I meant to do that...
« on: June 20, 2014, 03:58:13 PM »
Local news has a bit of video showing a bike in Florida t-boning a car making a left in an intersection. The rider flips over the car and cartwheels in the intersection, rolling to a stop and getting up.

Rider is okay, bike is destroyed, riser says and I quote, I knew I couldn't go through the car so I locked up my brakes to be thrown over the handlebars and the car.....

Yeah he meant to do that...I'm thinking not. Anyone else are this?

So, he's like a gymnast completing with an intentional dismount?


What did the judges give him?

If your going to crash, make it spectacular. Add a great recovery and you get at least a 9.  :smoking:

I saw zero indication in that video of the bike braking in any manner. Blind asshole should have seen that coming a mile away.

Did he get style points.
At the risk of encouraging him, I agree with Cookie.   "Bomber"

According to Smith his bike, which he named Lindsay Lohan, is a complete write-off.
