How NOT to pop the clutch on a motorcycle

During a gathering w/ my local club, we happened upon a guy whose motorcycle's battery was dead. Tried to push start it several times, but to no avail. The guy then had the brilliant idea of being towed behind a vehicle to try and pop the clutch...

You can guess the rest.

I'm still laughing!

Damn squids make the rest of us riders look bad. Oh well, it was just an Aprillia, not anything worth a damn.
