With that sort of riding sooner or later it will end in tears for someone.

None of our members would ever participate in such reprehensible behavior.

Re: Interstate race with traffic....

I can't figure out where they are. I'm guessing somewhere in Europe. The signs go by too fast to get much of a clue. I'm also surprised to see the stationary motorcyclists on the shoulders. Lots of them as well as such a large group of "racers". As noted above, someone might not have a good outcome!

Re: Interstate race with traffic....

These videos do nothing for me other than to shake my head watching all these really dangerous riders recording their stupidity.

We have all ridden fast on the street and certainly have done a little highway thrill riding but at least speaking for myself not like these dummies - I've typically picked a place that I know well and have let it rip for a short blast.

If they hurt or kill themselves well so be it but if they hurt or kill someone else - well that is the issue.

Not to mention packs of riders like these absolutely destroy the motorcycle image to so many motorist and bystanders.

I know I'm getting old but all these videos are not cool.

Nice ducati sport classic at 2:00.

I think I saw 220kph which is pretty fast on public roads. It's the passing that gets me.


motorcycles and motorcycle racing is absolutely exploding in thailand, malaysia.

Amen.

Not only the proximities but also the speed differences between the passers and the passees.

Jim, I'm wondering Malaysia as I tried blowing up one of the roadsigns and thought I read Kuala Lumpur on one of them.

It's THIS ^^^^ for me. I don't mind the proximity IF (big IF) the speed delta is something less than 15 mph which this is most certainly NOT.
All that watching these kinds of videos does for me is reminds me why I'm so grateful to be able to let it out on a RACE TRACK. Is it spring yet?

Wherever it is, that is very high quality pavement.

Malaysia, I picked up Janda Balk from a street sign and googled it.
