Sorry Miko but...

We all ride bikes. We can all ride fast if we choose. Why the hell do people think that these videos entertain us? They actually show how dumb and impulsive the rider is. Please stop promoting these ridiculous videos.

Just makes people who stop by the site think that we are meatheads. ...at 160mph. Ninja please!

Large set of balls tho...
Not necessarily. I rode just like that too in the first week of getting my first bike ever, when I was 21 years old. Didn't even have 100 miles of riding experience then. Looking back at it now, it was pure stupidity. I had barely any skill and my balls were certainly not bigger than they are now. Like someone else mentioned...ANYONE can go fast on a highway. There's nothing impressive about it.

Right but not everyone has the testicular fortitude to post video evidence of it on a forum full of LEOs...

Personally... I find going a buck forty through turn 1 at Laguna Seca - a blind left-hand turn, over a hill, with nothing to tell you where you're going besides aiming at a telephone pole on the horizon as your ass comes out of the seat and the front wheel comes up - then to braking as late as possible and dropped 4 gears before going into turn 2 much more exciting than this.

But that's just me.

Haha I love blind turns for that reason! When people say "when you start leaning, aim for that cell phone tower/water tower/telephone pole/random ass building that's 3 miles away..." :D

Glad to know it isn't just me. I've never seen the point of going 100+ on public roads. I like to ride just to be riding. Why the desire to put others at danger? Immaturity? Stupidity?

This is the kind of thing you see when someone gets a liter bike. They get extra throttle happy. It is fun to just twist the throttle to the stop. In traffic.....you should have more self control. We probably all have done this at some point. But like the man said, bragging about it on-line...not the smartest thing. Why do you think so many liter bikes end up in the DUMP?

Yeah - travelling in a straight line at high speed with miles of straight road ahead is not nearly as thrilling as slowing down from top speed with the rear end fishtailing, into a 50mph corner while not being 100% sure you're gonna make it...:smile

Weaving through traffic certainly adds a dimension, but unfortunately also does a lot to make other drivers more eager to cause trouble for others of us out there minding their business on public streets

Yeah, I never understood the excitement of highway riding. Rather boring at any speed. More challenging to ride around a parking lot at slow speed, lol. Get to the track to get the blood pumping. Oh, and don't forget your speedo is off by about 15%, so 160 is really in the 140 range. Best to use a gps to gather true speed data.
