These pics from Sweden - guy doing about 250km/h when the golf got in the way. Think that's what they're trying to avoid with the big fines!
Everyone dead


 


ive seen those pics before - i'm still not convinced that a honda NSR 400 can go 250, but point taken  :wink:

Remember this similar site?  Just the place to sober up the speed junkies a bit.

Hectic stuff.  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

It almost makes me want to stop riding a bike!

Public road + 300kph does not necessarily = reckless.

What's the big deal? Most of the bike riders I know ride their bikes flat out once in a while when road conditions allow. If not, what's the point of owning one?

What worries me the most is not the speed some riders like to travel at but the 18-20 year old who buys a super bike with no experience and thinks he can control this rocket on two wheels.
IMO when buying a super, bike special track training should be included in the price and should be conpulsary before being allowed on the road.
This would most proberly only work in the perfect world but.........it might just save some lives.

its all fun an games til someone gets hurt ...

past weekend an oke crashed into a car, head on collision out near becker schools ...penny to a pound the biker was speeding as he crossed his lane .....  thankfully all survived as i can ascertain.

Edit: just heard ,said rider passed away sadly.

now if i was driver of said cage i would ensure the book is thrown at the biker ...

okes have gotta learn that its NOT ok to do this on public roads ,295km/h should be jail time , in fact anything over 200 should carry compulsory jail time ....

:idea:  we should start a fundraiser amongst fellow bikers to help him pay his fine!

Some more pictures of motor vehicles that 'got in the way' of speeding motorcycles.  One can only speculate at what speeds these collisions occurred ... it was definitely not at 60 kmph!

4. nog 2km verder sit die laaste kar, maar hierdie ou het n tralie hek met spikes wat hy oor die pad sleep en verhoed dat jy verby jaag vir die 4rde keer.


Just bunny hop over the spikes.... :twisted:  :D
Gewoontlik n@@i ek reguit aan op fyndraai.

I would help this guy get out of jail if I knew him, but a collection to pay his fine? I don't think so! That type of speed on public roads is stupid! He can sell his bike to help pay for the fine, that way the roads will be safe for the rest of us for a while!
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Not in a cold day in hell would I help a guy that's been caught for speeding, not because I think it's wrong, but because everybody pays for his/hers own pleasure.
He choose to let his righthand slip, he can pay for that luxury
