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.

BMW’s New In-Theater Ad Campaign.

BMW is using flashing lights to “burn” its initials into your brain so that when you close your eyes, you’ll continue to see the “B-M-W.”  The ad is for BMW Motorcycles, and when the professional rider says he takes corners at “200”  he is using kph, not mph, so that’s 124 mph. Still fast whether you are on a motorcycle or in a car.

Check it out, it’s pretty cool. I’d love to see it in a theater in the U.S.
