It would have been a lot more entertaining, if they had both been riding scooters at those speeds through traffic. That would at least have raised the bar as far as skill would be concerned.....
Now you inspired me lol

Poor video editing, but apparently scooter racing is a thing in many parts of the world:

Thanks for the feedback i understand your guys position on high speed riding and i respect it. But show some respect yourselves, this is the way i ride and i have been riding like this for a long time. This is what i feel comfortable doing. That's the great thing about America we have differences of opinions. The video you posted shows a squid rider who has no control of his bike going at a high rate of speed. "You are not a car so dont drive like one."

OK, I most often don't weigh in on this shite, but be specific now, "... been riding like this for a long time.... " Is that in dog lifespan {10 - 13 yrs}; Hummingbird life span {5-yr}; Housefly lifetime {28-days}; or more like (Pu) plutonium half-life span {24,100 yrs}?

As for me, I've been riding 45-yrs, and have had a license for 40-yrs. So, for an old curmudgeon like me, 'no, you really haven't been riding long at all'. You drew this ire to you free of charge when you asked for feedback. You might feel like a Doberman with two dicks, but what you are doing is selfish, immature, and down right felonious, with a critical lack of myelinated matter.

This (mis)behaviour is exactly the kind of shite, none us need. You might feel you have the "right" to ride like a total wanker (even having a driver's license is not a Right, it is merely a privilege), but you dont have the Right to F-c_ up other people's lives... Like when they T-bone you at a light you blew through, or when you impact a young child's door, and you have virtually become a 100mph land based missile and kill yourself and that child. And now King Dick, how about dumping a load of dung on the officer who gets the short straw and has to knock on your mother's door to give her the news her sons have been killed in a accident. "Merry Christmas, mom."

You wanna talk smack? Do you crave attention? Would like to really have a large measuring stick so you can brag how big your plums are. Then take your dog & pony show to the track. Not your scene? You already know you're faster... then show the local fast shoes on this board with you mopping up their asses. Film at 10:00, eh? I call bull shit. Take your Go-Pro and your wickedly fast Kawasakis to the track. Trust me, you show up and show them a thing or two, and they will be the first ones to sing your praises!

Taking yourself to the track would be the best Christmas present you could give yourself, your girlfriend/wife/etc., and to your mother. Show your mom your clip, and then show her pictures of corner works, riding instructors, and a pair of paramedics & an ambulance at any given track day, and I'm sure they (she) would choose the latter.

Hoping you have a Safe Holiday, and an Enlightened New Year

Is it just me or is the video edited to be sped up?

Are you kidding.. You are on borrowed time if you have been riding like this for a while.

Your writing check's you can't cash and payment will come due.

It's simple, if you have a need for speed then hit the track.
You will find out very quickly you don't know squat..
Can your ego take being in novice for several day's.

Prove me wrong.. do a track day, show me the bump sticker.

I'll show you mine..

What you don't have is a right to endanger others lives.

You asked for an opinion's and got them.
So

If he doesn't stick around, how will we ever read his next thread about how sum dumbazz kaygerr cut him off and how he had no choice but to "lay her down"..? :lol:
As a former MSF instructor, I've been engaged in more behind closed door snickering bouts with other instructors about the "... I had to lay it down, or I'd have crashed... " comments from former students.

It is truly amazing how: "Yes Biff, the whole world can be wrong all at once, but fortunately for the rest of us Luddites, You were on duty to be the lone genius at the wheel."

Do dirt bike wheelies count? I'm practicing wheelies too and can post vids but it won't be on a sport bike and it won't be in traffic lol

Not sure if that removes your interest.
F-c_ no they don't count, Spidey. Anyone's little sister can pull mingers on a dirty/trailie in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th from a dead stop. And still be doing maybe only 35-45 mph.

One of the biggest best laughs I had in the last 6-mo. was at my mechanic's shop back in September. He had a Gas Gas for sale, it had a manhole sized rear sprocket. Anyway, we were all giggling like school girls, as I was doing standing start wheelies and bunny hops in his parking lot - just pogoing back and forth and balancing on one tire than the other. And I'll be the first to admit that I'm no stunt god.
