Abuse of Motorcycle

As a responsible motorcyclist who puts around 30K on my bike yearly (and year-round), nothing frustrates me more than those who give nothing to the passion but a bad name. While there are some responsible stunters on sportbikes, the vast majority (at least in my experience) seem to be overconfident hotheads which absolutely no regard for theirs, or anybody else’s safety. While pulling a wheelie down the Interstate wearing nothing but a tank top and flip flops may seem like a good way to express your rugged individualism, you’re putting the other people on the road in danger, as well as inconveniencing the paramedics who have to come squeegee you off the pavement. Furthermore, this kind of behavior only encourages those who wish to view motorcycles in a negative light, making my life more difficult. While I am hesitant to take pleasure in someone else’s pain, I can honestly say this guy deserved what happened to him:
