This man wants to be married – level 3
We’ve heard of extravagant marriage proposals, but one biker in America made sure when got down on one knee it literally was traffic stopping
Hundreds of bikers blocked vehicles on a major California freeway so that one of their members could propose to his girlfriend. In this stunt, the pack of bikers slowed to a crawl on the I-10 freeway near West Covina, causing other traffic to stop.
The groom-to-be then kicked off the proposal by spinning his back tire, which was custom crafted to emit a large plume of pink smoke.
He then hopped off his bike, got down on one knee and popped the question.
Although she said yes, it may not be a happy ending for this couple as police in America were less than thrilled with this stunt and the pair could now face criminal charges.
