Which one of you was doing 60 mph on the highway...video

check out this video. I can't help but laugh because this looks like something that I would do. And he has no helmet and he's doing like 55 - 60 mph.

He should just buy a motorcycle, but then again, he would be going 100 on it all the time.

What kind of bike was that?? You better believe I'd have a helmet on, moving like that.

Ah...Ok. I did a little research and see these are still in the DIY phase pretty much. I read the Daily Telegraph online and they have one on their front page. It's mass produced, but the mountain bike ones look way cooler.

Heck, if I was keeping up with traffic, I'd be taking the lane instead of the shoulder. Where was that filmed?

And a set of leathers also.

This type of thing is sure not good for the politics of ebikes using bike lanes....

Based on the clothing, vegetation, and driving on the left side of the road, I'd say Thailand.
I'm also going to call that an internal combustion engine moto.

That's insane! I crashed at just 5mph because my tire exploded.
