    Crazy biker videos...

    This guy is CRAZY. He seems to hunt out the cops and then just drive at ridiculous speeds to outrun them, pulling a few tricks on the way!

    Could you imagine seeing a guy drive past you on a bike at 200 mph doing a wheelie?

    sooner or later (sooner probably) he will crash and/or get arrested.

    Yep, or injure someone else. It's interesting what lengths some people go to to get a thrill though.

    My hubby and I ride... and you're right...the film in the video is over the top. Nevertheless, I certainly can imagine 200mph He's got a ZX12R and all I can say one must do when riding with him is "hang on".

    Does no one pay attention to detail? Based on the cars in the video, especially the cop car, and all the road signs, he is clearly in europe. So he would be doing 200 kilometers per hour not miles per hour. There is a big difference in speed there.

    About a 75MPH difference I -think-.... the point being though...it's fast, it's dangerous, but for many a risk worth taking for "fun".

    On the flipside..though I do enjoy "the risk", I do NOT condone putting other lives at risk as is done in these types of videos...

    Looks like a great thrill, but it's not worth the risk of hurting innocent bystanders.

    What on Earth do they mean by a 'controlled environment' then?

    There were clearly other cars on the road, and I doubt very much that they were in on the act.

    It's sort of like the Jackass disclaimer where they inform you that what you have seen was perfomed by 'trained professionals', or something to that effect.

    This reminds me of the matrix reloaded freeway scene! oddly familiar.....

    lol bull$**** those are controlled environments! he's doing 270 down a freeway and weaving in and out of traffic and going in between cars, trucks and buses lol

    He'll be on the 7 'oclock in a body bag no doubt.

    I am very surprised that he lasted long enough to even begin to make a video. It only takes one split second for his entire body to be crushed.. Its not worth the risk -- I like risking stuff, but you have to be literally insane to do that.

    The police were like filming part of the second one.
    In the first movie, did you see when he was speeding by, the cops set up a road block on a turn, and all they did was watch when the he drove past them?
    I think they all were into it..
    Or maybe im wrong..

    Ever see the movie Ronin? They had a massive car chase through some tunnels, weaving in and out of traffic. Or how about the movie The Transporter, where they have the sweet chase in the first 10 mins.

    Just because a film is low budget, doesnt mean they cant get trained stunt drivers and permission from the cities and police to film.

    Perhaps the more low budget look and the camera shots add to it by making it seem less hollywood and more realistic, when in fact, it could be just as staged as any old hollywood movie.

    However I think the motor bike video was all real.

    That guy is a totally skilled rider to be able to take all those risks and still be alive. Very calculated risks. Obviously a professional rider. I am impressed. Makes me wonder if all the "traffic" on the road was real or staged. At times it looked like the road was a cloded course.

    I'm a rider myself and at many points during the video wondered how he got through it. I consider myself an average skilled rider. But I would have killed myself trying to do what was in that video.

    It just could not have been real. Either fake or staged.

    The guy is nearly as mad as I used to be. I say used to be as hitting a car at 140MPH tend to slow you down a bit, broke my right femur in 52 places, and the police had to sweep up various other bits of bone off the road and rush them to the hospital. One day the guy WILL make a slight miscalculation and bingo! Another organ doner.
