Our friends at Jalopnik found this video of this insane Russian motorcyclist speeding through heavy morning traffic on his Yamaha R1.  Hold on for 6 minutes and 37 seconds of white-knuckle speeding and weaving in and out of traffic on a major busy street in Moscow.

He not only pops wheelies, but he rides down the center of the double yellow line straight through opposing traffic at extreme speed.  At one point, I think he even slightly “clips” one car. You hear a sound and his head moves just a sliver to check what happened.  However when you are moving that fast, the last thing you should do is take your eyes off the road in front.

I’m glad he’s far away from LA — least a vast ocean and some major land masses away from our streets.
