everyone pass him and then work his way up through the pack. He gets some great recordings of us and it's fun to see. He does this all through the day, sometimes riding way out in front of us and then recording as we go by but the best videos are of him working his way up through the pack.

Wait, didn't the rider who crashed ("Two Wheel Jesus") proudly boast that he had no front brakes when they had all stopped in Boulder Creek?

Ok, so maybe Target Fixation wasn't to blame...MAYBE. But riding that pace with a bike with blown fork seals and oil soaked brakes is just criminal stupidity.
They all seem very proud of themselves. After all " It's happened before. It will happen again."

And , Being VERY allergic to poison oak, I can verify that what they were all standing in is indeed poison oak.

That is exactly what I was thinking. It's almost a given based on where they are.

Well... well.

Some crazy riding, some good and some shitty riding.. blowing the DY like that? That shows what happens to riders that don't have the skill set when riding with riders that are more skilled than they and they try to keep up. Deadly situation. Some super bad decisions made.

The filming and editing skillset was cool.. I will say that.

Being a hooligan is what some of us do at times.
That was over the top in my view... wheeling by cars and slamming DY passes when cars are coming the other way / essentially splitting them.

And they are from So Cal don't know the roads or expected road conditions during a time of year where the roads up in the mountains can be sketchy.

And.. no front brake Jesus!!
You are one lucky dude.

Plus a road trip while SIP protocols are ordered and the hooliganism.. pretty much tells me these dudes are not responsible motorcyclists..

I hate that I still enjoyed a lot of it.

The comments are a good indicator that being a bad ass rider is a cool thing that many appreciate and aspire too.

Heel doesn't help, since you're already tip-toeing on a tall bike. Need more material under the toes. I had some of my wife's boots re-soled for that once.

I was discussing this vid with another crazy boy... like I was at 20.

I came to the conclusion that sane insane people race instead of showing off on the street. Probably kept me alive.
