What a pair of Prats Why don't they just go do a trackday ? because somebody will be able to beat them.
What are they trying to prove ,only what we all know that a bike is much faster than even a super car let alone that BMW.

Will people who see this view all bikers as reckless idiots ? yes
Will BMW drivers be viewed in the same light as bikers ? no

isnt the bike an under cover cop or something? with the blue flashing lights?

beemer driver is very skilled but the biker is even more skilled in my book, he keeps the pace in the bends and on roads where there is always grit and gravel off the beaten track, and they are using hard shoulder and everything. bikes have far far less grip on the bends and that is where they traditionally lose out.

dont agree with your view below

very dangerous behaviour on the road as it just wants one person to make an unanticipated move as an innocent bystander and crash bam not good

i should think the biker could hold his own quite nicely on a track which is where all that should have taken place quite honestly

This vid is for sale in my local bike shop-it's called 'ghostrider goes undercover'.

No, we all KNOW BMW drivers are wankers with penis envy-they don't need to prove it

have never tried it personally , but a few track tests in bike mags etc have shown the bike to be faster than super cars even in the corners .

Its hard to see in the vidio but because the car driver appears to be deliberatly sliding the back end of the car sideways for a spectacular effect . That is not a fast way to corner and the bike is nowhere near its limits , in fact most of the time its only being revved about half way exept where the car is allowed to get ahead so the bike can be given a bit more throttle. The bike is being ridden quite eratically .
