« on: April 02, 2014, 10:08:45 pm »
Don't know if you've seen this.
Ridden this road a few times and there are some BONKERS riders on there!!
This guy ends up at the bottom of a 40 foot drop and walks away!! Lucky Git!

Saw this on the news channel earlier - the police are considering prosecution for dangerous riding. Bet he wishes he'd kept this video to himself...

 :084: that is just nuts.  Have ridden this road loads of times and that is certainly not the way to do it.  As has been said a very lucky man.

Looked at the video yesterday.

The guy claims to be a good rider. In my opinion he deserves all he gets ie police prosecution for being a stupid idiot.

There is Nothing good about what he did. Plus crossing solid lines is already a traffic offense.

This is a walking statistic not particularly interested in him but it is the person he kills on his next idiotic ride. If that had been a biker riding as he should coming towards him there would have been 2 fatalities.

Ban the idiot. he is only 21yrs  probably wont reach 22 they way he acts.   No sympathy for him

I believe 3 bikers killed in Lancashire and Cumbria area last sunday  he was not one but I wonder how many of the three was down to riding like that ???
   Feel sorry for bikers who were killed and not there fault but riders like that I feel sorry for there families who are left behind  :440: slow down save riding like that for track days
