Doing wheelies in a pack cost this kid serious hospital time.

Mr. dumb ass could have been killed and could have hurt one of his friends. I'm careful who I ride with. Getting rammed from behind has always been a fear of mine. Mostly while stopped. Hopefully, lesson learned.

This happened to a friend of mine a long time ago.
He was on a ride with a group of guy's and another bunch of guy's were going to go with them.
My friend was in the middle lane and one of the other guy's that was meeting them on the hi way got on his bike going through the gears up the on ramp looking over his left shoulder NOT looking in front of him ran right into my friend taking both of them out and my buddy ended up with luckily only a broken leg!

Glad to see no one else was injured.
The guy used the quad's rear tire as a launch ramp.
If he had his wits about him, he may have been able to land it, FMX style

Happened during a '500 bike ride out'! Stunting in a the middle of a group that size is not going to have a good outcome!

That being said, a good pair of riding boots would have probly lessened the severity of his ankle & foot injuries....his sneakers weren't gonna help even if they had stayed on.

Glad that he is OK...relatively speaking of course.

My biggest fear is riding in a group, and someone go down in front of me, and then i run into them because I cant get it shut down in time.

A couple years ago we were at Thunder, riding back to Somerset from Jim & Jimmies. We were riding 2-up on the Max. There were a number of bikes riding down the road together. Some moron decides to pass me on the right while I was in the right side of the road. He was laughing as he passed us. While there was a bit of room, and he managed to get by us without incident, I absolutely didn't expect the lame brained move. I knew he was behind me, but didn't expect the guy was gonna do something so dumb.

All it takes is one idiot to ruin everyone's day..

I would have had to speak to him about his behavior when you stopped. Unsafe maneuvers aren't appreciated.

Open-wheeled racecars have this 'launch' happen frequently, when their tires overlap. It's where nerf bars got invented, installed between the front and rear wheels to prevent this type of loss of control, though as this guy did, he climbed right-up the wheel of the quad, from behind.

That quad made a pretty stupid move as well by swurving over. I got an earful from my dad when I was a kid riding gravel roads about switching lanes without signaling with your arm and checking that it's open. We used to ride trails with up to 15 riders and spacial awareness was key to not colliding with someone. What the heck are quads doing in the streets anyway? Is that legal in some states?
