dumbest thing for me.
I have done a lot of stupid shit but most of it off the road.
When I was 13 I bought a DR250 of a bloke in his 70s for $200, it had all the road gear but the rego etc was expired, he had had it parked up for nearly ten years as he developed a problem with his eyes and couldnt ride or drive.
I lived, at the time, in a semi rural area, the township consisted of about 6 shops and 1200 people, and was located about ten minutes drive out of a large town. bonus was, there were never cops around.
I would get on my bike, tell mum I was taking it to the river, and go try out dumb shit.
One time, I got it up to about 90km/hr, going down the street that runs in front of the school (it was a weekend so no kids about) stuck my feet over the bars, then just laid all the way back. I had jeans a t shirt and a helmet, couldnt see where I was going, how fast, or if there was any traffic coming. Thought I was shit hot.
Wouldnt do it again!!!
