Strange coincidence that this took place in Raceland, LA.

Default LET US SPILL OUR FOURTIEZ ON THE GROUND FOR OUR DEAD HOMIE

WHO DIED WITH THE NOBLE SHOUT UPON HIZ LIPZ: AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!



I WROTE THIZ POEM WITH HELP FROM SOME DUDE WHO'Z BRAIN IZ IN A JAR IN ENGLAND, BUT HE'Z PRETTY COOL. HE MADE ME TAKE THE CAPZ LOCK KEY OFF BECAUSE HE'Z GAY, I THINK.



CHARGE OF THE STUNT BRIGADE

BY MR. ALLCAPS



Half a block, half a block

Half a block onward,

All on they back wheelz

Rode the fresh stuntaz.

"Wheelie the Stunt Brigade!

"Charge for the camera!" he said:

Into the Expressway of Death

Rode the fresh stuntaz.



"Forward, the Stunt Brigade!"

Was there a homie dismay'd?

Not tho' the homiez knew

Someone was buggin:

Their'z not to make reply,

Their'z not to be all trippin':"Why",

Their'z but to stunt or die:

Onto the Expressway of Death

Rode the fresh stuntaz.



Cousinz to right of them,

Homiez to left of them,

*****ez in front of them

Buck Wild and Bumpin';

Storm'd at with shot and shell,

Fly they rode and well,

Onto the Expressway of Death,

Into the Mall of Hell

Rode the fresh stuntaz.



Flash'd all their chromed wheelz bare,

Flash'd as they turn'd in air,

Buggin' all the boyz up in there,

Charging an army, while

All the world wonder'd:

Plunged in the burn-out smoke

Right thro' the line they broke;

Homie and Gangsta

Reel'd from the tight-azz shiznitz they pulled

Shatter'd and sunder'd.

Then they rode back, but not

Not all the fresh stuntaz.



5-0 to right of them,

Guidence Counselorz to left of them,

Dey Momz behind them

Trippin n' Dissin;

Storm'd at with shoutz of "Chill!",

While GSXR1000 and homie fell,

They that had bumped so well

Came thro' the Expressway of Death

Back from the Malls of Hell,

All that was left of them,

Left of the fresh stuntaz.



When can they flava fade?

O the dope-azz video they made!

All the homiez wondered.

Honor the video they made,

Honor the Stunt Brigade,

Noble fresh stuntaz.

While it is never a good thing when someone dies, as somebody already said, this is what happens when you put a bunch of high risk factors toguether.

The repercussions will be felt all across the sport, sooner or later, and the loosers will be the long time and true motorcyclists, this squids are never in for the long run, it is just a testosterone thing!

My two cents.

"The point? Motorcycling is inherently dangerous. "





Uh...sorry? A teenager struck and killed on the middle of a highway by his wheelying buddy makes no point whatsoever that has any relation to 'motorcycling.'



If you had said "The point? Standing in the middle of a highway while videotaping a friend wheelying is inherently dangerous," then I'd be with you.



More to the heart of this particular item: "Kids do alot of inherently dangerous stuff, and sometimes they get killed as a result."

Default The last mistake he'll ever make.

Print magazines got nuthin' on this. All we need is the Highwayman and we can call it a wrap.

Seriously, I always say that everyone is entitled to do one REALLY stupid thing in their life ... and as I get older I am considering upping that to two or three or four. It's a shame when instead of getting a little wiser you just get dead.

Standing in the middle of a busy highway with a video camera is dangerous no matter who's driving on it.

Man I am sick of stunting and stuntaz.



Going fast and crashing is one thing, not smart but at the very least understandable. We all like to go fast. Dying by getting hit by your buddy while you're attempting to immortalize his moronic behavior is stupid. It doesn't take much common sense to successfully videotape some action from a safe distance, and for crying out loud, when you've seen one wheelie you've seen them all. You're not breaking any new ground here. Stunting was played out the moment I finished watching the original Las Vegas Xtreme video.



Val Rossi didn't get to be world champion by doing the longest stand up wheelie. If we're going to get hurt and die emulating somebody it should be him, not the Star Boyz.

Funny you shoud mention Torque.



I worked as an extra on the film and watched as their stunt crew worked sans-helmets. They also had principal actors on bikes with nothing protecting their gleaming smiles but air.



Not much seperates them from some kid with a mini-dv camera but better equipment.



As for protecting people from thier own idiocy, why bother? The problem usualy takes care of itself.
