Riding that lead sled is safe as can be. It could cut a freight train in half. Even at it's remarkably slow speed.
Lead sled? Remarkably slow speed? NO bike, figure of speech notwithstanding, is going to "cut a freight train in half".
I ride a 750lb dry-weight cruiser that`ll do 135mph without even WORKING at it, fully loaded for a long haul with 100lbs of luggage. The best I could hope for at a "remarkably slow speed" (riding ATGATT, mind you) crash would be a few nasty bruises. More likely, at least a couple broken bones.
That fool? He`s a full second of reaction time and motion from grabbing or footing the brakes, no capability for quick maneuvering with his feet (!) on the handlebars, and don`t even get me STARTED on the thong sandals and no helmet.
The only good thing that comes out of morons who ride like this are multiple organ donationsâ€¦ of whatever doesn`t happen to be smeared across 3 mil

I ride, AGATT (look it up). But props to him for enjoying the ride. Its all risk management. Guy in full safety gear on bike says he is unsafe, guy in a car says gear guy is unsafe, guy in a pick-up truck says car guy is unsafe, guy in a semi-truck says pick-up guy is unsafe, guy at home scared to leave the house says everybody is unsafe.... F it all just stay at home and cover yourself in bubble wrap.
