If you expected to see a crazy KTM 390 Duke rider riding hard on the wrong side of the highway like Trinity did in Matrix, you'll be a bit disappointed to learn that this Colombian rider is on the right side.
However, we don't recommend hitting that red x in the corner of your screen just yet. The video recorded by this fellow's camera is as exhilarating as it gets, even though what is shows represents an excellent proof for the cops to move in, fines and all.

The action reportedly takes place in the Colombia capital Bogota, and we can see that the roads are full of motorbikes. Even though we won't go as far as to say that such riding may be quite common in Colombia, we cannot help noticing that nobody seems to be startled by how this fellow splits lanes.

If anything, we CAN say that this KTM rider knows his way around Colombian traffic, and is not exactly taking completely insane risks. That is, in case we admit that we all step on the wild side now and then, but without being completely reckless.

From hero to zero

We might add that we definitely don't condone with this type of lane splitting, because we believe it IS, in fact, a bit too dangerous and rather mindless. As we couldn't see any emergency that would require such riding, we'd go for the sheer pleasure of "two-wheeled hooliganism", a thing we all seem to indulge in from time to time.

Still, seeing how busy the highway traffic is in certain areas, we just know that such rides can end very badly. All it takes is a driver or even a fellow rider not acknowledging the incoming Duke and making the wrong move. And factoring in the high speed of the KTM would hardly be helpful when if going went tough.

All in all, while we admire this rider's excellent ability to streak through traffic at high speed, we don't recommend you did the same.
