Its no different from tracking, stunting, or straight line racing everyone has their fun way of enjoying motorcycle.

Useless wang waiving is the point. A poodle can ride a bike in a straight line.
Motorcycle riders kill me with that pointless statement.



Lol, well strap that turbo on and lets go.[/QUOTE]

I donít ride the street anymore, too many crazy cars. You live in Dallas, if you come track that thing let me know. I am always down to ride with other Bimmers on the track

These types of videos do nothing for me. All I see is a bunch of riders taking huge risks - sport riding is one thing - high speed runs like these - sooner or later - the odds will not be in their favor.

We have all ridden fast and still ride fast - that is the point of these machines and I get it - but when doing 150 mph/220 feet per second on a highway - time after time like these guys - well their odds of not getting creamed are going to the curb rather quickly.

Trust me I like spirited rides - which never involves the highway by the way - hitting terminal speeds does absolutely nothing for me - now coming out of a corner perfectly riding fast to the next corner and doing it again - well that gets my attention.

And certainly I ride my RR all the time where I hit 150 mph or more (at the track) - I just don't do it where it involves unsuspecting motorist driving cars or tractor trailers.

I must be old - I can remember way back when doing some very crazy stuff on the street - really glad I'm still here to write about it - these days I don't have it in me to do it.

Okay I'm done and I know I should sell my RR and buy a scooter and move into a senior citizens neighborhood.

Hey I said I used to do some crazy stuff - this scooter video just supports what I was saying - taking risks like that - sooner or later you are going to have a bad day.

Again I'm not saying I don't go out for a very spirited ride and push a few boundaries because I do - but I pick and choose when and where I do it - to lower the risk in doing so.

What I did when I was 30-40 years old - just not happening today.

Truth be told I'm way too afraid of getting mucked up because of me going out and riding like a madman on the street.

You guys know my story - I have a very large need for speed - I go to the track a lot - so when I take my street bikes out - that need is not there.

Oh my. After a 28 year layoff (returned to riding in 2014) I was sure I'd lose my license within 6 months. Fortunately I restrained myself. The first ride I went on that resembled what I did in my 30's, I was riding over my head on roads I had never seen and had 2 moments/ saves. It wasn't enjoyable. Since then I've had 3 similar rides and I loved them! I did 5 track days in'16, 30+ in'17 and my itch still isn't being scratched. I'm close to breaking the promise I made to myself when I bought the HP4. And that was to never race again. Purchased my AFM license and have to go through "new racer school" which make me laugh. I have no illusions of winning a championship or even placing. I've just never felt more alive or had more purpose than when the flag dropped. I need to feel that at least one more time. And by my old friends standards and my current friends standards, that makes me crazy. I've admitted to that since I was 17. Not all of us grow up.
