Recently, I’ve been reading up on a few super sport bikes, and the GSX-R comes to the forefront, with the Honda CBR-1000 and the Yamaha YZF R1. The Suzuki has got some interesting looks and an excellent stock exhaust system. On top of that, it has 185 bhp, if you could believe that!
Suzuki introduced different driving modes, like some of the high performance sports cars. There are 3 settings, A, B and C. They all have different power outputs and ranges, bu the A mode is the super sport mode. Due to a gentleman’s agreement in between Japanese motorcycle companies, top speed is artificially limited to 290 kmh.
By looking through this on Google, I came upon the Ghost Rider again.
I heard of him years back, but I never really bothered with watching his videos. I did see some excerpts. In the last few days, I watched the trailers on YouTube and got a few vids.
The Ghost Rider is a stunt motorcycle driver from Sweden. He rides different bikes, all customized, including a 285bhp GSX-R with carbon fiber fairing. It’s been revealed that his real name is Patrik Furstenhoff and that he is currently in his 40s.
“Ghost Rider” is the alias used by a Swedish motorcycle stunt rider in a series of independently produced DVD movies where the recurring theme involves Ghost Rider himself performing illegal maneuvers on his motorcycle on public roads across Sweden and other countries in Europe. The movies feature Ghost Rider, mostly in the perspective of cameras mounted on his motorbike, racing at extreme speeds on busy roadways, provoking law enforcement officers into high-speed chases, and performing various dangerous stunts in mostly uncontrolled environments. The extreme footage has brought some notoriety to Ghost Rider as the movies’ wild antics have been discussed on various magazines and television programs around the world.
Basically, he drives around like a madman in daylight and traffic, gets chased by the cops and escapes. He drives around at insane speeds.
