What a moron! He gives motorcyclists a bad name. Take his driver's license for a few years and never allow him to have a cycle endorsement.

Unbelievable that he would go into a neighborhood at that speed. At least it wasn't bus time like the crash in Dexter Crossing.

only a 115mph?? kid should've either had a tune up done on that joke of a bike, or he should've just sold it for scrap... and if its all he could afford, skip the purchase and realize bikes that are that old are just money pits.... regardless this is what we motorcycle riders commonly refer to as a "squid" #buyanewbike
