oh man i haven't seen anything that crazy before
he went easily over 300
i gotta ride that bike!
I'd say he's probably clipping between 100 - 150 mph on most of those wheelies.
did you check out that 600 something hp Hyundai? omfg it would wax us all at the strip
well while I have to admit the video is impressive, this is exactly the kind of video that gets the younger riders killed. Showing a guy doing 100mph wheelies and lane splitting in public traffic is not the best message. They should show him do stunts or go fast on a closed track I think that would be equally impressive.
I was riding with someone the other day who was nowhere near as proficient as the guy in the video and he was splitting lanes and doing wheelies within a group of 7 riders in stagged formation. I did not find that funny at all having someone pull stuns right next or behind me within a meter or two. Nothing against stunts, If you wann do one, go up far in front or fall back.
Thats sick....crzy ass high speed wheelies....hey Kahuna gonna turbo your BUSA?
An entertaining video, for sure. If he has a habit of doing that in traffic, he'll be dead soon.
naaah, no turbo for me, the bike is too fast for Canadian roads as it is
Hey maybe i should find a turbo for the gixxie eh?
Or maybe just get somithn bigger than a 6 !!!! hahaha
That was a very cool car! I bet that was an engineering challenge to get both engines and especially the trannies syncronised.... (cable shifter?)Originally Posted by fetdex
A 10.98 is pretty impressive for a car all right..... and your right...he would likely hand me my ass at the strip.... However an experienced strip rider would kill him on just about any modern sportbike.
I’m not crazy, I just need to get off this island. The doctors don’t believe I invented the chocolate éclair. But I did. I’m going to burn them all and drink soup from their skulls! Happy soup! Untie me and I’ll kill you last!

Your right... it's not the best message... hitting a curb/pavement at 150 is almost surely a death sentance... so consider that a public saftey message.
However, I'm also a martial arts expert... and every time I see a Kill Bill or Slasher movie, I don't walk into a Bar and start challenging everyone to a fight that looks at me funny.
But for all the young impressionables out there with no self-control... keep it to the track.
Racer, as I said I enjoyed watching it as much as you.
18 year old riders are certainly no artists. They think they are invicible because they are not mature enough to know otherwise. The caution postings in this thread might at least make them think about tryng to be a copy cat.
I have seen a similar video. A guy racing through traffic on the Paris circle Highway in commuter traffic. He managed to set a new record for the full circle and the video shot from the tank mount actually was spectacular specially since he also raced through tunnels.
i don't know what vid you are watching but that speed read 290km/hr when the busa passed him on 1 wheel....
that is a little faster than 100mph...something like 180mph...
