Just a few of my favories.

#1 - Craig Jones Stunt School Buell stunts etc. Helpful for learning wheelies, etc. Also shameless Buell plug.



#2 - More Stunt School



#3 - Buell stunt riding in Germany

This is why smart riders don't try to ride the same pace, or seemingly even slower in this video, than 98% or 99% of the traffic on any given highway.

This ain't a form of relaxation, folks; commuting is about self-preservation and keeping them away from you. It's far, far easier to be the one approaching when a cager like this silver car cuts over (brakes and evasive maneuvers) vs. allowing yourself to get caught up to by a cager - and this is a perfect example of a commuter who is doing it the wrong way.

I did 22,000 miles of work commuting in just about a year, on I-95 where it's an eight to ten lane highway with far too many old drivers, drugged drivers, drunk drivers, crazy drivers and negligent drivers. If you ever see me happily put-putting along like this guy was, please take away my motorcycle license.

IMHO, the motorcyclist in the fast lane seemed to be doing more things right tan this guy - not limited to working with one lane and a shoulder, speed, and staying the fuck away from cagers.

Some get it... Some don't.

In Texas several cars would have stopped to check on the fallen rider.

This video does show the benefits of the ATTGAT Power Ranger rider compared to the 'Look at me I'm a badass' Pirate rider.

Imagine the results had this rider had wearing a bandanna, sunglasses, tshirt, jeans and a scowl. He would have been smeared on the pavement like a bug on a windshield.

For freeway riding in urban areas, a motorcycle belongs in the left lane, going slightly faster than the flow of traffic. Reason being, approximately two-thirds of motorcycling accidents occur in a filed of vision of 11 to 1 o'clock.

Hope he learned his lesson, between two vehicles is a bad place to be.
