Doing 185 MPH ? on Public Roads

Sometimes people do stupid things. Riding this fast on a public road is most definitely one of them. The video claims 299 kmh, which converts to roughly 185 mph, but some math wizards out there on the internet are claiming more like 135 mph. Regardless of the actual number, I think we can all agree that the rider was clearly not following the rules of the road. Let’s review the facts:

1) The symbol on the upper triple tree is found on a Yamaha R1.

2) R1′s are rumored to be able to reach close to 185 miles per hour. Real life, tire size,  and sprocket sizes will throw these numbers off.

3) The rider likely has some serious seat time considering he/she didn’t get swallowed by the back of a Subaru.

4) The rider is probably more young than old. Helmet cam + zero fear + motorcycle + posting on internet.

So who is this man of mystery? A professional racer? A fearless teenager? Or maybe it just a random guy on a fast bike that was extraordinarily lucky that he didn’t slide himself into a truck at 185 mph that day. Will we ever find out? So many unanswered questions within this video.

The Final Launch – Now You’ll Never Be An Astronaut.

Today was the final launch for a manned space craft by the NASA program (for now).  That means that all of your lofty dreams of being a real life astronaut, and repelling off of that weird mysterious face on the moon are now null and void.  You will never feel the force of a rocket on your back pushing you to 17,000 mph, and you won’t be taking the moon rover over any sweet jumps.  Again, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  Luckily for you, you have something more exciting than intergalactic space travel in your life.  I’ll give you a hint.  The special thing is in front of you right now.  It’s called – a sextuplet of shiny new NASA related pictures! » Continue reading more of this post…
