Story as I heard. A group ride in Mosow celebrating the end of the riding season. Someone braked..one person ran into the back of him...and the rest is your typical chain reaction

Somebody riding a little close and/or not paying attention.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

Ok, after looking at all the pictures.. kinda like a time line.. either they were going too fast to react, or there was some serious vodka being enjoyed.. to watch one group after another dump their load, lock up the breaks, eat pavement, it's a little insane.

99 ZRX1100 - tons of mods and still slow but FUN / 07 Yami FZ1 for the wifie.

That would suck, especially on a bridge.

The only thing nessecary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

"sometimes in order to truly live life you must risk it."

You hit the lights, I hit the gas...


THERE ARE ONLY THREE SPEEDS, FAST, VERY FAST, AND OH SHIT!

No question about it. A lot of "not paying attention" going on. They got used to lookin at the bike in front of them, and trusting that person to actually be paying attention. There were several accidents, in one pic you can see a body flying through the air. But basically it boils down to group ride chain reaction created by not paying attention. Also there are a LOT of LONG black skid marks. WAY too much back brake action goin on there.

I really like the guy who said "F this.. I'll take my chances on the OTHER SIDE of the highway"
