    Fastbikes ==> Honda VTR - Ducati 916 - Suzuki TL 1000 R

    I came across this entertaining 30min video today on a forum. These guys have a death wish and at the end one of them nearly gets his wish.

    I remember seeing that, I was pretty shocked by how many risks Byrne was willing to take. Racers tend to be pretty docile on busy roads, too many obstacles. Then I suppose it's just proof that peer pressure works.

        These were cool.
        They used to produce these all the time.
        My mate has the entire set on DVD.

        Shakey IS the man though.. You need to see the one where he takes his road test on a (then) brand spanking new Duc 916!!!!

        Also the ride from their villa somewhere in Spain to the local nightclub on scooters. Shakey wheelies the ENTIRE way including stopping at lights....

          Yes, it helped that he planned his rides, and had spotters along the way to signal if there were accidents, heavy traffic, etc. As opposed to the hooligans at FB. Gotta admit it's entertaining, but the liberties they took/take. I just have a problem when they endanger others is all.

          Anyone who could hang onto that Aprilia Cube is the shit.
          The pictures of Colin Edwards after his first ride on that thing were priceless. Looked like he'd seen a ghost, you could just about smell the cold sweat and adrenaline.
