Motorcycle Racing in Austria @ 235km/h

Two motorcycles racing on the narrow, winding roads of the Austrian countryside at a speed of 235 km/h. Insane behavior but exciting to watch. Can you spell 'death wish'?

Bliksem!

It always amazes me how quickly those things accelerate once they get a gap (or make one for that matter)

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

I used to do this when i was younger... (sorry (to myself) )

going in between lanes cars traffic people...its crazy.. Such adrenaline, uncaring and its doomed to have a disastrous end if done long enough.

Im so happy i converted to a DS bike, and do not miss risking my life for no reason.

I suppose the first years of biking for youngsters are the most dangerous ones. There is no sense of responsibility towards yourself or others, recklessness is running in your veins, and death does not worry you one bit. You dont care..

thats the reason why in later years i started having day dreams about bad bad endings..

If i have a child one day, i actually dont know what im going to do !!!  :eek7:
