    I *maybe* have done worse stuff when working as a high speed TV news footage courier or even when the moon has been too full :whistle:
    but I'd never advertise or be proud of this behavior on a video...

    Some times gone the following roads in enduro style over obstacles as bumper to bumper traffic used to be close to completely stopped all too often down town Athens before the "crisis times" that killed traffic through ultra expensive gasoline.
    It is very addictive, like a video game but with only one life and may the force be with you not to kill some other who just strolls around... If you do not end up crippled or dead or behind bars for killing others, you end up wiser later in life.
    Stupid way to achieve wisdom but some of us are really really stupid.
    For the record, the guy commuting in the following video *most probably* has been killed by a red light offender on his commute on a fast low traffic road out of the city a few months ago - the irony of having done so much of this kind of riding in town over the years and be killed be a van driver not willing to wait for a red light while going a boring route...

    I still remembered going fast on my NX650 and be overtaken flat out by a racing Husky motard at the 0:55 passage...
    I was faaast for the conditions but he was maybe twice faster - there is always a faster gun than you!

    It is a catch 22 situation, like a dog chasing its tail.

    Logic suggests that when going for it, you will find it, eventually.
    However, Fate always seem to struck when you are not in full alert mode - I know from (lucky) experience.
    Like the fellow member almost been knocked off the road by an empty-headed police officer just to ask his papers...

    Conditions in Athens are strange as the speed-traffic density used to be at a manageable rate for a human to drive in packman-mode and get away with it. I often later wondered how I (and others) escaped the meeting with Fate and has come up to this conclusion of "manageability rate" of the traffic and tarmac equation. Even on 2-3 multi-mile stretches of straight multi-lane roads Athens has and have been often filled with stop-and-go traffic and many of us go like this crazy Russian in the first video, here we have no opposite traffic over double line which is a major complexity reducer.

    Till now, the most impressive and most stupid not-stunt riding I've seen remains the original Ghost Rider where too high speed difference makes the ride a gamble.
