Click above to see "Canberra Joyride" parts one and two

Remember the guy who took his Lamborghini up to 219 mph on an Arizona highway? A Canberra, Australia man has done the same thing with his Kawasaki ZX-750, filming himself blasting up to 200 km/h (124 mph), sometimes in 60 km/h (37 mph) zone, and called it "Canberra Joyride," part of which is set to, of all things, P.O.D. Then he uploaded the video to YouTube and probably waited for the viewers to gush all over themselves.

It turns out that some of the viewers were the Canberra police. And they didn't gush; they performed their own top-speed hunt-and-capture mission and charged the man with doing 200 in a 60. We've all broken a law or two, but guys, a word of advice: filming high-speed runs is like filming your conjugal activities... not to be done. If you must, keep it on lockdown like D-Block at Folsom. Otherwise... well, you should know by now what happens. Follow the jump to check out the action for yourself. At the end of one video a caption reads "More videos coming soon." Those will probably be from the yard...

      I have videos like that on youtube, of my Subaru, but in the comments section I claim that it is not me driving it, nor do I know what road it is on.

      You cannot bust someone unless you know WHO was driving, WHERE they were driving, and WHEN they were driving. Good luck, pigs.

        @Tom Winch: too bad Flashpoint wasn't there :))

        Yeah, that's what I thought.

      Obviously autoblog must be east coasters.

      Have you even been on the I15 to vegas? 90mph is normal in the 70zone. I've seen folks definitely in the triple digits-SUVs nonetheless...of course, that's when there's no traffic!

      Luckily youtubing speeding/racing in *mexico* appears to be legal.

      It seems some people are upset that the police nailed a guy for speeding on a bike, just because they traced him on YouTube. Big deal. If the idea of cops surfing the internet to catch sshow-off speeders is wrong, then maybe they shoud stop posing as underaged kids in chatrooms to catch sex offenders.

      I feel everyone has a right to buy whatever they want, but if a person wants to take it to the max, then rent a racetrack for a few hours or participate in a cntrolled atmosphere, like a race.

      And for those who feel that cops patrolling the web for lawbreakers is a waste of taxpayers' money, then I say the use of law officers and emergency personnel picking up out-of-control speed freaks who killed themselves on the road just to get a few "thrills" is a waste of my taxes, too. Leave them on the road for what I care.

      Can't get busted from a video.

      What a pussy. Only 124mph? That bike should do much more.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Very real:

      See item 3/

      Most of the cars that he passes are doing 80 to no more than 100km/h

      Erm...you guys should see Ghostrider. Now that guy has balls, going full throttle on a congested freeway.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Did the police catch him in the act, or use the video?
      While i think the video's are dumb and boring, i also think there is really no proof there of who's riding the bike.

      These top speed video's have been done to death.
