Holy fuck....even in my bad younger days never did anything like that and I sure travelled that highway a lot. Video is open to comments on YouTube, watch out Joe Blow I am coming.

Ooops looks like Saanich PD also is...

Saanich police say they are investigating the incident.

I think he's actually on the Island Highway somewhere around Nanaimo. The Pat Bay doesn't have the wide grass boulevard between north and south lanes.

These type of vids are all over the interweb. Don't see what the big deal is. Young guy, fast bike, no fear. We have all been there and done that once in our lives. Hell, I was doing it myself last weekend to a lesser degree

You are right...changed it after I watched it again. Sure I have been there.....years ago but the way them morons drive on SVI, no way I'd even think of riding between the lanes, but my bike only goes 250. I just don't like incitation, had some bad consequences them videos in our neighborhood and pissing off the usually tolerant locals big time.

That one seems to have a link to BCsportbiker.com, anyone here signed on there just to see if he is getting high fives???

Of course now he's notorious and all over the TV and internet, he's probably high-fiving all his idiot buddies.

I did that on Saturday on my xt225...

This was back in the day before 40 over had your car impounded. Who knew a 75 Toyota corolla could do 178km/h?

...because I fought the ticket and lost. (Apparently 17 year olds make terrible defense attorneys.) The cop even wrote it and circled it on the ticket. I'm not proud of the fact, I haven't had a ticket in years, but always like to know how fast any car I own will go. This was at the far south end of the Parksville bypass before the curve to the bridge where admittingly there is a 1% decline. 108mph isn't that ridiculous for a 1600cc early 70's car. Anything past that forget it.
Anyway, not trying to turn this into a he said, she said.

Yeah, i've picked my moments, and places. Even in my extreme youth with fire in my eyes and loins, I never picked a local metro highway full of cars & trucks. It's usually 300-400 miles southeast in the high desert of central Oregon where this kind of top speed runs can be done with minimal audience. I feel the kid that made this video is an attention whore in the same way a ceruiser rider loves to blip the throttle downtown in front of a window pane and a crowd of people in a cafe.

In BC, this new 40km/hr impoundment law has been kind of like our own "9/11" attack on those who need to run the machines where they like. A modern sportbike today makes these speeds so easy and casual, in fact, a modern sportbike is actually not much fun below 140km/hr, kind of boring actually, no viseral feedback. Heck, I was out on my 22yr old 750 Honda on the weekend and without even thinking I was in the 'danger zone' , so casual. This one legislative decision alone has confirmed with me that during next spring's provincial election, I will NOT be voting for the current political party in power now. How dare they consider me the same level of criminal as a murderer or drug dealer simply by exceeding their vastly underposted speed limits. Fucking joke, revenue generation of the most underhanded nature!!!!
This move has been a very good one for motorcycle friendly hotels in Washington, Oregon, and California states, who now find themselves much busier with BC riders enjoying their MUCH better roads.
