I didn't mean it was in bad taste, bad taste would be if it was a picture of him getting speared by the bike, i just meant its a pretty standard picture so any caption people come up with won't be very funny... below is an example of a proper picture to caption, also note, ANY of picture involving Biaggi will also work
