Synchronized Motorcycle Driving

Do you have the nerves to watch this?

Imagine the total impact if just one guy ran into another guy!

Wow!  This reminds of the time I was out for a ride with about 7-8 other friends and their bikes... We were riding down an uninhabited highway (I thought) and so I decided to show off some of my stunt riding. My buddies were behind me so I thought I would put on a show...

I set my throttle lock and stand up on the seat and stick my arms out to the side... then I swing down and put one foot on the front peg and one on the rear foot-peg both on the same side of the bike (750 Triumph Tiger).. again take my hands off the handlebars so I am essentially standing on the side of  bike that is tilting away from me... heading down the road at about 60 KMH Then I get really crazy and decide to swing my right foot over the bike and sit on it facing backwards...

Thats when I notice all my bro's have fallen back a hundred meters or so and two motorcycle cops are right on my tail!  They smile at me and indicate that I should pull over... Me sitting there backwards on my bike facing two cops at 40 MPH ! Shocked

Now this had been going on for about a couple of kilometers and the cops had done nothing just follow and watch.

They said they were scared they may startle me if they used there sirens and lights so they let me continue until I saw them...

They said they had not seen such good stunt riding outsdie the police stunt team and that if I was not a loser I should be doing something like that.

I got a ticket for "failing to remain seated on a motorcycle" and another for "failing to have both hands on the handlebars"

The cops said they had never even heard of these infractions being given to anyone else. Told me I was a great rider and that I should have a nice day!

I would have loved to have been involved in something like you posted Tomas.
