    Everybody crashes.
    Some get back on and ride again.
    Some don't.
    Some can't.

    This guy sure has great riding skills but an idiot nevertheless for the way he rides. Wonder how long he will live
    Better biking begins with me!

    Where I found this had a poll going:-

    So, is this guy

    a sh!t-hot rider
    more lucky than the luckiest lucky guy ever
    a blithering sh!t-head moron

    My answer was that he was all three. He handles the bike well and is a good rider, also very very lucky that somebody didnt spot a gap in front of him and dive across for it, and a blithering sh!t-head moron to even imagine that he would still be alive by the end of the year.

    Amen. Rides like he's got a "mega urgent SW6 - EC1" on board, doesn't he.

    Chunks of that (esp. from 4:15 onwards) are a real trip down memory lane. Makes me realise how blessed I am to still be here, despite myself.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

    You can't do this on the N1.

    People will flash their headlights at you, swear at you, cut you off, and aim for you.

    As a new rider, I am not impressed by his "riding skillz" at all. If you want to be an idiot and endanger your life, do it where only yours is at stake.

    I seriously expected to see an accident somewhere in the clip. Some scary/stupid stuff. But it begs the question.
    How many of us do things like (in overtaking 1 or 2 cars) now and again and son't even realise it sometimes?
    Ride behind a bike weaving and watch how close its mirrors can get to other vehicles. I'm sure it looks the same for ourselves, we don't always realise it.
    This is a good video for eductaion me thinks.
