US 129 was getting new lines when we where there Saturday. Probably not the best timing for road work, but I had to laugh at these shots. They made it clear that the work was going on, but what can I say? People are stupid.

Looks to me like guy on bike got slippery on wet paint and instinctively put foot down dirt bike style to try to save it?
Should not touch the lines anyway as even a bit of moisture on it at angle can ruin your day.

i have come to the firm conclusion that most people should only be allowed to travel in mass transit while strapped into a baby carrier!

Grew up on dirt bikes. My buddy Greg MacFast did this at my first Bash and explained that he had grown up on dirt bikes and they use to put a foot down in corners and when he would go in too hot he might throw his foot down out of habit.

I know the wet paint is slippery and cause a spill, but his wheels got no business touching the line if it was a dry:poke:

If his wheels on the line that means his head on torso are on the oncoming side of traffic good way to get your head ripped off. :banghead:

Forward by the front wheel as a dirt version of dragging your knee in a corner. But you stick your foot straight down, catch it on something, and have it pulled back far enough for the rear wheel to get it.. It will quickly become apparent why it's not a good idea even on a dirt bike.
Speedway or flat track racing is about the only place where sticking your (left) foot straight down is a common practice.
