    RIP my ass,

    i could be wrong, but a dirt bike on the street at night.. no fucking place to be and most likely stolen... one less cunt to wake me up at 2am.

    this kind of thing is becoming a real problem and these people need to wake up to them selves

    is the link wrong?

    Major Crash officers are investigating the fatal crash, which occurred at about 5.30pm on Monday afternoon.

    Plenty of people legally ride registered dirt bikes on the road every day. Who the fuck are you to decide they deserve to die based on the type of bike they choose to ride?

    Nothing on the article says it was anything but a registered vehicle, and it looks like its probably a perfectly street legal drz400 to me...

    It's definitely a motocross bike. Unlicenced, and shouldn't have been there. And, good luck with knobby tyres on bitumen.

    The buckle on the front wheel would imply that he's hit something (eg tree) bloody hard.

    People riding motocross bikes around on the road is become more common. Very common with aboriginals.

    That shit doesn't do any of us a favour - just pisses everyone off, and creates more general anti-bike sentiment.

    One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    My bad. Clearly he deserved to die then. Play on.

    So, should we bring back the death penalty for traffic offices then?

    Fishing for an argument much? Nobody said he deserved to die, they just implied sympathy wasn't deserved.
    As Phildo said, this sort of shit makes people hate riders, I see it in the scowls from people while riding my DRZ.
