Yeah, "when" and not "if" is correct!

IDIOT - I'd open a door on him JUST for spite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing against cycles, folks - when driven properly AND respectfully!

According to some of the "comments" below the vid, the guy has already become road pizza.

He must have been pretty far outside of town. I don't think I have ever seen traffic that lite in Moscow. He definitely has a limited lifespan.

Guys like him piss me off. I'm a sport bike rider. Probably not your typical sport bike rider in that I am almost 50 yrs old. Yes, I definately enjoy the handling capabilities of my motorcycle. But I don't get extreme about it. If I want to get really crazy, I save it for the Motocross track (I ride that too). Furthermore, I never ever do anything risky when there are other motorists in sight. I like a good counter steer on a sharp curve on a desolate two lane highway. But when I'm riding amongst the public, I go no faster than your typical blue hair.

In other words, guys like that, give guys like me a bad image. Jerk ! ! !

One state that "used to/ I think still does" allow bikes to ride the dotted line between vehicles is California, maybe that's the case where that video was shot.

So what do you figure the bike is, a Ducati?

edit: the cops in St. Martin drive Exactly like that biker did/ does in the same volume of traffic.

A few years ago, I was sitting in traffic on the Cross Bronx Expressway(an oxymoron if there ever was one), and we moved along less than 5mph...I got passed by two croch rocket jockies, and a HD. A mile down the road, I see two cops standing in the dotted line...pulling over bikers. They had a flat bed tow truck on the shoulder and it was full of bikes...LoL
Padded van with guys inside and the what musta been half the precint...
Never seen anything like that before...or again.

According to the title of the video, the bike is an R1. An R1 is a 1000cc Yamaha Sportbike. Even though it's a little blury in the video, just to the right (that's starboard for you boat-a-holics) of the steering stem nut on the top triple clamp, you can see the trade mark Yamaha triple tuning fork insignia.
