+1 watching excessive speeds on some of the videos posted around here makes me cringe. . .maybe because I was once that type of rider and I know how lucky I was to make it past that stage in one piece.

Target Fixation - I've caught myself doing it before, it is just takes practice to keep your eyes from focusing on things like that. Look but do not stare, it can be easier said then done sometimes.

1-3 months experience and entering an unfamiliar curve at nearly triple digits... wow! You don't know how lucky you are to have walked away from this! I've had to watch very familiar curves end the lives of very experienced riders. This is a dangerous sport. I'm glad you are taking the incident seriously. I hope you use this as that one mistake that will propel you into becoming a consummate motorcycle rider and discovering the limits of both yourself and your machine. It will amaze you what that thing is capable of. Do it at the track - best money you'll ever spend. Donít for a second think that just because this didnít hurt you this time that something else even less spectacular might not next time! Best of luck in the future Ė Iím glad youíre ok!!

Why? To each his own but that right there is some dumb . Gravel, pothole, dead animal, piece of tire, oil, rebar, coolant and any of the other things that you see on the road every single time you are on the road will not only prove to be fatal but wreck at those speeds and you won't even look human. The trick to riding a bike on the streets for a really long time and not dying is simple...DO YOUR BEST TO GIVE YOURSELF AN OUT. Most of the time you see those things BEFORE you hit them, but when you are going 160 mph you probably aren't going to see it until it's underneath you. If you go down on a curve at 110mph or a straight at 160mph on a public road your body is going to impact an inanimate object on the side of the road simply because THERE IS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO HIT. You will look like a stepped on bratwurst, your coffin will just hold a bucket of random bits and gravel, someone will post an RIP thread about you that will be only 2 pages long, RACER X will use you as example to scare new riders, your girl will move on and end up with some other guy 3 months later just so she can forget about you faster, your best friend will be selling plates of luke warm BBQ at $5 a pop outside of some dive just so your family can afford to put you in the ground, the Montgomery County paper will dedicate a whole paragraph just for you, and you will be remembered as just another idiot who died on some country road in the middle of nowhere while making an amateur racing video to post on youtube to entertain his friends. End rant.

That is probably the best and most concise write-up on the truth of the matter. With few exceptions people have to come to that conclusion on their own. The guys that ride like that either get hurt or have an epiphany and take it to the track for good.

Yes most have to come to the conclusion on their own. I used to ride much crazier and am no saint but I would never ride 160 mph for 5 minutes down a curvy road. I don't understand it. If you were to ask most of these people about taking on other seemingly smaller risks they would say, " no." Screw a hooker without a condom, why no then my junk might fall off. Get my girlfriend to quit taking birth control because it makes her a . I don't want a baby, I'm not ready for that. Keep a loaded firearm within reach of your child. That's totally irresponsible. Drive around with no seatbelt. The airbag would break my nose if I wrecked. Get drunk on a Monday night. I have to work in the morning. Start my own business. What if I can't pay my bills. Risk being torn limb from limb riding a bike 120+ when I didn't even bother to see if it had air in the tires before I left. Oh yeah, I do that every Sunday morning. WTF.
