I see this all the time on Route 27 and other high-speed roadways, and it makes me heartsick. Unnecessary risks in the show of machismo! And it also makes me angry that motorcycle riders (and other drivers too) risk the lives of others when they pull these stunts.

I hope his insurance company is reading this.
