This video overflows with douchebaggery. (Disclosure - I BASE and ride bikes)

#1 He revs his shitkicker dirtbike over and over again. Great - it's loud. The throttle works. You're a douche.
#2 He trashes bike #1 in a canyon. I can guarantee that he didn't go down there afterward and get it out. He left it like a Snickers wrapper. More douchery.
#3 He never checks his open canopy. A single end cell closure or a line-over would have spun his ass right into the dirt. My cup runneth full.
#4 No riser grab. No toggle grab. No steering at any time. My cup is full.
#5 He has a 90 degree off-heading opening. Any more than that and this guy is plowing into the dirt, not the water.

My cup has runneth over with douchiness. Glad to know irresponsible morons like this exist. The herd needs thinning.
