Holy fuck....even in my bad younger days never did anything like that and I sure travelled that highway a lot. Video is open to comments on YouTube, watch out Joe Blow I am coming.

Ooops looks like Saanich PD also is...

Saanich police say they are investigating the incident.

Of course now he's notorious and all over the TV and internet, he's probably high-fiving all his idiot buddies.

I think he's actually on the Island Highway somewhere around Nanaimo. The Pat Bay doesn't have the wide grass boulevard between north and south lanes.

These type of vids are all over the interweb. Don't see what the big deal is. Young guy, fast bike, no fear. We have all been there and done that once in our lives. Hell, I was doing it myself last weekend to a lesser degree

You are right...changed it after I watched it again. Sure I have been there.....years ago but the way them morons drive on SVI, no way I'd even think of riding between the lanes, but my bike only goes 250. I just don't like incitation, had some bad consequences them videos in our neighborhood and pissing off the usually tolerant locals big time.

That one seems to have a link to BCsportbiker.com, anyone here signed on there just to see if he is getting high fives???

I did that on Saturday on my xt225...

My dad always told me, "...if you're gonna drive fast, because you are; do it on a dry summer Sunday morning just after sunrise. You'll have less chance of killing yourself and somebody else. Plus, no need to weave."
This was back in the day before 40 over had your car impounded. Who knew a 75 Toyota corolla could do 178km/h?

Actually that is the island highway heading west from Helmcken road out past Thetis lake towards Langford. And for those that don't know; right where he was indicating 300km is a very popular spot where Langford RCMP like to collect revenue.

Doing 300km/h is on any surface is dangerous and on public roads it's downright stupid...but lane splitting at that speed!!!

Luck is wasted on stupid people sometimes!!!
