We need another ADW productions video of that action, Andy.

Thanks, Kennedy. A new bike is not in my future anytime soon, but we need something like this.

Good thing...because a (barely) street legal dirt bike would never instigate such acts of hooliganism.

Good point. I probably won't be doing any triple digit lane splitting on a 950 SE. Then again I was once told that those things have a tendency to somehow make you ride like an asshole.
