Crazy Motorcyclists

Post by Big Boy » Thu Sep 15, 2016 9:38 am

A couple of young kids decided to perform to my rear facing camera as I drove my son to work this morning. All it would have taken was a pothole, and without any helmets, those performers would soon have been victims.

Happens all the time especially on Pala U Road, and if they crashed into the back of your car who would pay for the damage as they will have no insurance.

Actually, this is the first time for a long time I've seen idiots doing wheelies.

Youth ah yes I remember it well, I think!
I was also a Dick on a 750cc bike at 21, wheelies, 100 + mph (never got caught), screaming through country towns in Wales ha ha the good old days. How we change and become moaning old farts.

Don't see much harm in what they are doing. Just kids having a bit of fun. So they fall off, lesson learnt.
See it every day in the UK. Adults doing wheelies. Not kids! And the fun police complain about there as well.

I only lived in the UK for 56 years - guess I was just not lucky enough to see it there.

Lesson learnt? No helmet, significant brain injury, maybe death. Disabled through the injuries , needing constant care - that's one hell of a lesson, and potential burden on the family, looking after a cabbage.

I guess we all have different perceptions of different situations e.g. I don't have a problem with loud music in night clubs. I don't have to go in - it's my choice. However, I've little choice but to share my road with these idiots.

When one is young one does not think of consequences, just the thrill. That's why so many take drugs now.

You never drove a car or motocycle faster than the posted speed or weaved around traffic or rode a bycicle with no hands or roller skated in the wrong place?

Yes, I've driven a car over the speed limit. The others, definitely not.

It's quite clear that a few of you obviously condone this type of behaviour on the public highway - I don't. I hope that when one of these idiots loses control, there is nobody else hurt. We will have to agree to disagree.

I have to admit that I have done far worse in my youth and not on an underpowered scooter. Doesn't make it right or legal but youth will always find a way to get their adrenalin rushing.

I'm not condoning their actions/behavior but I see far worse every day, on the roads here, by so called adult experienced drivers.

Yes, absolutely! You cannot blame the kids when idiotic parents do the same thing.

Watching irrational motor cyclists here got me wondering how the driverless cars of the near future will cope with them.
