Never - because I don't do that crazy stuff and I certainly don't go that fast. That rider just used all of his 9 lives on that save.

I got into a little race with an Aston Martin Vanquish S on a major highway in South Florida (think flat and straight). The guy was still accelerating as my K-RS hit top end, nothing left. Good times!

Hey, there's a lot of sick people that need organs. I just hope it's a single vehicle thing when it happens.

Re: Does this ever happen to you while street racing?

The YouTube is full of idiots like this. The worst are the one who drive too fast and abruptly in urban surface street traffic. They take videos and act ( one assumes sincerely believe ) that they are aggrieved when people get angry with them. They are a blight on motorcycling They should be reviewing the videos and then crushing the idiots bikes. Maybe their bones as well.

The brain isn't fully developed till 25-27 years of age. Hope that explains his action and he lives long enough to fully develop his brain.

Right?! I had no idea what it was before the "race" started. I actually had to work through traffic as I was in the back of the pack getting on the highway, he was near the front of the pack. When the road opened up and there was no more traffic, there was no way he was going to let me pass. It's all good.

Dayum... that Lambo sounds Bad Ass! Sinister.
As far as the biker, all I see is a guy that needs to invest in a steering damper

Re: Does this ever happen to you while street racing?

Never that exact thing, but some of you here that know me would believe similar situations. I’ve had to duck under the mirrors of pickups in fast lefties more than I want to admit. And I believe I posted a video that easily won the “Stupidest Pass Ever” thread a number of years back...
