    As a driver I don't mind Bikers filtering ... they do it for a good reason ... as long as they do it safely and considerately. The idea that all car drivers are jealous of bikers doing it is wrong. I'm not in a hurry to get anywhere ... I'm not going to risk my health or the health of anyone else so I expect teh same of all others on the road or crossing the road (yes ... you pedestrians ... if there is a zebra crossing 10 yards away then try using it instead of just jumping in the road without looking and with your in-ear, noise cancelling headphones in, playing some massive beats which sound exactly like bones cracking when a car drives over you!)

    And @mattx ... some nice riding (and yes, some dodgy and illegal riding) but come on ...

    Couldn't see anything wrong with Mattx's riding so stop bleating. Now this is what I class as riding irresponsibly:

    Nothing wrong (or at least out of the ordinary) with any of that riding. But thats not the point of this thread. Very nice little cam - the quality is astonishing for a 12 quid bargain!

    Frankly if you want to worry about the lives (and deaths) try motoring around Cambridge. It's not motorbikes there (as much), it's the cyclists. A complete bunch of nutters who all want shooting, and between them are a bigger risk to peoples and their own lives than any plagues, viruses or apocalyptic events you could wish to imagine. I'm not talking to you, Mr Camping, I'm awaiting my hired assassin to belt you with an IQ stick 400 times to bring you up to the average IQ.

    Which includes overtaking on a zebra crossing or the wrong side of bollards?
    Irresponsible riding at best, downright reckless abuse of two wheels in any other case.
    Can I ask what you think gives you the right to 'overtake' where other road users are not permitted to do so?
    Clue: because you can fit through the gap is not the right answer.

    Interested to know myself!

    And browse YouTube, that'll show some real terrible driving. Come to think of it, I dare the complainers to strap a camera to their dashboard so we can judge for ourselves. No cheating now.

    Tell you what - stick a camera on your dash and I bet it will show you driving like a bigger arse. Makes me laugh how everyone thinks they can drive better than everyone else or they know better than everyone else. The posting was to show a cheap camera working on a motorbike - but it seems the Mary Whitehouse Brigade members of the forum are up in arms over my riding. Never mind - I'll enjoy my riding like I have done for past 25 years thanks..........Yawn.

    All the debating over good / bad riding aside - am saving up for one of these quads :



    There were a few bits that seemed some what risky or whatever but either way you're still in one piece etc so seemed fair enough to me seeing as you didn't run anyone over or have a car plough into you etc.

    Maybe its just where the camera is situated but looked like before you over took cars etc you seemed a bit close, maybe thats just me
