Here’s What Riding A Motorcycle At 299 km/h Looks Like (Video)

299 km h motorcyclistBefore I show you this clip of a motorcyclist speeding along a Victoria, B.C. highway at speeds of nearly 300 km/h, I believe it is my duty to tell you that I do not condone these sorts of actions.  In fact, I feel as though anyone taking part in them certainly deserves to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I should also mention that I am not the only one who feels this way, as many YouTube commenters have also voiced their disapproval regarding this biker’s risky ride.

On a side note, how do they get 299 km/h as the exact speed?  How can they possibly tell that the needle on the speedometer was at 299 km/h and not 300 km/h, or 298 km/h?  Is this supposed to be some viral video marketing scheme, where they figure 299 km/h is more appealing than 300 km/h, the same way $2.99 is more appealing than $3.00?

Here’s a look at this motorcyclist’s 299 km/h ride through Victoria, B.C.
