The F1 drivers were supposed to stay far enough away from the camera operators on a stationary boat, but Hamilton came in close, executed a sharp turn and sprayed the whole crowd with water.

As a result, widespread flooding occurred up and down the east coast. One enterprising soul in Oceanside, NY decided to make the most of the situation by taking his jet ski out for a little romp down Lawson Boulevard.
Every so often, we like to remind everybody out there that being green does not necessarily mean that you can't have any fun.

These are the motorcycles that initiated the term "cruiser" as opposed to just Harley... but enough history.
