    An excellent way to get yourself killed. It's why we pay taxes, and have professionally trained LEO's to police the roads.

    The tape may end up incriminating the rider, for speeding, reckless riding, running Red Lights, etc.

    Hero? No, reckless, foolhardy vigilante... yes. A phone call to the police at the first scene would have done just as well. For that matter... how was he calling on the phone while riding? isn't this (cell phone use while driving) something we endlessly moan about here? How is it O.K. on a motorcycle?

    Again, the Tape shows a lot of near misses, a lot of possibly dangerous acts to other road users, and a lot of illegal riding. Ten buck$ says HE gets a few tickets for this act.

    I wouldn't have done it, he came close to getting squashed by that truck. But he did get another drunk off the rtoad so Kudos to him!:beer

    And for those of you who say just say get his plate # and turn it in, well I know how that would have turned out.

    2 days later when the cops would have went to his house to get a statement, He would have just admitted that he was driving the car and that he was also drinking!:photog

    If I had done what he did I sure wouldn't want anyone seeing the dumbass right hand passes on that car and truck. He's lucky he didn't end up causing more carnage for innocent bystanders than the original accident.
