I agree with you man, but I still feel bad for the guy. Atleast he had some gear on, I give him credit for that. Damn, that had to suck for him though!

poor guy. Looks like he had wished to use the back break and drop some tire pressure.

i agree...hopefully taught him a lesson and he wont do that shit until he has learned the basics at least. i rode with a guy a few years back that had only rode a few months and was already doing wheelies. couldnt corner or brake worth a shit but he thought he was a wheelie guru. he came into a corner a little hot, stood it up and rode straight into an armored car and broke his neck. a wheel chair is all hes gonna be stunting now... poor bastard...wish something like this would have totalled his bike before that could have happened. he was a good guy too.

it's much easier to learn at speed 40mph + IMO. You have less balance to worry about the bike wants to ride straight not all weeble-wobbly.
