No matter what anyone says manuvering at those speeds through any traffic as smooth as he does does take skill and and a reasonable amount of stupidity

Or talking on the cellie, reading, applying makeup, changing the music on their ipod while wearing headphones, eating, chewing gum, and my personal favorite: punishing the bishop. I am convinced that 99.9% of the people on planet earth can not drive they merely steer and hope. Me included.

I always assumed with ghostrider he/she/they worked with spotters, or some variation of navigators ala rally car, or maybe a plane like Alex Roy. In addition maybe some sort of traffic assistants like smokey and the bandit people driving ahead to try and make some holes in traffic or distractions for the police. No sense in saying fsck it we will do it live when a little bit of planning stacks the odds in ghostriders favor and produces a much better piece of film.

I thought the original was in England.
None of the highway signs look like anything I've seen in the states I've been in so it doesn't look like the U.S. either, but across the pond they drive on the left . . . .
I couldn't make out a single sign. His speedo is set on metric, but that doesn't really mean anything.

That guy is an idiot

His lack of regard for others safety trumps any skill or talent he has. If he wants to flirt with death he should at least enlist in a military career to contribute to a greater cause

In Europe they drive on the right side of the road

Don't get me wrong.....my bike is going to see triple digits every time I take her out for a spin. Difference these days is I'm not zipping in and out of traffic (where so many things can go wrong). Main things I have to worry about while riding is road kill, dirt/gravel and deer.
