We've all been warned of the death, danger and expensive fines associated with texting while driving, but tweeting while riding? It seems some people never learn, as this insane motorcyclist decides to show off his social media skills to his stunt crew by texting and tweeting while standing backwards on his bike... on the highway! Watch the risky rider speed up, stand up and literally give new meaning to the term "hands-free."
We're not sure if the rider prefers his iPhone over a much safer Go-Pro camera, or maybe he wanted to FaceTime with some buddies who just couldn't make the ride that day? Whatever the case, his dangerous antics were caught on camera, as we see him film, text and reportedly tweet from his iPhone. We can only hope his risky tweet was worth it, and hopefully something more creative than "Epic bike ride today bros!"
According to some forum board members, he managed to not only take a few photos, he even uploaded them live to his Twitter page while standing on the bike backwards. You need to see this unbelievable video, as the large motorcycle convoy carelessly hog all five lanes of traffic in order to stunt, wheelie and endo their way along this public roadway. Although we admit this rider has some hardcore multitasking skills, we want to make it clear that it's clearly not a safe idea and very illegal.
