Krazy Kid


This young man lives dangerously. Driving well over the speed limit, weaving in and out of traffic, he crossed double-lines to pass our car. Stymied by a red light, we pulled up behind him. I was able to snap this picture before the light changed and he roared of in a cloud of dust. Hopefully he's got some guardian angels as he's going to need them!

That is a familiar scenario. I would not want to be the first on the scene if things go wrong. "The Young and the Reckless" perhaps?

I guess that's why they call them bikes 'crotch rockets' varooom varoom and off they go. At least he's wearing a helmet which will do him no good if he is too reckless. MB

Neat photo, Lowell. I echo Judy's comment.

This young man can be very happy if the police doesn't read your post today ;-)

Absolutely crazy, and wearing just jeans and a t-shirt? Madness.

You sure he isn't French?

I like motorcycles. I also rode a small scooter. Safety must come first. For motorcycles to pay twice. This person often makes a mistake only once. Nice spring days! Petr.

Oh to be young and immortal!

It's dark humor, but we call drivers who speed and navigate like this organ donors.

Andy said...

I have the same problem as you. Wherever I go, the bad drivers follow me.

I know this all too well. I shudder when I see riders without helmets in Belgrade, all too often with a girl behind in a short skirt, bare legs...oh, scrape, scrape, squish.

I've had a bike to and I was very stupid too when I was younger. :-(
I wish him the same luck I've had !
I agree with Kay who call such driver "organ donors"...

Great shot, Lowell! I've never seen an "Under 21" license plate before. Is that unique to Florida?

When I was in college I had a small motorcycle. I saw an ad in the college paper from someone who was selling a bunch of motorcycle stuff. I went to his dorm room to buy the stuff. He answered the door standing with a crutch and with one leg recently amputated due to a motorcycle accident.

It was a sobering way to begin my couple of years of motorcycle ownership.

Kay's comment, while dark, is totally appropriate. Interesting that your readers from all over the globe have seen the same thing.

Maybe he was late for school. I know how kids can't wait to take notes.
