Be careful riding through residential areas

News flash for Louisville, Kentucky. Young male sport bike rider. Stretched swingarm crotch rocket. Lime green. High velocity collision with....you guessed it, a one story brick ranch house.

The house survived. They are still hosing the rider off the structure. No, the homewrecker did not survive.

If it is not broken, it can still be fixed

I'm sure it turned left in front of him and didn't see him...

F#$%ers fly up my street every couple of days, 25MPH speed limit.
Of course so does most everyone else, its the only street in the neighborhood without speed bumps, so the fire trucks can get to the highway faster.

According my friends Mom it was my fault as a passenger when we hit a house with her Corvair. Curvy road, bald-ish tires, too much speed, too little talent had nothing to do with it. Oh, the house was about 10-15 feet above the street level too. We kinda plowed uphill to get there!
Corvairs were so light they could almost fly!

Do you really think this has anything to do with being careful?

If that was here in the Greater Toronto Area they would drop the speed limit to 10 kph and give all the normal drivers tickets for doing 5kph over because of the actions of one.

I'm sure the rider's family will find this f#cking hilarious!

Sure the rider was stupid. Me, my kids, my brothers, my father and probably you too have done stupid stuff that could just as easily been fatal.

That he did it on a type of motorcycle that you can't help but look down your nose at somehow makes it justifiably funny?

Grow up.

There is humor in everything, morbid or otherwise. Some have a harder time seeing it than others.
Don't forget, this time around on the orb is not a dress rehearsal!

I have no sympathy for these morons because one of the maybe ten times in 8 years i parked my truck on the street instead of in the driveway some drunk kid came flying up the street in a civic, slammed into my silverado pushing it 30 feet, not 2 minutes after my family got out of it. And this street is more than three cars wide but you can only park on one side. $11,000 worth of damage.
