    Check out this video from French Mag, Moto Journal.
    It is not only humorous but shows how bike should be used. What these guys are doing is the very reason I love bikes and it is how I like to ride.
    It may be irresponsible, stupid and dangerous to some people but to me it is the only way to ride.



    If the video locks at the 2 minute 15 second mark try the French version with no English subtitles

    Great fun. Good to see all sorts of bikes. Love the tongue in cheek safety humour.

    Here's another interesting video by moto journal. It's quite tame compared to the stunts shown above, more on the mellow side, but still funny. The cross plain crank is explained in a bar using vodka shotglasses. Unfortunately no subtitles, only frogspeak, but it's still nice to watch the R1 in the countryside and on the track.

    That's the way I'd like to be able to ride - less outright speed and power but balance and control, the guy is like an acrobat.

    The ideal urban "getaway vehicle"...
