Have any of you guys ever went on youtube and searched "Ghost rider"? He's a norwegian cyclist who rides a turbocharged hayabusa/GSX-R1000K7, the **** he does makes this look like childs play... its ridiculous.
Watching that video makes me cry... thats such a nice ride. At least the guy was wearing gear....

idk i have much more respect for guys that ride like that then guys that do ****in supermans and **** on the highway w/o gear. they're riding to their limits, whereas these stunting douches are just trying to impress/scare people.

Huh, he had several chances to just pull out and go left around the car.

xactly what i was thinking. but i think he might have got some high speed wobble, if you check his bars right before the crash it looks like he either hit something or tried to correct something.

Probably locked up the rear brakes and tried to ride it out. That's why you don't want to use that crap. If he locked up the front, he could of just let go and moved left.

yeah I watched it again, he definitely doesnt lock up the back, it would be sliding all over the place. He just committed to braking. Should of went around. Overestimated the speed of that car by a lot.

yayup. i'm still goin w/ some wobble, he prolly panicked. you can tell the bike dips forward hard, so he prolly did end up just breaking instead of trying to swerve.

I give mad props for the skills of course, but the fact that they were doing it on such heavily trafficked roads, respect drops to nil...they could have hurt ALOT of other people with that crap...
