    Shocking riding. Bike does perhaps a too good job of mimicking yesteryear?

    Haha! Lane-splitting like a motherfucker. Should have seen what we used to do as motorcycle couriers in Sydney.

    ...at similar speeds, too.

    "Shocking Riding"...that's tame. As an ex London courier we'd be hitting those speeds in central London, in between Routmasters and black taxes....stoppies, wheelies just a part of a normal day delivering parcels. Was great when the influx of favela riding Brazlians who became couriers upped the game, they were pretty good through the traffic, made for some great races across London. Even when I moved on from Couriering I have fond memories of the tear-ups on my TLS on my morning commutes. The crap you can get away with in London/UK would land you in prison in Aus.
