    I wonder if he has less cars yelling at him to get off the road when he's riding that thing.

    That doesn't look like the USA, and in other parts of the world with sane traffic law, two-wheelers -- including motorcycles -- are allowed and encouraged to "filter" to the front of traffic stopped at a light.

    How do we know that's a bike-only lane...?
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    I wonder if he has a baseball card in the spokes?

    That's what my dad told me about motorcycling in Japan (from when he was in the USAF in the 70's)... "Get to the front, then get out of the way."

    Instead of saying "wait for it..." in the description, why don't they just cut out the first 22 seconds of the video?

    Hey here, car drivers use the bike lane.

    Yup, drivers of smaller cars regularly use the bike lane for their "special passing lane" here in San Diego, during rush hour. I see it all the time. It had gotten so bad at one point on Genesee near highway 5 some many years back that a police officer actually was posted to wave the motorists out of the BL so bikes could get through.

    Wish I had it on vid... but you'll have to take my word for it.
