Good old GoPro – it lets us feel like we’ve had the most extreme experiences when we’ve never even left the couch. The latest teeth-clenching selection is this shot of two motorcyclists passing a car at well over 80mph – only to have another biker zip past them at 200mph.
The biker is going so fast that when the guy filming glances behind him a moment earlier, the speeding bike isn’t visible – and the next second he’s disappeared ahead of them.
For comparison, terminal velocity for a person falling out of an airplane is about 120mph. So yeah, any collision at that speed would be pulverizing and I hope this guy is a very competent driver.
