A RECKLESS motorbike rider has taken his life into his own hands after standing on his seat while speeding along a busy London motorway.
Shocking footage shows the anonymous motorist climb onto his motorbike seat as he heads west on the M40 just outside of London.
As he approaches the busy M25 junction, the dangerous driver is seen balancing on one leg when passing another vehicle in the fast lane.
He then pulls himself to his feet while crouching down to hold onto the handlebars.
Shockingly, the driver almost loses his balance when passing over a small bump in the road, but is able to stay on his feet.
He even manages to speed up despite standing up, before having to suddenly slam on the brakes to avoid hitting a lorry.
A passenger in the car capturing the footage can be heard saying “What is he doing? Oh my god” before the driver returns to the seated position.
Social media users have been quick to blast the dangerous behaviour, with one person saying “Let’s hope he doesn’t hurt anyone when he falls off”.
Another person said “Looks like within the M25. That’s normal in that area as most motorists are completely stupid”.
Thames Valley Police have been contacted about the incident, with it not known if the driver was caught.
Another motorist was recently captured on a dash cam eating a bowl of cereal at the wheel on their morning commute.
The man appeared to have no hands on the wheel, with one grasping a bowl and the other shovelling spoonfuls of breakfast into his mouth.
