    Slichtly increased playback speed imho, especially were he moves through the traffic jam, but still amazing skills.

    I agree, nightsky.
    Lane splitting by two wheel vehicles is legal in California. There may be other states, I'm not sure. Although what this guy was doing, clearly wouldn't fall within the legal status of that law! Was impressive though, I give him props and shame him at the same time. *Hangs head low and nods in a "no" fashion*

    There are others, ghost rider was popular a while back at least.

Although it was an incredible rush, I realized that my life wouldn't continue for very long if I kept riding. Sold my bike & figured I'd get another when I developed some 'maturity'. Haven't gotten there yet ...

    For more adrenaline-fueled videos - google 'wingsuit base jumping'.

    This guy looks like what you'll easily find on typical nice night on the Southern State Parkway, Belt Parkway, LIE, Sunrise Highway, and many urban areas of good ol NY. Yeah, they die off, but not fast enough apparently as you'll always see dare-devil like stunts like this...

    And I don't believe that video was sped up in any way, R1's and many a "foreign" bike are that fast....
