YouTube biker clocked at 189mph

'Lets av sum fun!!'

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Gloucestershire Police are investigating a YouTube video which appears to show a Kawasaki ZX10R clocking up an impressive 189mph:

According to the Sun, the "speed freak forces other drivers to change lanes as he heads in the direction of the A417 Swindon to Gloucester road", while his machine is "also seen weaving dangerously in and out of traffic on a single carriageway in an urban area".

The perpetrator of the outrage is apprently one Adrenalinetwist, who declares: "Lets av sum fun!! Two Wheels Four Wheels Who gives a SH#T!!"

Well, road safety charity Brake gives a shit, and a spokesman told the Sun: "This guy is putting other road users in danger, going way in excess of the speed limit on that road. It's putting the message out that this is a fun thing to do, which is not the case. This is a deadly thing he's doing, completely reckless."

He added: "This guy was just extremely lucky he didn't kill himself and other road users. YouTube needs to get this clip off its site."

A Gloucestershire Police spokeswoman confirmed: "We are examining the footage and trying to identify the rider. The actions of this motorcyclist are extremely irresponsible." ®
