Saw this on the V4MuscleBike site a few days ago.

Man - some people ....

Outta be a way to “thin out the herd” when crap like this happens!

I drive semi trucks over the road for 20 years now, closing in on 3 million miles. I have seen all kinds of crazy stuff on the road. But this, takes the cake. I have never seen something like this . Just plain unbelievable.

Video no longer available. But I saw some the funny ones with the same title.


When I bought my first fifth wheel, starting five years of full time RVing, I immediately paid $150 for a two hour lesson on towing. Excellent investment. Never ran into anything.

I get the same message when I click on it inside the post. BUT if I copy the video URL (right click on the video) and paste that in a separate browser tab or window it will play.

That is the worse example I have ever seen. I towed a Time Out motorcycle camper behind my GW and a Mini Mate camper behind my ST and was told by many about a friend of a friend who flipped their trailers pulling around a turn, like into a driveway or gas station. I only saw that happen once but never came close myself. I also towed a few U-Haul trailers during military moves. Kind of hard IMO to not notice what the trailer is doing back there. That guy must have been on something... driving impaired or asleep.

Just when you think you've seen everything. You can hear the poster calling out and honking his horn. I suspect the driver knows but didn't want to wait for a tow truck. And how did he bash in the rear door? Another fail?



Might be a bigger mess when that can of worms bursts open....
