Man that looks like a wild ride, suppose you get use to it somewhat. I'd rather ride in sand. LOL Very entertaining none the less. Ride Safe

A bike looks like the way to beat the traffic there. I'm guessing you don't have wide side bags!

Cabrito, you demonstrate some superior skills there; both in riding and judgement. If I did that, I'd have to stop once I got out of town and extract both my underwear and seat cover from my ass, try to straighten my handlebars out from clenching them too tight and find some Ben-Gay to apply to my neck muscles.

About all I have to dodge to get out of town is maybe a squirrel, slow-moving tractor or occasional stray dog.

Good video, man!

Very nice! Traffic is to the point in Atlanta where legalizing lane splitting should be considered. I would be all for it. It will take years for that to become a reality but I doubt it ever will.

Make your cops ride air cooled Harleys.
