    Idiots Guide to Riding Deal's Gap

    Watching this video is painful. Not the quality of the video, but the sheer lack of riding capability.

    I'm not sure if he doesn't "get" counter-steer, cannot read very basic entry points into and out of corners, or is just plain going insane. As a 16 yr old on my first street bikes, I had the basics figured out. This guy, NOT.

    "Stupid" does not even begin to cover it.

    I guess completely blowing fifty corners was not enough of a sign that he should slow down. And he was still passing people... what a nightmare to have such idiots on the road. (Had a similarly skilled squid pass me on an orange sportbike on King George HWY today.)

    Best thing you can hope for is to not be involved in their inevitable fuck up.
    "Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."

    Whats with people and putting their heads over the line in corners?

    Do they not like their heads? Do they not expect another numbnuts to be doing the same?

    Er, so the othe numbnuts would be leaning to the outside of the corner?

    Great find on the vid, I'd have said someone trolling u tube except for the ending. Just fubar'd every corner.

    Never know... Or just going wide.

    there was an overlay pic of a rider making a left turn like that and a bus or truck going the other way. Guess how much of his torso would have been going bye bye.

    By golly that's frightening. jeez how many warnings do you need to learn you're in over your head and slow down?
    Some people are like Slinkies ...
    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    That was fucking scary. Ride in hot to a corner you can’t see around, then pull the clutch and coast through it? fucking nuts. I'm not a great rider at all, but the obvious thing there would have been slow down before the corner..

    I though he was using the point and shoot technique.
    R.I.P #48 Shoya Tomizawa (December 10, 1990 – September 5, 2010)
