talented yes... inconsiderate of others and the consequenses of his actions, yes.
i'd hate to read another RIP thread but if a car ever cuts in front of him while doing a 150 mph wheelie, we will be reading one. I for one am glad that i am rarely out that late, I'd hate to be the innocent person he takes out; not if, but when something goes wrong

+1. Sure seems like the odds are heavily in favor of this ending 1 of 3 places, a jail cell (if you're lucky), a hospital, or the morgue.

they are at equal distance apart on the tire, could maybe hitting the line reflectors at that speed have any contribution to that?

The cause of the damage is running too low of tire pressure. The tire was getting so hot along the center that the rubber was coming apart. More air would have helped the tire resist heat build up and would have kept the tire together. Plain & simple. The tire did not "fail", it was misused.

obviously all the safe riding advice is good. but those of us who drive fast cars or ride our motorcycles fast on the streets know the risk involved. some of those posters in this thread telling him how to take it easy among other info have'nt ever seen speeds like some of us see. and i'm slow. but fast enough to where, yeah, i should go to the track. but i like the street. i will go track when the time is right. but i'll still ride reverse forest again anytime these guys are ready. my car goes 172mph gear limited. i did'nt find that out on the track. my point is it's kinda pointless to try to talk this guy down, lol. he knows what he''s doing. and doing it well

i saw zxalam post in here... have you seen 225mph?

I personally have bested your 172mph... but i fail to see how that should change how i feel about him doing 180+ on the 610 loop

Haven't met the guy but from the video, he got mad skills. I agreed with some of the posters that he should slow it down and get to the track to release that speed demon.
Slowblack, you got talents/skills, make mad money with your mad skills. The street is too dangerous and unforgiving. Don't let your talent/skills fall short on a rider down or rip thread.
