    Opinion on this video: H2 racing

    Curious what the opinion on videos like this are in general.


    I enjoy watching the occasional blast to high speeds, when I was much younger I went over 150 (indicated) a couple of times on a deserted country road. But these guys do multiple Interstate races at what has to be close to top speed of the H2 (180+).

    Utter stupidity! If (when) something goes wrong, the wreckage will spread for at least a mile and the only "first responder" needed will be the coroner.

    One of my buddies has 2, I know is rated at 500+ hp

    Don’t know the real number because the bike dyno shut down at 500

    Also owns a ‘Rsv factory or whatever it’s called nowadays

    Plus a few more top flute bikes

    I've watched a couple with this guy and don't get the point at all, anyone can sit on a bog straight highway and open a bike to its limits, I've done the same on every bike I've had just to see what it topped out at but I prefer to ride on the twistiest rd's I can find and could fall asleep keeping to the limit on a dual carriageway or motorway, it bores the tats off me.

    500bhp on the shop dyno would only be about 45 lbs of boost on methanol for a 1000cc inline 4 or MAYBE 30 psi on gasoline...

    They could ride naked for all the help any protective clothing could offer them at 300kph. Ask yourself when was the last time you saw a cow bouncing down the road at those speeds, would it get up unscathed?

    That would be a long slide. Friction burns, anyone?

    After a Kevin Schwantz crash from very high speed at Road America, a cornerworker came to assist the obviously shaken Texan. "Kevin, do you know what day it is?"

    "Well, for as long as I was sliding it might be Tuesday now!", quipped the 34.

    As I have mentioned in the past paramedics had to use a coal shovel to scrape up my friend Tiffany's first husband when he binned his new to him Supercharged Busa. What they could scrape up ended up in a Rubbermaid bin lined with an evidence bag while the rest was bleached and washed off the roadway with a fire hose. Positive ID was made from the inscription on the wedding ring and remaining teeth that were found matching his dental records. He pinballed between a tractor trail truck and the concrete barrier on one of our bay bridges so not much was left of him besides scraps of bone and flesh mixed with cloth, plastic and metal. He was wearing cruiser gear (jacket with no armor, gloves, sneakers, jeans and open face helmet) at the time. Perhaps a one piece race suit would have kept more of him contained but no way would have saved him. Friends on the fire rescue squad said he looked like he had been shredded up in a food processor.

    Track bikes belong on the track with no cars or trucks, having barriers designed to promote your chances of survival along with gear and skillset requirements.

    Thing is once you breach that 100mph on the road with all those pretty barriers, walls and poles they dot around everywhere whatever is harder than your bag of 9 pints of blood, grisle and 200 bones you're almost certain to not be in one piece when the firetruck arrives, according to a seventies psychedelic UK band band 'Death is silent, painless' but the actual dying on a bike is a noisy very painful affair but its over in a split second, thank fk for small mercies lol.
