Jbenet, David, and Fraucha,
I'm going to *kind of* contradict all three of you on the going too fast thing. I'm feeling frisky.
Okay, I agree with you somewhat, but only because it's Ukraine. ANY speed on a bike in Ukraine is "too fast." I really mean that. Too damn dangerous at any speed for motorbikes. Period.
But when I watched the video, if I remember correctly, his bike SOUNDED like it was going too fast, but it didn't LOOK like it was burning up the pavement. If it was the U.S., that speed looked about right. Then the question is, what speed would have been "normal" -- honestly don't know. I think the second time I saw that video, I just felt his bike was noisy, but not too fast. You can be a danger also by going too slow (probably in a freaky risky way in Ukraine - imagine cars creeping up on you in the style they use here).
Maybe I should watch it again, but I'm in a
pubic public place.
