Aside from this guy being a complete idiot while riding his motorcycle down Southern California’s infamous 405 freeway in rush hour traffic, it reminds me how much I miss riding.
I used to ride to and from work every day. It was fun…especially since I worked about 30 miles from home. It guaranteed me a nice ride each day…nice being relative of course. Riding in Southern California traffic isn’t for the faint of heart.
I feel free when I’m on a bike, and if you have never ridden a motorcycle, you won’t understand the feeling. There’s no way to describe it other than having a growing love for the road and finding out what’s beyond the next mile. I miss that wanderlust feeling.
The guy that made this video however isn’t the smartest of riders. In fact, he would piss off nearly every other biker out there along with those in their cages (car). He gives bikers a bad name. I lost count at the number of violations he racked up on this single ride home, which make me wonder…will he get a call from the cops because of this video? Could he?
I wonder exactly how long this video will be up because of that.
Splitting lanes is legal in California. The reasoning I hear is that motorcycles need the wind to keep their engines cool, and with Southern California traffic being so congested as times, motorcycles can split lanes to keep the wind cooling the engine.
Not sure if that’s factual or not…but I think if there was a chance of a motorcycle engine stalling in rush hour traffic…that’s not something I’d want to happen.
Enjoy your Friday people, and keep an eye out for people like this. There is nothing worse than seeing a biker go down.
