Most of the wrecks I have seen is just general riding beyond your limits/general rider error.

look at all the top racers, they are being highly paid to show off...

everyone takes pride on their skills and rides. it's human nature to show it off. nothing wrong with that. it all depends on their maturity level. those that can control their urges have a better self-control. those that don't, darwin takes care of that.

in my opinion, the kids in FL show off because of their lifestyle (income level). they work minimum wage and the need for self assurement drives them to show off. those that earn a comfortable income show off by displaying their rides. something i learned in pysch class (maslov's hierarchy of needs).

That's one way to look at Maslov's theory... Not how I would, but it makes sense.

Or because there are no mountains, no canyons and therefore no twisty roads.

the main reason kids show off is because they're retards that dont know how stupid they are. may darwin remove them from our presence. but at least they keep us up to our necks in spare parts.

one of my kids have a learning disability. some consider him a retard. i hope darwin doesn't kill him off.

but anyways, i was one of those so called retards that show off on the streets. that was part of being young and stoopid. they will either die or grow up as well. maybe become a famous racer one day (i can honestly say, most of the pro riders were mischeavous on the street once).

I also think why the Florida kids might be considered showoffs is because well for bike riding Florida sucks if you want to do something besides cruise the strip. You don't have curvy mountain roads and all your roads are straight. You either take a 90degree right or 90degree left which likely involves a stop sign.

So basically the only thing there is to do in Florida is pop wheelies or go as fast as you can unless there is a road course for you to race on.

One of my buddies though is a showoff and I've seen him do tank wheelies in the rain at 90mph. He's crazy but he can ride and the only time he has dropped his bike was doing a donut in his driveway. His partner is also the same way. But they both spent their entire lives racing dirtbikes and showing off. Not saying they won't ever go down. But pretty amazing he hasn't so far.

We all show off in some shape/form/or fashion. As said its human nature.

I didn't think about that. I did google map central Florida and there were some curvy roads. Then when I looked at satellite photos I saw why. You have to dodge all the water holes. Pretty cool looking actually.

I was mainly refering to the coastal Florida which is basically what Florida is known for. From the handful of times I've been there it seems like you either go sharp left or sharp right.
