EDIT: Let me make something clear, the woman did nothing wrong but as you can see after I pass her, I have much more room in front and behind me this way. I'm sure you can see (judging on the van behind me and the point at which she has to merge in) how little room I would have otherwise. The purpose of posting the video was merely to check the camera angle and to test the camera settings after YT compression.
The title is to gain viewers (although I never expected it to reach the amount it has so far). If you come here to cry like a little baby, move on. If you dislike it, dislike it. If you like it, like it. It's all the same to me. Although there is a light saber showing, most comments seem to be positive and don't take it too seriously. Good for you. :)
Hello everybody. I'm doing some trials on my helmet setup to get the angle just right. I think I finally got it (after having to modify my helmet).
Here's a short video of me riding with a K7 GSX-R 1000 (to all the Gixxer fans out there, you'll get to see more of him soon).

Now to all my new viewers , if you have any requests regarding how to do maintenance, riding, counter steering, riding in the rain etc. etc. etc. Please subscribe and leave a comment. I'll try to get a video up to answer any global (or perhaps really specific) questions.
Road rage after caught on her phone - "Do you know who I am? My UNCLE is a very famous politician"
Updated the title as sounds (as unlikely as it could be) that her UNCLE is
the "Very famous politician". Which makes even less sense..
This is part way through this woman's response to me (a pedestrian waiting
to cross the road) telling her to "get off your phone" while she was
driving up Albion st in Surry Hills, Sydney. She had stopped right in front
of me as a car in front of her reverse parked and was texting/smsing away.
22/08/2013 at lunchtime.
Started some bizarre responses including threats to follow me, or have
someone follow me and a "You must be a Labor party voter" which was pretty
bizarre. So I'm guessing she's a Liberal party MP's wife (she said husband
or maybe uncle?) then if that's some sort of insult in her world?
Then as she backed up and wouldn't leave and kept on - I got out my phone
to take a picture of her number plate - decided on video instead as she
wasn't going anywhere despite all the people beeping and me telling her to
So enjoy this insight into the world of entitled politician's relative too
arrogant to just acknowledge she'd done something wrong and implying she
had high up powers to get me for daring to tell her to get off her phone.
She even had it in her hand when she's saying she doesn't have a phone..
And apparently she's carrying out a drug use survey because that seemed to
be very important for her to find out if I'd taken drugs. Or perhaps
whether she might claim I was hallucinating.
So Ms BVA 42K - Black BMW X3 - your driving attention needs some definite
improvement especially along a street like Albion with pedestrian crossings
and cars entering from side streets. That and perhaps think about whether
to use the words "Do you know who I am?" when you are going to then tell me
who your uncle is.
Note: it's illegal to touch a phone while driving - let alone write out
messages. Whether stopped or not - it's not permitted (or smart).

Car overtakes motorcycle in front of cop, gets pulled over
I'm riding in a 35mph zone, see a cop and let off the throttle while
checking my speed. A dumbass in what looks like an Audi proceeds to pass me
over the double yellow RIGHT in front of the cop. I had just checked my
mirrors 5 seconds before the intersection and he was nowhere in sight.
Advanced - How to ride a motorcycle in "police style" advanced mode
A ride up the twisty Via gelia Road near Matlock Bath in Derbyshire,
apparently the 2nd most dangerous road in the U.K. The video is paused
from time to time for on screen notes and tips. This is being ridden
slowly as I have pupils following and watching me.
"Why is this called Police style" I get asked
Because It's based on "Roadcraft, the police rider's handbook" and it helps

RE: Pickup driver tries to kill motorcyclist.
The pickup truck driver was sentenced to prison on 12/15/2011. He was
sentenced to 2 years in prison on each of the 2 wanton endangerment counts
(each is a class D felony), 90 days in jail for menacing, and a $100 fine
for reckless driving. The sentences run concurrent for a total of 2 years
The truck driver served about 45 days and was released on probation. The
original motorcyclist was not fined.
The purpose of this video is to put the speeds of all parties involved in
this incident in perspective. People were claiming the original
motorcyclist was going 80-100mph. That is absolutely false, and as shown
by sync my video up to his you can see his speeds average 55-60mph.
If you don't trust me when I say I'm not making up the speed limit, then
take a look at this Google Maps image. The direction of travel in the
video is the opposite direction. At 7:47 in my video I pass this sign and
it's on the left.
55 speed limit sign...
End 35 speed limit sign...

friend were riding together. I called him and had to get the video file
emailed to me so I could overlay it. I was not there in the original
