Line Splitting - an episode from "Short Life Span Theatre"
« on: November 09, 2010, 02:49:14 pm »
OK, so some of you okes like to line split.  However, after watching this video, you may cringe and reconsider your line splitting skills.  I admit that I don't have the nerve for that kind of riding.  :mwink:

Line splitting: a crazy or a talent biker?

I have only one question:  "How do his giant balls fit between the cars?"

Holy crap that guy has no sense of self preservation !!!

I commute every day and lane split, but no where near those speeds or in the face of oncomming traffic....  ???

I was cringing at every moment....

I'm sure he's dead by now....   :o
Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night Tongue tied and twisted just an earth bound misfit. I

Would love to see this guy pitted against the legendary Ghostrider on his Stockholm to Upphsalla run...
If you can remain calm while those around you are panicking, then you clearly don't understand the situation.

This was posted on the forum a few months back. I think the video is also speeded up. Not very impressed  :deal:

It is somewhat impressive though. Having owned a superbike before, I can see how you can become "desensitized" to that feeling of fear.

It actually is quite a rush!! Adrenalin is really pumping. The bigger the risk, the awesomer the ride! Obviously I've never done this sort of thing.

But there is a point where your knaters outmatch your luck, as there are just too many variables out of ones control, and then you are very dead. It's why I prefer not to commute. I get adventurous, take chances, and I could get killed, as will this oke if he doesn't tone it down.

I could not stop watching this in morbid facination. He is freaking stupid. Must have scared the crap out of a lot of cagers. No wonder cagers don't like us.

I like the music though.

I do a lot of commuting through traffic, this includes lane splitting, but this video is insane.
Clearly this guy has a death wish, being maimed or just plain dead seems not to trouble him at all!!

This was posted on the forum a few months back. I think the video is also speeded up. Not very impressed  :deal:

Have a look at the movement of the key, I doubt it was speeded up.

Agreed not sped up. Look at the key ring and the rearview mirrors.  :lamer:

Filtering on the M25 :


Note how the cars on the right just naturaly move over to allow the bike through. No hassle, no issue, all part of the normal commute...

Did this daily for a few years
