Remember Kyle Katsandris? Of course you do; he’s the guy who jumped his Kawasaki KX450 over the 60 freeway in Los Angeles not too long ago, causing a buzz all over social media and the internet as a whole (and also sparked an investigation by the California Highway Patrol). Well, it appears that his internet fame has caught up with him, as his latest stunt didn’t go so well.

According to reports, Katsandris’ latest trick was to jump over train tracks in Simi Valley, California, following the footsteps of Colin Morrison, who successfully completed the jump three times a decade ago, twice over a moving train. Except in Katsandris’ attempt, a bump at the lip of the jumped launched him over the handlebars, where he then crashed on the other side. He’s currently in critical but stable condition.

You people at Motorcycle.com are a special kind of stupid. Is this really the kind of publicity you want for a motorcycle related forum? It's bad enough idiots actually do this kind of illegal stuff, but you aren't doing the motorcycling community any favors by bringing it to the spotlight with the power of the media and the real bottom line is you are merely propagating and encouraging the same behavior from additional attention seekers to do the same thing.

I get a kick out of their posts as well. :D
@Wibbly - You can thank the gang at Verticalscope, who have taken over (ie - "bought out") just about every major automotive/motorcycling related Internet message board forum over the past several years, see here:

VerticalScope.com

"...VerticalScope acquires established enthusiast-oriented web properties and domain names on a regular basis. We have a particular interest in purchasing web sites, online communities and forums in the Automotive, Powersports, Power Equipment, Sports, Pets, and Technology verticals..."

Verticalscope certainly "mainstreams" their message board content with their advertisements, articles and whatnot - meh.
@LDH® I'm sure you'll love their next article to hit the board ! j/k :D
