    All Money and No Talent!!!

  • zipidachimp

    better than me: all ambition and no talent, scary!

  • Tom

    Obviously, he wanted to go driftin!

  • L2C

    He wanted to get the temperature of those tires up to 11. *snicker*

  • Jayson

    He did save it, but still pretty funny.

  • We need an expression for track days that’s analagous to hunters’ expression ‘buck fever’.

  • RJ

    Ahh, JenningsGP. It’s where the Pro’s go…. ;)

  • At a Medium Pace

    I’m surprised this didn’t happen to Ben Spies last year.

  • Chaz Michael Michaels

    he pulled a “Pedrosa”

  • motogpdr

    precisely why i quit riding track days at JenningsGP!

  • prich

    Man! Good double-save on his part. That got loose for a moment there. GoPros – Used to be you can make a dumb mistake and you’d laugh it off to yourself. Now the entire world laughs at you.

    Not an easy thing to do.
    Nice to see the rice burners comments in early. Not a surprise from the chav members of motorcycling.

    Well saved though.

  • This is a local FL bike-only track… Jennings GP.. looks like the Ducati day… LOL

  • Nothing wrong with Jennings.. as long as you avoid all groups besides expert. Jennings is a nice, relaxing place though, real low key.

  • Max

    I think it was more like, “Hey Everyone, WATCH THIS…………….hold my beer”. Guess you really can’t by talent?

  • Halfie30

    How is being excited to get on the track, and accidentally leaving your tire warmers on a guage of talent?! The guy obviously made a good save there, and probably took the aggression out on the track. Everyone saying this guy has no talent is clueless. Literally…. LOL

  • TonyS

    Shit happens. Been there myself. At least he is out riding….

  • gabe

    If you can’t pay attention to the “little things”…is he in the right frame of mind to go fast? How is this different than the guy who forgets to put gas, tighten his oil drain bolt/filler, or check tire pressures. I am not saying it doesn’t happen (happens to someone almost every trackday I go to) but there is no real reason to be absent minded right before you’re going on a live track.

    Maybe on this day his ambition did outweigh his talent….

  • TonyS

    Well I have been to Jennings when someone was actually killed at a trackday and it’s didn’t have to do with tire warmers, drain bolts, filters, or tire pressure. Just people riding over their heads, that’s what scares me at a track day.

    The guy is newbie, it’s obviously the intro group – look at the bikes in the frame, license plates & taped over lights. Give him a break. He is never going to make this mistake again.

  • gabe

    A newbike with tire warmers. Automatic eye roll.

  • TexusTim

    very funny..I feel for the dude he is now humiliated on a global level…bawawawawawahaha !

  • KHS1

    Say what ya want… but that was a decent save.

  • D

    First time I ever rode on a track, I was so nervous I forgot to put my sheild down until I was on the straight and couldn’t see anything!!! It seems impossible that I would forget that but I did.

    For a tire warmer it had pretty decent grip! Probably cuz it was up to temp (ha)….where’d the cord go? Whoever took the bike off the stand must’ve noticed a cord attached? Unless it was Stevie Wonder?

    Good times.
