Damn, dude. If someone t-boned me while stunting through a red light I think I'd make sure to kick your head around a little bit to paralyze their stupid ass.

"Wow! I'm such a bad ass. I just over wheelied my bike wearing a t shirt and shorts. I better stand up and throw my hands in the air!"

This is why we make fun of squids. Im surprised though, alot of them were wearing leathers, or atleast a helmet.

Here's the same idea, except in Japan.

I'd say of the two, the guy on the R1 is more nuts, just because of his faster speed, but not by much!

Remember, as you watch the Japanese video, the speedo is in km/h not mph.

The interesting thing about that Japanese video is that it was done in the early 1990s, back then it would have been a big deal to have a helmet cam set-up. Also amazingly good quality for something that old.

And in case that's not enough, there's more of the same here:
