I rode street bikes for 18 years. The first sign of a poor MC rider is having his feet off the footpegs unless he's 100% stopped. This asshole had at least his left foot off the peg as he came yawing out of that turn - a sure sign of incompetence. He also didn't know how to correct his poor choice of a turning line and simply froze and did nothing, too afraid to take emergency action.

Back to the feet not being on the pegs: I see dummies take off from a light or tollbooth an ride 100' feet or more with there feet dragging or hanging. The rule is that if you're moving more than like 2 feet you feet should be immediately on the pegs. This gives you more control and safety right off the bat. I used to stop at lights and try to balance and keep my feet up as long as possible. Once you're moving even 12", the gyroscopic action keeps you balanced.

Btw those dude have a nice lawsuit with that video and all. What a tool.

When they are a teen it's sometimes hot when a chick wears a baseball hat askew...when they are in their 30's it just looks desperate and sad.

I ride a Dual Sport KLR and I learned in my MC Class, one of the first things was to get your feet up ASAP. People that drag for a long time look ridiculous. I see scooter riders around here dragging at 30mph!

I live in a rural, mountainous area and people ride bicycles on these very narrow, windy, two-lane highways around here. No way in hell I would do that unless I was part of a special event where they actually close the road. It just takes one drunk guy coming back from the lake or someone taking a turn a little too fast and you're fucked.

Jeez, my worst fear riding....being ran over from behind.

I used to not wear a helmet when cycling...felt like a silly goose..but I dont ride without one now just for this reason.

That dude's helmet came in pretty handy there.

We used to call it bowling for people back in the day.
And there is a group of bicycle assholes that go out on a regular basis on the back roads here...Back roads that I take home from work. They get pissy that they cannot ride 4 abreast and yell at me when I, do as I was trained in drivers ED, toot my horn to alert them of my presence and drive around them at the speed limit. These assholes really tempt me to match speed with them and roll down my window, engage the lead one in conversation, and gradually edge the car towards a ditch.

That's similar to my fear, being caught riding a bicycle.

Yep. Before I even took my first class I learned the hard way. Came out of a toll booth with my feet dragging and my left foot caught the edge of a pothole. I was only going about 25-30 mph but it flung my leg back and up to where I thought it would kick me in the back of my head.

Feet up, losers.
