Hard to tell. If he were parked instead of driving real S L O W I'd say that he was play-biking, going "vrrooom, vrrooom, vrrooom" and making arm-motions. But yes, it is some sorta gang sign.

Is that a car tire on the rear or a V E R Y worn bike tire? Hard to tell.

I hate those groups on the highway, we have real strict laws in Fl. thanks to them, like $1000.00 for having a wheel even a little off the ground on your first offense. They took the sense of humor away from the cops. Gives all sportbiker riders a bad name.

But as for the long life thing, I slipped in the shower once and damn near cracked my head on the ledge in the shower. Saved myself by bending my knees like an out of control snow skier.
Heart was racing as I realized I would have hit the back of my head right on that edge and could have died. It was then that I decided it was okay to ride streetbikes, I was dirt only as a kid and had promised the parents I had no interest in riding on the street. Meant it at the time. Rode a couple of friend's street bikes on occasion before that but really thought they were too dangerous until I almost died in the shower.

Short version-
Could be crossing a street, could be falling off a ladder could be lots of things that get you, when it's your time it's your time. Did a lot of crazy stuff as a kid, lucky to be alive.
