Another reason motorcycles and idiocy don't mix. Everytime I see a video like this, I think about Darwin's "natural selection". This is nature's way of weeding out the gene pool for the rest of us, ensuring survival of the species. Stupid hurts!

And tsk tsk. He ruined a perfectly good motorcyle!

Wow, really makes you think about the speed at which to take the corners...I guess hiway speeds during cornering would tend to do that though....

probably a highway camera. don't know about other states but CA freeways have them all over and so does most of Europe (they're called traffic control cameras) they are supposed to be for the Transportation Department to watch traffic conditions but I know they are also used to verify law breakers. CHP will show up in court with tapes from the cameras where they pulled you over.

But the way this was zoomed in and out, and panned from left to right and back makes you wonder. Are there transportation guys sitting in rooms just playing with cameras all day? What a boring job. Slit my wrists.
