    Double yellow lines only apply to vehicles with an even number of wheels.

    I was very surprised that they didn't run head on into someone going the other way.

    That is so ridiculous ... Perhaps his goal was to stay in the road - if that's the case he mostly succeeded...

    I got through 3 minutes of the video and couldn't watch any more. Once the Guy started laughing at his friend weaving over the yellow lines on his 3/4 of a convertable I was done. I am pretty sure me and my 4runner would corner better than either of those jackasses...

    I can not believe that being riders themselves, they can consciously let themselves get away with that for 10 miles.

    As long as the front wheel stays right of the line, it counts?

    You go on with your fight. :thumb

    Get his tag #, track him down and chastise THE FUCK out of him for his choice of side of PAINT(!) he chose to ride on.

    At least the music was appropriate - the lady in the middle one singing "God help me" and the almost last one singing "I shouldn't be doin' this"

    If you see a bunch of guys with vests that say GWRRA FL1-V when you are there give them a wide berth. The dragon is one of those things that i think I want to do, but seeing this kind of thing makes me wonder.

    Good to know. I'm gonna start carrying an extra wheel in my saddle bag. That way all you bitches gotta get outta my way.

    Amazing. Toss a coin in the air 18 times and every time it comes up heads. While they were lucky, the more amazing thing is that they don't seem to have hurt anyone else.

    Mostly being the key term. At some points they were across the entire oncoming lane with parts on there shoulder, outside of the oncoming lane. That doesn't include leaning. It's completely terrifying.

    Yea, my first time though I didn't finish it either. My morbid sense of curiosity caused me to see if they survived.

    I'm not actually sure they qualify as riders.

    I'm not sure that the front wheel was even inside the opposite white line in a couple cases. Ohhh, and counts as what when you're driving a Volkswagen?

    I could at least understand the argument in the other thread. This... nothing justifies.

    Yea, as mentioned it's something I think I want to do, bit this makes me question that.

    Re: You all will love this

    Absolutely everything about that video made me cringe. The music was miserable, even if you like country I still don't see how it fits the video, the riding was obviously silly, and am I the only one who thinks trikes are some of the ugliest vehicles on the road? I'm just not sure you can build one that looks beautiful, its like trying to break a rule of nature or something.

    Love around 7:00, "Ain't nuthin like this in flurida". You guys have to cut him some slack, hes just used to driving in straight lines all day.

    So the fact that we get to chose which side of the paint we ride on is now a right? What amendment covers that?

    I suspect that level of subtlety is lost on them. They are too busy congratulating them selves on the speed of their run.

    I don't think the music was selected. I think it is what was actually playing on the camera guys bike at the time.
    Goldwings, from the back, aren't exactly pretty. Triking them makes them about 1000% worse.
    Even the guy doing the filming seems to be riding poorly. I've not been to the gap, so don't have personal experience there, but it doesn't seem like he's running at "scraping" speeds in many of the cases where he's scraping. Don't get me wrong... I do plenty of scraping, but I'm pretty sure he has no idea what he's doing.

    Re: You all will love this

    That literally just plain made me angry. If I passed someone riding like that on the road, If I was able to live thru it. I would be hard presed not to follow them till they stopped and friggin rip into them. I probably would have pulled up to them when they stopped and pulled there key out of the ignition and tossed it off the bridge at the end.
