I like how in the video he says "This is how you GET AWAY with riding on the highway in Taiwan" . And then he gets ticketed.

I originally thought that it was a "famous" rider we have here on Forumosa, but by the voice and the looks of the girlfriend... it's not.

The bad thing about this is... people are going to start making assumptions about the big-noses...

The other thing I hate about Taiwanese news is how they make useless comments when showing YouTube videos. Comments made in this video were:

"He even has the gall to change lanes!"

"He saw the police, so he's using a bus to hide, thinking that he can get away."

"He even rides into a gas station the wrong way."

Like, c'mon Taiwanese news... please... don't talk too much.

Only twice??????? Damn, you must really live in the sticks. I usually see it at least 6 times before I am out of the driveway.. :ohreally:

Fucking Taiwan media. They went to his home. And talked to his security guard. The guard says that he doesn't have a spot in the underground parkade, but parks there anyway. THAT'S NEWS FOLKS!!! WHITE GUY PARKS IN PARKING LOT BUT DOESN'T HAVE HIS OWN SPOT!!! I'm surprised they haven't sent a SWAT team after him yet. Fucking white people :roll: .

And that´s nothing. Last Friday I was chased AGAIN by an asshole and his blue van because I dared to blow the horn when he was getting into the bike´s lane in the middle of a curve. The guy went nuts and chased me, and dude, I was ridding fuckin´ fast (to get rid from him), but eventually he got me and tried to pull me off the road several times, like if it were a movie. There was a lot of bikes but he could keep on me, though.

I´m really dying to see how one of these @#$% ends his moronic days smashing his red teeth against a wall, truly. I think I will feel bad person but still will enjoy it.

Americans are generally pretty law abiding, but just last week two cars on separate occasions cut right in front of me on the crosswalk. And thats pretty unheard of here. Both were driven by middle aged white women. I felt like taking off a shoe and throwing it at them, but then they could be armed and could shoot me.

Never know round here.

I haven't been chased in forever. The first few years I was here I was getting chased on a regular basis. Been years since someone has chased me. I miss it. :cry: I once shot up on the sidewalk at high speed to lose someone, he tried to follow me but ripped off his lower plastics. Was fun.
