Geez...Lay off the cool comment. Never did I say the man was cool, just that he made doing something pretty dumb look cool. He looks like a douchebag. But I would still take that bike for long distance touring, we have to agree to disagree about the bike. Probably one of the only good HDs.

No offense, but you sound like a major buzzkill. Are they putting saltpeter in the kangaroo meat or something?

Maybe I'm just young and stupid, but I found that video entertaining.

Why you getting all upset. He has a right to an opinion.
Speaking of buzzkill.

It's okay. This thread jumped the shark a few pages ago.

We were at the Indy round of the MotoGP this year. They ran the HD's as a support class. We really didn't even bother watching, but while walking around the course my 13 year old daughter saw a bit of them and said, "dad, those bikes are slow."

From the mouths of babes...

Out of the mouth of babes comes the truth.

Not to beat a dead horse and to reclaim this thread the "HD rider" in the crash video was identified as Chuck Norris' son! Check it out on cyrilhuzepost. I think that is why he could just get up and walk away.
