Scooter fail – safety gear is there for a reason

So basically this guy is trying to look like a pro racer… on his scooter. Nice protective foot wear he’s got there as he comes round the corner and trys some flat tracking, using his foot! I guess you can see where this one is going…

It’s always amusing that everyone assumes scooters to be really safe and you don’t need to have any protective gear on unlike motorbikes – the amount of times I see an idiot on a scooter going to the train station wearing only his suit, at some point statistics will catch up with you as you either get over confident and ride like a dick or you’re on the floor and the last words you here are ‘sorry I didn’t see you mate’.

Anyway, this one falls into the category of ‘riding like a dickhead’, at least he was wearing half the gear…
