Re: Russian guy sure can ride

His first near-death experience is at 0:28, one of his slowest manoeuvres, where he almost crashes into the blue car on his left....

After that, I hope he dies anytime soon, so he won't take out any women with children crossing the street....

Re: Russian guy sure can ride

WHY....????

How many people (besides me) did he "scare the crap out of"

just another example of why "everybody" hates motorcycles

Clearly he has no regard for his life or anybody else's,

and I have to wonder about anyone that "admires" this kind of "behavior"

Smile Re: Russian guy sure can ride

While it is apparent that he has considerable experience riding. I have to wonder how he was able to gain the experience with that type of riding mentality or how much longer he will be around to get the experience that we are not invincible. I agree that it is stupid and a good reason why people hate m/c's. I have more respect for the 1%'s at least they just make a lot of noise and don't ride in such a manner as to put others in harms way. I like people to be able to express there riding talents but not on crowded public streets. Go off in some parking lot after hours and video tape your skills then post it online. I am sure others will appreciate your riding skills much more and you won't look like a reckless moron showing off endangering others. Just my opinion

I didn't see anything suggesting he's "good" or can ride at all. I see pure, dumb luck. That's it!

Re: Russian guy sure can ride

Not impressed.

When he can make the same run at the same time of the day with the same traffic on a GS-A with aluminum panniers and handguards, THEN I'll be impressed.

Re: Russian guy sure can ride

I kept thinking "surely this is a fake" but I can't figure out how he did it.

My next thought was why does he even bother with a helmet?

Re: Russian guy sure can ride

Kinda surprised both mirrors were still on the bike by the end of the video. He'll be a future motorcycle statistic.

He should try testing his skills in closed track racing. No place to hide then...you're either good and on the podium or humbled and sent back to your pit.

Re: Russian guy sure can ride

UNREAL.

I first said, man this guy is flying!, but, my God, what an idiot.

Imagine being in the oncoming traffic and seeing this yahoo coming at you at 100, pulling a wheelie riding the middle lane.

He'll not limp away from his crash. I hope he takes only himself "out".

Special place in Hell for him.

Irresponsible is not even close to being an adequate description for this idiot. Talk about making us all look bad. With his zero margin for error riding style he won't be around for long.

The problem with A/H's like him is they ALWAYS take someone else with them when they go tits up!

'The problem with A/H's like him is they ALWAYS take someone else with them when they go tits up!'

Sad, but very true. There is a perverse pleasure in seeing an idiot like this eat it in a solo crash or tangle with an equally stupid fellow rider/driver.

Thumbs down Re: Russian guy sure can ride

yep, the guys nuts....
however it LOOKS even worse because he's got a very wide-angle lens on the camera, probably something like the GoPro's 117deg viewing angle, and that just makes everything look far more extreme in terms of both speed and distances. A normal video cam would still look scary, just not quite as much...
...and I still think he's an idiot, but he must have lived long enough to post the footage.
