I have,and this is why my wife won't allow me to own an inline 4 powered bike,although,if I really wanted one,I could hide it over at my brothers house.

Last time I flicked traffic like this was on my 07 V-Rod in football traffic out on I75 at the end of the summer.I flicked for about 12 miles,no wheelies.
What was cool,was I had a pack of RR bikes following me.It's cool as hell to pass the state cops that are escorting the buses protecting the silly football fans from bombers knowing they aren't allowed to stop protecting,and chase me down.
I'd love to see what my V-Rod looks like as I flick past the 3 lane wide of 20mph idiots while 130 and higher is reading on my speedo.I'll bet it's just an orange streak.

I don't beleive that is possible in the USA. There is something differant about the mindset of cagers when it comes to lane splitting here. They will see you in the rearview mirror and close the gap just to teach you a lesson. I have had them move out of their lane to block the breakdown lane and force me into the grass. I commuted 35 miles on my 1098 for two years and it happened all the time. In europe they don't think you are disrespecting them because you got there a little sooner.

I was waiting for someone to open a car door and he go flying. Maybe I am just cynical, I just think people driving like that should be shot based on how it makes the rest of us look.

I am no perfect person, speed all the time. But when your blatantly driving like that it just causes the GOV to push more rules/regs on us to take away more of our rights as riders.

Yes this video is from overseas, but jack wagons do the same crap here. Even more so with tons of Soldiers here on FT. Bragg NC. They all get back from deployments, have a ton of cash. Buy a crouch rocket the first week back and act the fool to blow off steam.

The their widows are left to pick up the pieces, and everyone else in the unit suffers from the command being asses punishing the whole unit because of one person.

We have a thing were if no one dies while stateside in 82nd for 82 days we get a four day weekend as a good job pat on the back. It rarely happens.

So maybe watching this brings up other feelings. And I am sorry for the rant.

But the less people post this CRAP and the less people say WOW the less people will strive to do this thinking it's cool.

To the rider, your a A$$ where ever you are.

To the poster, thanks for keeping the viscous cycle going.

I am sorry to say we have potential organ donors here in the midlands (UK)
here is some of the evidence for the court. this was back in 2007
ok this is a bit tame, tame? yes it goes down hill very fast from here.
in vid 4 a black car almost gets him at 1:30 sec
the only thing keeping those pricks alive is not skill but luck. one day it will run out. then there families will be left to wonder why. Or they will take some poor blameless sod with them and some wife/husband/girl/ boy friend/mother/son/daughter will be left with a hole in there life. there is a place for stuff like this. the public road is not it

I split lanes all the time but not at huge speed differentials. Here is Kalifornica it is legal. The cagers move out of the way often which is surprising. The Rusky in the vid will perish soon.

That guy is pretty much ripping off a guy, now deceased, who was known as the Black Prince. His shtick was to see how fast he could lap Le Peripherique, the beltway around Paris. There is a reason the Black Prince is dead, but for sheer speed, and class, he puts this little Russian hoodlum to shame.


He nudges 180 mph on a public freeway.

Kind of hard to lighten up when I see death on a daily bases while deployed, and think it stupid to see good Soldiers die when back home doing stupid crap like this.

Maybe if you weren't so chill in your chair up in PA and saw how stupid this is you would feel the same.

I have rode around FT. Bragg and seen tons of riders on the side of the rode parked, while paramedics were pulling guys out of the woodline off the side of the highway here because they were being stupid like this.

So when you have seen what I have on a weekly/monthly bases then you can talk to me guy.
