Sorry, riding like idiots does not impress me, and does nothing to further our cause.
We have the spotlight on us enough as it is, clown acts like this don't help us at all.

I don't think they're riding as fast as it appears in the video. I've recorded rides and it always looks like we're going much faster then we are. Also, many Californians split lanes (including myself). I admit that traffic was moving fast & it wasn't necessary to zig zag around the cars, but I know a lot of people who ride the like that. They were splitting lanes in light-moderate traffic and they were never close enough to any cage to be dangerous. As far as standing on the floorboards, I have no issues with that either.

I think the problem is that it was posted by a new member. None of us really know him so we're quick to judge. Just my .02 cents.

I like that one guys riding trick of standing on his boards. It's cool............ not!

Anyhow, to each his own. I would like to see the video in normal speed. Would most likely change the whole perspective of it. Personally, I sometimes ride aggressive when riding alone or with someone else that I've ridden with a lot but never in a larger group or in moderate to heavy traffic. That's asking for trouble. I can see the fun in it though. Thanks for sharing.

To each their own, but I agree this gives riders a bad name. The video is definitely sped up from the original version but you can still tell they're passing other cars and each other well over whatever speed traffic is going. Not a fan but thanks for sharing.

I agree, the video looks like it's sped up a little bit.

With that said..............


There are old bikers. There are bold bikers. But, there are very few old, bold bikers.

I've been riding for 47 years..... probably because I don't ride like that.

Agreed, but regardless of how fast the video is played, it doesn't change the difference between the speed of the bikes vs the rest of the traffic.
All it would have taken was one startled driver to tag their brakes or change lanes(bikes lane splitting on both side of the same car)and there would have been one hell of a mess.
