This article is very inaccurate. I have done what I can from personal knowledge to fix it, but it is still not very high quality.Andy 17:00, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
- I have basically redone this entire article. Andy 17:17, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
There is an inaccuracy with the sentence that states that automatic transmission is required. This is not the case. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:01, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
Please source this entire section. Just because you saw E-40 talking about it on MTV doesn't mean he "initially perpetuated it"... Also, why is the part of this section that is from E-40 lyrics even here? It has nothing to do with getting out of a moving vehicle and dancing. I am removing this section as all of the information therein is irrelevant as of yet.Andy 17:05, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
- That is what is known as a Redneck Rollercoaster, an activity done at much higher speeds and (in origin) distantly related to the Bay Area's ghostriding Nofrendo 08:56, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
- I have been trying to write the history of this act, and it is repeatedly edited out. Ghost riding the whip DOES have a early American origin. It has been a story told by sage elderly black men since that time, it is much like the use of the N-word. I can't believe the ignorance of people sometimes. -Devin Cleabold II —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 18:25, January 5, 2007
- I have herd of this "Ghost Rider" he is not Ghost Riding a Car But A vary fast motorcycle, in Sweden, He was know as The "Ghost Rider" because He would Speed away form the Police evading there pursuits and resisting arrests to disapear into the night, or some thing like that.

There has to be more history than this. I remember ghost riding our bicycles in the late 70's. Where did the term come from? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:26, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
Do u think anything should be written aout safety? I'm from tha yay, been doin this for a while, but since that damn tell me when to go song came out, i've heard way to many stories about ppl not realising their alignment needs to be straight! And injuries and dummyness pursues . . . -- Carlos 17:19, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
- Does much more need to be said than this? (other than "does insurance cover that?") --0x845FED 04:52, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
Shouldn't the title be "ghost ride the whip"? What instances are there of someone using solely the term "ghost ride" without "the whip"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 17:55, July 21, 2006
- Me and my friends used to "ghost ride" our bikes by getting them up to speed and then jumping off of them and that was like 10-15 years ago. I doubt we came up with term. Recury 04:02, 19 August 2006 (UTC)
- This is got to be the coolest pages on Wikipedia, That is a great bit of Vandalism thanks for Sharing, and keep Ghost Riding the whip! Max 05:14, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
As funny as it is, I removed: "However, this account for the longest ghost ride was only second best. All accounts of ghost riding come second to when Danny Sacks ghost rode a hot air balloon on June 6, 2006, but shortly died a month later after an attempt at riding a helicopter on July 19, 2006. He came back from the dead on July 25, 2006, to fulfill his prophecy as Jesus." and cleaned up the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Periodic (talk • contribs) 22:07, November 13, 2006
Is it possible for a person to face criminal charges over ghost riding, even if it doesn't result in any injuries or damage? The current version of the article doesn't make this clear. Redeagle688 21:58, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Most definitely in the UK. It's called 'quitting' and dealt with under the s.22 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 as amended.
I found it strange that my small edit concerning the Volvo in the YouTube video was edited out... The car in the video is definitely not a Volvo 850, but a larger, RWD model which is either a 940 or a 960, depending of the engine size. - —Preceding unsigned comment added by P00blyk07:02, February 22, 2007 (talk • contribs)
- Agreed - I can't tell exactly what kind of volvo, but I own an 850 and that is not one in the video. -judd —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 19:09, February 24, 2007
- Yeah, whatever this is a picture of, it's not a picture of someone ghost riding. It's potentially quite confusing. Universaladdress 17:30, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
TATU ghost riding the whimp ?
Have you seen the TATU videoclip Nas ne dogoniat (Not gonna get us)? Do you think what they do might be considered ghost riding the whimp? Should it be mentioned in the article ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:54, 21 April 2007 (UTC).
