Always a good idea to share your bad riding publically on YouTube, isn't it?! Facepalm emoticon

I'm not sure which bit of 'full control' young Jack means as he crosses into the opposite lane and nearly puts his head through the windscreen of the oncoming car...

I remember when that first happened and wondered if anything would come of it.

Why do people try to go as fast as they can on a "Dangerous Road"?

Call me crazy, but I don't get it.

Maybe it's because they can't afford or refuse to pay for access to a race track built for this purpose?

I suppose you can define "full control" as "hadn't hit anything yet."

Reminds me of a story from a few years ago here in Oklahoma. A guy posted a video of himself doing nearly 200 mph in his Corvette on the highway. The video got reported to the police and he got arrested.

Some possible reasons.

1) Because they don't care.

2) youth and invincibility.

3) youth and stupidity.

4) all of the above.

+1 Agreed

Everyone reading this has done something idiotic at some point in their life. I'm always amused how everyone piles on when someone gets the business. Thankfully no one was hurt or killed and we've had the opportunity to review the video and hopefully won't do something stupid ourselves in the future. This guy is getting what he deserved but it's ok to drive home after having a few drinks at dinner?

Tracks are there for a reason.

Luckily he wasn't showing off with a pillion.

Yeah, but the smarter ones realize 'I blew that one'. Jack still thinks he was 'in the right' literally and figuratively.

Because he passed at least 3 "slow" warnings painted on the road? I don't know, but maybe this guy does. PERFECT landing!
