I Don't Always Drag Knee but When I Do, I Still Don't Lean

You've all seen these guys at least once on the road you take. They are the guys who often make it on Youtube, crashing silly in the most casual of scenarios, making more errors in a split second than others make in a whole riding year. These aren't even weekend warriors, at least not according to my definition of a weekend warrior.
If we won't use the quoting marks on warrior, I refer to these guys as seasoned fellows who know very well how to ride on a wide variety of roads and in pretty much any conditions... but have lives busy enough to only afford riding aggressively every now and then.

These chaps can be met throughout any bike segment, riding a liter Gixxer, adventure or dirt bikes and all. They've already put their bike through their paces so many times and they don't need to prove anything to anyone. Okay, maybe sometimes they just feel like proving something to themselves, but that's all. On the other hand...

Trying to do what skilled riders do often leads to a hospital bed

As for those who can't ride nowhere near enough what they see on a racing weekend at the track and are so far even from how a true weekend rider would ride on a good "let loose day"...

Well, it looks like most of these guys will always unknowingly choose to make fools out of themselves instead of riding like they feel to. Frankly, it's not a shame to learn how to ride, and nobody in their right mind will ever laugh at a fellow who is obviously doing his or her best to learn how to become better.

However, seeing such knee dragging "skill" only has the best of odds to become the laughing stock of the internet. Don't do this! Seriously, don't!
