Sorry, but law enforcement should just stick to catching people drinking and driving, people texting or talking on their phones. That's where the real danger is.

You're missing the point..

people texting or talking on their phones. That's where the real danger is.
He jumps an on ramp a couple seconds in front of a truck. Is that less dangerous than talking on a cel phone?

How does this video improve the image of motorcycle riders to the general public?

Are we all hooligans who break the rules whenever we want?

Is this video going to help lane splitting become legal? You do want lane splitting to be legal, don't you? Should we have more videos of riders breaking the law, while asking legislators to legalize lane splitting? That's not productive.

All he had to do was film the stunts on private land.. that's all.

He's a young kid who clearly does not understand politics.How much common sense does it take not to break the law and post it on youtube? I break the rules at least occasionally, but I dont videotape it or brag about it.

Here's a video that followed that golden rule... Tophers video could have been just as good, if he had filmed the stunts on private land. Instead, he had to take it down because of the negative publicity.

Scribbles, you make some valid points, but I'm not buying it that his video is hurting the motorcycle community in such a horrible way.

There's a gazillion videos out on hooliganism. Do they hurt those trying to legalize lane splitting? Possibly, but probably not much. Just like all the negativity during the prohibition and all the problems that went along with it, and alcohol was legalized, or all the years of negativity and problems that came with MJ, but it has been legalized. More and more other states are legalizing MJ too.

Is Mr. Ingalls being the best example to the public in general? Probably not (even though I think it was tastefully done). I just think CHP could have just asked him to take his video down, look the other way, and call it a day.

LEO's look the other way all the time. My friend and I were on a motorcycle trip just last summer, and coming through eastern OR, we were taveling at a pretty high rate of speed. My radar detector went off from an instant on radar. We were sure we were in BIG trouble (maybe more than just a ticket), but he just gave us the flash of lights, and went right on by. My friend gave him a big wave.

Did we deserve to get pulled over? Absolutely! Did we get a big fat ticket or something worse? Not at all! Were other drivers, in the area, angry we didn't? Probably!

The same thing could have been said with Mr Ingalls, CHP could have asked him to take video down, he thanks them and tells them he'll keep it legal next time or what ever, and everybody moves on. That's all I'm saying.

I stand by what I say.....CHP should be out catching those that really danger others, Drivers under the influence, texting/talking etc.

I would bet that truck was his buddy and timed for effect, if not that was dumb.

No word yet if he'll be ticketed, or charged.

I hope they drop it, but that's not what I expect will happen.

It really is a shame that he didnt film this legally. He's an excellent rider, and the filming was great, just not legal.

Instead of helping his new career, he may have sabotaged it.
