Yikes!!!

I've banged up the "elephant ears" before, but not so dramatically.

It looks to me, like he was riding his bike on the opposite side of the bollards meant to prevent this happening...

Dang, sucks to be him. Well, actually, looks like he was lucky there was a boat there. Otherwise the bike might have fallen on top of him in the water or worse. Don't see why he was riding inside the bollards, though.

I've seen this posted like a dozen times in the last 2 days. Funny as hell. The best part is, it doesn't look like there was much room after that bollard that hit to keep going anyway...

I am more curious why someone was video taping this. Makes me think no matter where I fall, someone will be recording it
