New rider looking to get killed :(

Here's a nice little thread from a local forum. This guy, Fixer 166 just got his license and now wants to hit 200kmph as soon as he can. I wonder how long he will live?

yup, that guy really is a retard, the other guy's just pretty normal though.
As long as he gets "fast" out of his system on the safer roads he shold be okay.

As long as either of them don't hurt anyone else in their escapades in velocity, I don't really care. If you aspire to be a red stain on the tarmac, more power to you.

That's 120mph but in real money it's still 200km/h

I love how that Shervin guy posts comments on the pictures as if someone else would want to know how to copy his "mods". He's a bonafide retard.

I... but... My head hurts.

I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

Don't tell some of the "experts" on the Thunderbird forum chopping your airbox is a dumb idea.
