Like Luke Skywalker In The Forest Of Endor

This video is crazy, ridiculous, practically unrealistic. Watch all six minutes because the craziest stuff happens near the end. At one point you might actually grip your desk and wonder if he’s Neo in the Matrix. But no, it’s just an insane Russian guy on his morning commute. Gridlock? What gridlock? All I see are open roads.

According to the place where I grabbed this, its a “stupid-fast literbike” Yamaha R1. The video shows a 6-minute 25-mile commute through Russian traffic and a “powerful two-wheeled samurai sword”.

    Ok he might have nerves of steel, but everyone he passed will have to go home for a quick change of underwear!!!

    O.K. ……… the guy had to slow down a few times and almost stopped once when he came up behind another motorcycle that sort of surprised him !

    Skill wise it seem easy if it was a computer game and one had an infinite number of lives to do-over and not get killed.

    I wonder what the fine would be like in Ontario ….. LOL, assuming that any cop car could catch him and if I was him in Ontario doing this stuff I would tape over the license plate to not get arrested later: Might as well break another law if you are already breaking a dozen ones a dozen times. ( I only mention Ontario because I think it has the strictest traffic laws and biggest fines in Canada LOL ).

    Fascinating but don’t do this at home kiddies ! White knuckle time just watching !

    What a pansy. I was stationed in Naples, Italy from ’99 -’03 and this guy have lasted about 10 minutes in downtown Naples.

    Seen this before. There is a series of crazy bike ride videos on youtube, some American, many European, but the craziest are the Russians.
