facebook is a puppet of the CIA. I setup my computer devices to not access any Facebook servers a long time ago.

One's lay-down position w/fairing on that style bike is key. Myself, getting to 100mph w/o fairing in a sit-up position is like getting beat in the chest with 2x4's , as well as feeling up-pressure from my pseudo 1/2 helmet (as opposed to down pressure from a full face)....

Try looking up the ghost rider videos from....I wanna say Sweden. He had,has a modded,turboed gsxr 1000+ cc bike or maybe I'm forgetting those facts too

Bottom line is, it's filmed and many many different videos of him ripping through roads, high speed chases, he even mocks and loses the cops multiple times.

PLEASE tell me that's not actually you!

Speed runs? At night? On an unlit, public highway???

I love me some big bike action, but this is just stupid.

Takes a lot of talent to hold the throttle open.
Rob should go to a racetrack where he'll build real skill and
more importantly, he won't put the general public at risk.
Course I was young and foolish once too.

October 14, 2004, Minnesota (USA) motorcyclist Samuel Armstrong Tilley set what is believed to be a world record for speeding on public roads. No doubt people have gone faster on public roads, but Tilley had the misfortune to do so without noticing the police plane above him, and was officially clocked at 205.11mph by a handheld stopwatch. The ticket has made news around the world, with many people proclaiming the speeding ticket must have been a mistake as motorcycles simply don't go that fast.

Tilley topped the previous highest known speed recorded in a traffic infringement, set by New Yorker Dr. William Faenza in a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo at 182 mph in a 55 mph zone.

Always been a Harley fan and had a couple over the years as I have never been a crotch rocket or rice burner fan. Fastest I have ever felt comfortable on a bike is just shy of 100 and that was on open interstate. Then again I've never had a deathwish.
