You might notice that most of the footage is Russian.

I have Russian family that travel back frequently, and says that the video cameras pointing out the front, sides and back are basically the only way to get any kind of legal justice after an accident because the system is so corrupt, and the judge decided (in the absence of video evidence) for the highest bidder.

That, and Russians are shitty, selfish drivers.

I couldn't take much more than the first 10 minutes.
And this is why I spend the vast majority of my riding time off pavement away from other people.

That has to be some of the dumbest of the dumbshit riders I have ever seen condensed into one video.

Agreed, natural selection at its most basic, anybody not believing in darwinism should just watch that, a few funnys as well though.

All those bad Russian drivers are why we have so much good video of that meteor impact a while back.

Looks like the Isle of Man TT - great clip! Guys are pretty much nuts though. 3-10 people usually die each year - in 2012 I think it was 4 people that died and another bunch was severly injuried.

Don't get me wrong - if they want to do it it's their choice. You just have to realize that they are nuts... basejumping or bullfighting is probably safer!

Nah, more like one or two die at the Isle of Man TT, and mostly on Mad Sundays when they let anybody out on the track. Most of this footage is from Ireland. Note the group starts, these are not Timed Trials... Still, when they are riding in the rain, you know that all the guys more than three rows back in the group in that photo can't see anything... at 180mph!
