      Found it on the web (it had a Hawk in it) so added it to the forum.

      I must admit its just a guy who seems to spend ages puting his gloves on and then just rides off on his Hawk

          That sucked pretty bad. I don't know why those guys would bother putting their names on that thing. It's literally just a dude taking more than a minute to put his gloves and helmet on, then he just slowly rides through a parking lot.

          I was talking to the damn screen trying to get him to do a wheelie or something, but he didn't listen at all.

              Imagine driving down the road on four wheels. Now take two wheels away. It just got better didn't it? Now take one more away.

              I just love exploiting bikes that wheelie easily. It's a rush of adrenaline that I can't help but take advantage of. I pulled maybe 10 wheelies today, just casually flicking the throttle closed and nailing it open again, then riding it down the street for maybe 50 feet. Whenever I see another biker wheelie (which has happened less than 10 times in my lifetime) I get all excited. It's just one of them things. Beats me where it came from.

                      I drive 35000 miles+ a year I really don't need the ticket. Like I said when I was 15 I would try anything once, including jumping off of a 25 foot drop off over a small creek on my bicycle (made $50 for that act of stupidity). I have a family now, I just watch my boys act like fools.

                            What makes me laugh is how retro the video is. You can tell this is when the Hawk was new.

                            It's cool... because it's dumb. Or else I've lived in hipster Brooklyn too damn long, and it really is time to move back to the burbs!

                              I love that video! If you look close at the very start when he's walking toward the bike, I think he has his pants tightrolled. how cool is that!
