  • Riding to hard on a busy road, but 10 months is harsh. You get people committing more serious crimes getting lesser sentences.

  • To be pedantic, the video shows two separate bikes committing these violations. The ZX9 onboard shows that rider's speed and poor overtakes, but the wheelie and weaving are performed by another rider in this group, on a different bike. Your write-up implies the ZX rider committed all the offences. Looks as if the whole group were behaving like absolute muppets. I've seen this kind of pack mentality at play on the roads first hand, when I've been riding my own motorcycle. It makes me embarrassed that someone might think I was part of it, and infuriated at how such behaviour tarnishes the reputation of all other safe and responsible riders.

  • Riding recklessly on public roads should always carry a harsh penalty. Endanger your own life on a track not mine and my kids.
