Victoria High Run. Repost?

Didn't see this one in a search for 'Victoria' on the first 3 pages.


A rapid 299kph run on the Victoria Highway. All the Canadians already thumbs downed it.

Stupid? Yes.
Reckless? Yes.
Awesome? Quite.

Canadians don't even think drinking a beer anywhere but indoors is acceptable behavior.

This guy must be a total rebel.
I hear there are a LOT of crazies in Canada.

That kind of riding is just suicidal, but I don't bash it. I really admire it as a testament to what a single human being is capable of.

I've been to Victoria, where this is supposed to be. It's the middle of friggin no where, and that highway goes to no where but rural villages and bears. You would think, hey it's a frontier, I'm going to blast at 180 mph, no big deal.

The cops actually watched this youtube video, then tracked down the author, and seized the bike. Even though it didn't belong to him (it was in his mother's name). Then they said he refused to cooperate, like he's going to say: yup, it was me, I did it.

I'm sure the family will get the bike back, and they can't charge him with , but it's still crazy. It could be ANYONE's Yamaha R1, lol, not just the one that happened to be near the youtube video uploader. The 'uploader' didn't even have a motorcycle license, so it couldn't have been him! Everyone knows you can't ride a motorcycle without a license.

Yeah, I read the story.

I wonder what would happen if I posted one of GhostRider's videos on my channel and said it was me riding.

Strange times we live in what with all the video and the internet and the words.

An HPD officer would thumbs up it, then post it on facebook.
