Default Crazy speeds on two wheels

This guy is skilled and nuts. Unbelievable!

Look at the speedo and tacho while he pops wheelies at these speeds:

It looks like to me it might be in KPH. At 120 it was going the average speed of the other vehicles. It looked too slow to be 120 MPH. Still crazy. I bet it gets a 0 of 5 stars in a crash test. What do you think?

It may by MPH's but hard to say. Stock they can get up to 180mph's, but this has a turbo. But doing all that around vehicles is a squid move.

Yeah, all it takes is one mistake and the guy could easily be killed.

My father almost got killed once on his motorcycle. Shortly after his accident, he sold it. This was back when he was younger than I am today, so I might not have been here today if things didn't turn out so well. Okay, stop your clapping and wahooing out there.

Well, I am not too concerened about him killing himself, but more he could kill other motorists at that speed, or if not, if he hits a car that kills him, the person driving could have mental issues after that even though it wasn'tthat persons fault. Also guys like this give motorcyclists a bad rap.

Very true. Even if it isn't the driver's fault, they would feel responsible for the fool's death.

It isn't fair how people want to stereotype other people they don't like. Most people who own motorcycles are careful and cautious, but the minuet a bad one does something stupid. The media starts eating it up and spitting out negative, unfair stereotypes.

Don't forget about the guy or gal in the car.

I have seen them killed by a motorcylist that ran into the driver's door as well.

Wow, I never thought about that. Even though the momentum is not heavily influence by the weight of the motorcycle. The speed could be a big enough force to do enough damage to a car that could hurt a passenger in a car.

Yep, happens all the time. My friend was out mowing his lawn and saw a crash where the motorcyclist was racing another over 100 mph's. This was in a residential area. One bike hit a woman pulling out into the street and killed her, the car caught on fire it was hit so hard, and nothing my friend could do to get her out. The other bike kept going.

I will admit I do speed. But not in residential or crowded areas. I hit over 100 all the time, easy to do. On freeways when it is clear and I don't swerve in and out of cars. If I come up to traffic, I just fall in.

Whoa! I'll be sure to keep my eyes out for speeding motorcyclists. As long as you know what you can handle is all that really matters.
