This clip shows an idiot doing a u-turn in a blind corner as I came around it on my bike. It's not incredibly interesting, but it gets a lot of views and I get paid ad revenue. My new Macbook Pro is a direct result of revenue for this video, so don't bet on me taking it down because people whine that it's not interesting enough without me crashing my bike. I don't care if you like it or not. If you take the time to comment but don't read the description, you're probably too dumb to understand the situation anyway.

I'm constantly amused by the people that comment here. I feel as though being on youtube subjects me to people on the intellectual level of most Jerry Springer guests.

Fire away! Tell me I'm stupid for uploading the video, don't know how to ride, etc. Internet experts are my favorite. I love the people who argue that illegal u-turns before/after a corner are acceptable. I also love the people who claim to be riders but also claim that a little wave at another rider is dangerous, a signal denoting an illegal u-turn ahead, or my attempt to be 'cool'.

Likewise, I love the critique of my riding style. I don't lean off enough.... in a blind corner.... at a slow speed.... wearing jeans and not leathers. I'll be sure to practice my 35mph knee dragging on blind corners. Oh... and my latest favorite... the guy that argues proper cornering technique should start with me riding the inside line as opposed to setting up for a textbook outside-apex-outside turn.

Thus far, youtube has taught me; that bikers waving at each other isn't a wave, but a signal that means a car is about to do a u-turn in front of you; 35mph is too fast on a 55mph road with a 35mph corner; knee dragging is commonplace for a casual ride in jeans around a slow blind corner; and my favorite.... riders should never set up for a corner on the outside of their lane.

Keep 'em coming!

Oh, and the Apple haters... I'm with you... they're overpriced and over-hyped by the fanboys and hippsters. I'm neither. I'm a software developer that needed a new computer and figured I'd go Apple so I can try porting my 'droid app to iOS for additional revenue. Need a Mac to do that.
