Why ride a motorcycle? I have answers to the question, but the only answers that make sense to me, will make no sense whatsoever to the kind of person who would ask the question.

Nice video, but if I look at the falls on 1.24, 1.35 and 2.05 I can see why he thinks its dangerous. Especially at 2.05, he falls off for no apparent reason  ???

Aces!
Everyone I come across in cages they bought
they think of me and my wandering
but I'm never what they thought
got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts
I'm alive...

It was bred for racing, after all. It will devour rear tires and its lust for fuel will astound you. It will suffer indifference and carelessness very poorly. Like heroin and Asian girls, it's not for everybody, but when you absolutely, positively, GOTS to beat every m*****f****** in the race, accept no substitu
