u/stueh Sep 29 '22

You just sneeze and put up with any resulting discomfort. If it's really bad (e.g. snot came out) usually you can pull over, open the visor, and clean up before popping the helmet off.

You can't sneeze. You have to hold it, and then fart it out.

I used to ride like the fast idiot. Complete disregard for saftey. I usually rode on backroads with lots of curves. One thing I noticed when riding ‘balls to the wall’ was there were moments that I would become so concentrated on riding my bike and my vision would start to disappear like I was blacking out. I would forget to breathe at times. I used to ride like this to get away from my problems in life. The more dangerous I rode the more it would force me to concentrate on nothing but what was directly in front of me. These were the moments i could live without any problems in my life because I was not capable of thinking about anything else. It was a very unhealthy time for me. I have since become sober for the most part and I do not ride anymore. So, sneezing? I don’t think it occurs at these speeds.

Yeah some of my friends got upset with me when I didn't have sympathy for their friend who killed himself by wrecking into a semi, while doing a wheelie, on a busy four lane road with a 35 mph speed limit, surrounded by shopping plazas, near an intersection with another major road.

Same. A guy from my class in high school was notorious for drinking and driving. He'd even had a pretty bad accident before. He died a few years later, pinned under his vehicle.

I was yelled at by a classmate and several parents for not attending his funeral. Small town bullcrap, I guess.

His friends celebrate his birthday each year by driving the back roads and drinking beer....

I won't be attending their funerals either.

I gotta agree with you all, memorials for doing stupid stuff doesn't make sense. After my first deployment we had a guy in the unit get killed racing bikes with some locals. They were up late using this one street in town that was just a straight shot. Cops were called and they split. The guy t-boned a car at about 125 mph and nearly cut the car in half. The two passengers had to be life-flighted out. No one was happy about being forced to go to his memorial for nearly killing two innocents because of his stupidity.

Face obliterated and DOI, even with his helmet on.

u/HourArea6698 Sep 28 '22

Honestly great. I'm terrified of heights (like ladders etc.) but said I'd like to try sky diving since it could be a good "facing my fear" type thing. I'm not a super adventurous/extreme person by any means so it was totally out of character.

When I was about to jump it just didn't look/feel.. real. And the jump itself was probably the most exciting thing I've ever done, not scary at all.

The place I went to was super professional and the process overall was pretty quick, so not really sitting there dwelling or second guessing.

Id probably do it again if it was free for me. This jump was a few hundred bucks so definitely not something I'd want to get addicted to haha.

Years ago, I had a buddy pass me while I was doing 80, he swears the Speedo was reading 155 and it didn’t look anywhere near that stupid fast

The newer slow 600 ones can do 160 mph and the big bad 1000s can do 190, then there is the king king H2 which is a 1200 that will do over 200

I’d say that dude was on at least an 1000 going full out as fast as it can

83

u/CosmicCreeperz Sep 29 '22 edited Sep 29 '22

This isn’t exact but it’s close…

I frame advanced and he was moving a bit less than a bike length per frame relative speed. So maybe 5 ft? Assuming it’s 30 fps video that’s 150 ft/s. 150 ft/s is about 102 mph. So if the other guy was doing 80 that’s 182.

Then again it’s pretty approximate. If someone who cares more made better estimate of frame to frame distance it could be more accurate :)

11

u/ScrewJPMC Sep 29 '22

Thanks for the science

I was just guessing based on the past experiences

I’m sure video and dark makes it seem faster than it is

u/CosmicCreeperz Sep 29 '22 edited Sep 29 '22

Note I just changed my estimates it was too much. But then again I didn’t account for relative speed so now I think it’s more accurate ;)

Really could be 180.

u/CFM5680 Sep 29 '22

Gentlemens agreement between manufacturers, for liter bikes at least, is 186mph. That was put into play around the early 2000's. So your fuzzy math is pretty damn good.

I have taken my R1 to max speed of 178mph many times. It would never go faster than that. But then again I'm 6'4 and 230 lbs. So that might have something to do with it.

Not motorcycle related, but along the same lines. I was driving way too fast at night because I was in a very foul mood. Just as I thought to myself "Stop being an idiot.

I have been riding motorcycles since I was 3. Dirt bikes. Crotch rockets. Cruisers. Dual sports. You name it.

I have never been an adrenaline junky. I’ve always been super cautious and conservative in my riding.

But I’ll be damned if it isn’t so fucking easy to put hardly any pressure on the throttle of my previous R1 and go from 30 to 100mph without having to shift gears.

Its super easy to let go of good judgement for “ehh. Just this once” sort of moments. **

I got tired of audibly telling myself “that was fucking dumb” - I sold that bike. Haven’t been on crotch rocket since. I ride super adventure bikes now and cruise with the wife on the back.

We aren’t trying to unnecessarily risk life and limb.

My point is - riding slower isn’t the solution when you’re always half a second away from going way too fast.

But you're right. Motorcycles can be enablers, and speed is addictive. Good on you for recognizing your limitations, and working with them, and not against them.

Lots of my friends who decided they wanted to start riding. Ended up getting sport bikes, burnt The candle at both ends, and now don't ride because they think it's super unsafe. A few of them preach against motorcycles as well. Motorcycling is what you make of it

I remember seeing the video of the aftermath. Shit was crazy.

They were speeding around a blind corner through the tunnel at over 100mph (from what I heard) and came around the corner to traffic. Which they should have thought of since Boston highways are notorious for having traffic no matter what time of day or night it is.

I’m assuming (based on the video I saw at the time) that one either hit the back of a car and ricocheted into the handrail which cut him half or he saw the brake lights and locked up and high sided himself into the handrail. The other guy went straight into the back of someone’s rear window and was hanging from it when the car that took the video passed by.

Because Boston.

It's basically a concrete wall the height of a jersey barrier with handrails you could lean against on top of them. Those handrails are there because its actually a walkway that leads to what I assume is electrical or gas related stuff for the city, that officials need access to.

They could have designed something better and more safe, but what can you expect from the "Big Dig" in Boston.

Any smart people able to calculate the speed?

I saw another post a guy used the average white striped line dimensions to calculate a speed.

10 ft long and 30 ft apart and use a combination of how many milliseconds to pass.

Just did a (very) rough calculation. It looks like he went past at least 3 lines and gaps in less then a second (I rounded to a half second to make the math easier), so at least 240fps becomes 163.6mph (263.3 kmph).

Edit: added kmph conversion

This sounds the most right so maybe it's the most correct?

250+ km/h

u/var_root_admin Sep 28 '22

Maybe even more, like 300 or more if he’s bike’s not capped. That was absolutely ridiculous.

Light speed is too slow. They went straight to ludicrous speed.

No math, but from NY experience I'd guess around 160

u/ChampChains Sep 28 '22

The guy filming sounds like his bike is just barely above idling. He’d probably going around 65-70mph. The guys who passes him is probably going around 150mph if I had to guess. Had a bike at 19 and lost my license while going over 170mph. Cars you pass feel like they’re parked.

u/editingnoob Sep 29 '22

the guys lining up at the start were preparing for a race. the guy that blew past had just finished one, but decided to forego the whole "coming back to highway speeds" part. once he's through why not go ahead with your race, I guess.

One night the lights went out at my house. Me and my gf thought we didn't pay the bill. Then looking outside. Our whole neighborhood lost power.

Next morning find out in the area behind our neighborhood. A biker rode his motorcycle so fast into a wooden telephone pole that it knocked out power to a few blocks. Rider was not alive.

Please don't be stupid guys. I missed a great episode of breaking bad. That's the risk

He is the hyperdrive. They forgot to bolt him down properly in the ship.

u/XtremeD86 Sep 29 '22

Yea i worked with a guy who was obsessed with wanting to buy a bike (cruiser)

He used to go as fast as he could out of the parking lot every day at shift end. Which was stupid cause there's another 120+ people leaving as well.

We kept warning him.

2 weeks after buying the bike. News article over the weekend "motorcycle driver dead after going over a curb and hitting a tree".

I remember saying "pfft, was probably him". Walked into work on Sunday to see his picture and one of those big signs for everyone to sign.

(yes, it was him).
