I just can't relate to this attitude....death wish....as you correctly put it. If the rider is so 'hot', then get to the track and not endanger the public. Oh yea did I mention giving all other MCs a bad name. Locally, I am struggling with the fact that one of the group was rear ended after stopping by a 15 year old in a car. Paraplegic outcome. I just don't get it.

Dang! My cheeks are still tight. I can not believe some cage did not cut him off. Here in the god 'ole USA some wackmeat would have cut him off to "teach him a lesson". Just shows you that over in Europe they give the motorcycle a little more respect, even if they are on a death wish run.

He died

The guy later was killed doing this. So I'd say the death wish statement was true.

The Paris ring test is a 19 miles (I think) ride - pretty impressive to do it in 11 min in rush hour traffic.

The "driving culture" in paris is very different. Cars are familiar with bikes driving "in between" and do indeed respect that bikes don't have to stay in line. Unfortunately that's not the case in Denmark where I live ;-(

Cool french drivers

ive travelled in France for 20 years - French driving standards are the best in europe, car drivers never seem to do the "unexpected" .

I have been around this road a few times , and been popping around 100+mph with no problem..

when another biker criticises this type of action, I have to ask why have you bought a 130bhp/155mph machine if your never going to use it,, BMW make a bike called a C1 ..

i bought a bike to enjoy speed, freedom , thrills, performance ............and i hope that i always will , when i dont - ill buy a harley
