Or you could just say, screw this, and actively tempt fate.

The KillaCycle is the fastest electric vehicle in existence currently, meaning it's sort of dangerous. I'm sure you can't guess what happened next.
On Thursday Dube did a “burn out” in front of the
If you think I'm taking this too lightly, why don't you get TG Daily's take on it. Here's my favorite line from them:
Luckily we were able to interview Dube before the crash.Well that's good. We wouldn't want his potential death to distract us from the important things, like why in the hell someone would try to ride this thing in congested LA traffic.
Dube fatefully told us that the batteries are “more powerful than anything else” on the market. Well they were indeed the most powerful because they hurtled Dube and his bike into another vehicle.
And just to top it all off, TG Daily got the whole thing on tape, including Dube sprawled out on the concrete. Glad they had the boom mike over him as well.
Despite this sobering accident, Kellen Winslow Jr. still immediately rush ordered 3 KillaCycles.
