Indeed. There is a dramatic increase in ads on YT. Forget these idiotic reviewers, its the ads that get on my nerves now a days.

Came across this video on YouTube. What an absolute idiot! Why would he even think of escorting an ambulance?? Isn't this illegal? obstructing right of way to an emergency vehicle?? Equally idiotic are the comments!!

Report him to Bangalore police via their Facebook or Twitter. We don't need these "take the law into my own hands" types and yes, he is actually breaking the law by not pulling over and letting the ambulance past.

The worse part is that deafeningly loud horn. Surprising that he didn't cause an accident on the flyover. Poor patient inside....

It's the classic tale of the mongoose, the baby and the snake all over again.

The comments stand out as a testament to the collective stupidity of our society! Apart from all the "good job" comments, some even want him as a police officer. The mentality that rules are for others to follow, and I get a free pass - runs deep.

p.s.: First post on t-bhp on road safety, wouldn't have it any other way.
I was hoping someone on team bhp will mention this ass-hat. I have had the unfortunate displeasure of actually meeting him and seeing him ride that wretched garbage on 2 wheels that he puts videos up on Youtube speeding at 300 kmph on the Delhi Agra expressway.

He gets his popularity from his insta fan-bois and the chapri riders. He tries to ping me sometimes to do a "vlog" of my bikes. I was extremely pissed off with him when he went and posted a video of my 1198SP after I bought it, while it was with the dealer, without my permission or approval.

Idiots like him promote unsafe riding and are a disgrace to the biking community. He puts up videos of loudly revving his bikes in residential neighborhoods. I wonder when the Delhi police will seize his license.

Utterly idiotic commentary and blatant disregard of rules is the theme. All he says is every bike is 'different' and has 'aggression'.

Speeding on the highways, bragging about it and then posting videos just causes more problems for us riders who don't wish to be associated with this nonsense. A few weeks after this clown posted his videos, his friends and other associates were racing on the Delhi-Noida connector and on the Agra expressway, doing wheelies, and burnouts and making videos. Cops shut down the expressway at the toll booth and fined the riders Rs 5000 each. Some bikes were seized.

Unluckily, at the same time one of my biker friends was out riding with his group and was hassled by the cops, even though he had no association with the youtube gang. The matter was resolved only after calls were made to higher authorities and credentials shown to establish that my friend was not some chapri rider pulling bike stunts.

One more dangerous trend now a days is - record yourself driving like a maniac as if you are not scared to die(or kill others), and then post it as your Insta/Whatsapp story with the tag - "mood", or "mood off" etc.

I used to watch Gagan till few years back but I noticed he is not a fair reviewer. He seemed to be a fanboy of Hyundais, maybe because he owned one. Not sure if that has improved now. But atleast he does not drive like a maniac - Faisal Khan and others.

On YouTube, for car reviews I watch - Powerdrift, Ashish Masih, KKC On a Motive (TBHPian Karan's channel), Mycarhelpline and a few others. Although, the quality of reviews by Powerdrift has detoriorated so much in the recent years.

Some of the more level-headed ones are from V3Cars, DDS. DDS team picks up random users and you do get more honest opinions,.
