Sure its a skill. At that speed everything is a blur on a motorcycle and you literally react to the environment within milliseconds. The fact that it is such a skill proves what idiots those guys are to drive like that on a public Highway.

Anyone attempting to say what the people in this video are doing is not reckless or dangerous is an idiot. Your opinions would change in a heartbeat if someone you knew/cared about was injured or killed by someone driving like this. People make mistakes, one tiny mistake at those speeds could kill the driver and everyone else on the road around him. I`m not okay with someone else putting my life at risk for their stupid little adrenaline rush.

@The-Brit:
Your last sentence summed the whole thing up completely. If you are an experienced racing driver, you would be driving with other experienced racing drivers all at nearly the same speed, each knowing the other`s capabilities, but without the mobile chicanes known as `Other road users`, travelling 100 mph slower.
There are a lot of Audi drivers in the UK who are under the impression that ownership of a fast powerful car imbues you with the skill to drive said car. (Regardless of the other road users). Likewise, there are a lot of bikers who can ride fast enough to get into trouble, but do not have the skill to get out of trouble. Riding or driving fast doesn`t kill, (I ride an FJ1200), it`s the other road users who do not anticipate your speed, stick to the speed limit and drive according to the rules that kill.

If the bikers crashed, their dentist would be identifying them by their records. 

If the car crashed, their dentist and scores of other people`s dentist would be doing the identification. 

I own cars, a motorcycle and a performance jet ski and i find nothing amusing or impressive about this.

@The-Brit: Nothing close to dangerous? You said it yourself, he was on the road with unpredictable traffic and drivers. In a race the cars are aware of each other and wouldn`t pull out last minute in front of a car coming up behind at twice the speed...

Even the experienced can`t predict the behavior of strangers on the road.

Very much considered reckless driving. In Cali, it`s illegal for motorcycles to ride the line above speeds of 25. 15 miles over is considered reckless driving. Adding in lane changing like that . . . . If you`re caught that is at least a 500 dollar fine plus possible license suspension. Which makes it stupid no matter how cool and fun it is.

An important lesson I was taught - Don`t judge others by your own inabilities.

If you are an experienced racing driver, there was nothing close to dangerous there. Being within an a inch or so of another vehicle is something you can judge at high speed. The relative speeds are low enough to calculate and predict positioning with high accuracy. It becomes second nature.

Providing the `regular` drivers do nothing stupid, nothing dangerous will occur.

Im all for going fast and pushing the envelope when it comes to motorized vehicles but there is a time and place for this kind of stuff and it was not here.

On another more adrenaline filled note, that was awesome! When the subtitle came up about the adrenaline rush i was just thinking man that guy has got to be feeling it now lol. If there is one sensation in life that could top sex for pure pleasure it may damn well be the rush you get from doing stuff like this, adrenaline is by far the best buzz ive ever had myself.

As dangerous as that was to everyone on the road... it was also pretty damn awesome. It is one of those things you want to always do but know you shouldn`t.

@CodeJockey: We don`t have those types of ticket yet.

Also, that wasn`t half as great as the driver was talking... It actually was a bit obnoxious...

"Awesome race. Your toll slip says you were at point K 10 minutes ago. Pull over there to receive your ticket..."
