Thumbs up The NEED for SPEED!!

Most range in the 2-4 minute or so mark.

I love these mini movies. At the end of this one, it sounds like a jet plane shutting down. Good stuff! FLAT OUT!

In that R1 turbo video, it looks like that blue car was trying to keep up. It did OK up to about 155 mph but that seemed to be its top end.

Keep in mind that is 155 kph, not mph. Note the european style trucks and left hand driving.

Fast enough, though.

I did convert. The car hit 250kph so I converted.

Some of those guys are nuts. I wouldn't be doing some of those stunts on public roads. I've seen too many wrecks and tried to save a motorcycle drivers life after a high speed impact. He didn't make it.

I thought of the wreck scenerio also. A coworker who was a very very careful harley rider was hit from behind last November 15th by a 19 year old teenage girl. He survived, but is paralysed from the waist down. Makes you realize how quickly your life can change. It appears it will never be the same for him. He had just turned 50 and getting close to retirement. Very sad to see.

It's nice how those euro drivers pull over and get out of their way. Over here everyone would be scrambling to pull in front of them and slow them down.

In this (graphic) incident, a motorcycle took a blind corner in excess of 90MPH (that was the police estimate). A pickup was pulling out of a driveway and the motorcycle hit the side of the box area of the truck.

The passenger on the bike flew over the box and was found several hundred feet away (with scrapes/broken bones). The driver wasn't so fortunate. He was partially decapitated (if there is such a thing) but there wasn't much connecting his head. I literally tried to hold/keep his head attached to the rest of him but he lost too much blood and didn't make it.

Guys that drive like that give people on bikes a bad reputation.
I wish he had a rear-facing camera so at the end of the day he could see how many accidents he caused since people had to react to his insanity.

Hey BCZoom.... I know all to well about what can happen as I crashed back in 1985. I can tell you that it's not fun losing it at triple digit speeds! I'll try to dig up the photos.

This one here is about the Suzuki Hayabusa. At about the minute and a half mark of the 3 minute total they travel the highway. This one has front AND rear cams!

Some succeed and some do not. Here are some mishaps.
