This is why I stick to cars

I like speed too much and that’s the reason why I stick with cars and will never own a motor cycle. Every time I watch videos like this I want to jump in the car and burn the tires off.

Smart to know your limitations.
I have owned the fastest bikes on the planet but seem to like the "ability" to go fast more than going fast itself...

Glad you're still with us and in one piece, maybe one day you'll burn out the bug...a fast bike is a thing of beauty all it's own.

Some can't handle the fast bikes, I wouldn't call them crazy though it's more dumbasses that I see getting knots on their head all the time, and the funerals I've been to have sometimes been the rider's own damn fault they wrecked and got killed.

Maybe now you you know what 'live to ride, ride to live' really means. It's not just some Harley slogan.

Not much can replace the feeling of a fast bike.

Going 180 on two wheels is a one of a kind experience! You can't see anything lol and God forbid you hit a bug it feels like you hit a damb pterodactyl!!!

It just sucks that responsible riders on sport bikes get a bad name because of all the idiots closing down highways so they can do wheelies down the damn road for miles or the jackasses doing 100 through the neighborhoods.

I have been riding motorcycles for 46 years now, with mini-bikes before that. I love the rush that a powerful bike gives me. There is truly nothing like a bad ass sport bike to give you a adrenalin high like nothing else. But I have lost friends that failed to "know their limitations" as Clint Eastwood says. Fast cars like the ZL1 are also amazing, but for a truly amazing rush, nothing beats a sportbike. That said, those guys are about as crazy as it gets, awesome video!
