Whoa!!!!! So if it was in kph what were the speeds in mph? And this is why I wouldn't be a passenger, you have no control of what's happening. I don't understand how females hop on so willingly. Even the best riders can't overcome some situations. I guess the rider died?

the lawyer says MPH. but they are not passing cars at 2x their speed, but 160kph = 100mph, which looks right.

but 160mph is much more dramatic.

I would expect that behavior from a child, swerving in and out at 2x or 3x speed of everyone else

and just look at his buddies "skills"

100kph = 62.14 mph. They were going a lot faster than 62.14 mph at the times the speedo was showing 100

they sure as were not going 160mph, then the cars next to them are doing 100+

at the 1:00 mark, speedo says 158, he cruises past a car, but biker is not 2x car speed, and thats assuming car was going 80 (which i doubt)

Check the video where the speedo shows 100 and he's leaving a car in the dust at 1:17

That video is pretty much what my father was doing when he died, only he was by himself. no other riders, and no helmet. He went UNDER the 18 wheeler though.

May not have been running stock gearing but I think the speedo is closer to MPH than it is KPH

Can't see the vid, sure it's not 188 instead of 100...or possible that his actual rate of acceleration is faster than the display can accurately indicate?

Yea, I'm sure. I'm watching the video on a PC plus the speedo showed like 109 and 112 around the same time
