In the pantheon of bad ideas and even worse ideas, capturing yourself on video gratuitously breaking the law and later flaunting your indiscretions to the local constabulary ranks right between sticking your face into a diesel truck's tailpipe and standing atop a motorcycle shooting off a gun on city streets.

In other words, it's dumb.

Funny thing is, people seem to make this egregious mistake rather often. Exhibit A: This motorcyclist in Moscow. Exhibit B: The video you'll see below.

First off, it's seriously stupid and irresponsible to risk your own life and the lives of others by riding at speeds of up to 185 miles per hour while weaving your way through traffic. But it takes even fewer brain cells to share video evidence on YouTube, especially considering that we can all see that you're riding what appears to be a 2006 Yamaha R1 painted up in factory blue.

According to CBC News, Vancouver Island police are trying to track down the rider in this clip. Scroll down below to see the video for yourself.

      A friend of a friend went to his buddies funeral about 5 or 6 years ago now because his friend thought doing 150mph on public roads on his bike was a great idea, instead he ran into a pickup truck at around 130 or so, his bike actually went through the truck, and he was collected with a mop. I'm completely serious, there was nothing left of the guy. Oh almost forgot - the driver of the truck was killed as well; a man with a wife and kids at home. This isn't cool, it isn't funny, and it isn't brave. It's dumb and dangerous end of story.

      I soooooo totally hope he gets caught. How are we expected to text / eat burgers / zone out while driving in the left lane, as long as such dangerous heathens exist? Terrible, and completely unaccep... oops, dropped a fry. Hold on.

      This is in Victoria, not Vancouver. Vancouver Island is the name of the Island Victoria is located on.

      Completely stupid and insane. **This coming from a former sportbike rider. I really enjoyed my days riding. I'd like to think that I'm not old and out of touch, but I can't remember a time when we drove THIS agressively in traffic. This is just ultra dangerous/stupid. We had our moments where we topped the bikes out on local roads but mostly when they were darn near empty. I can't believe out of all those cars that not a single car changed lanes at the wrong time to get out /in his way by mistake. This guy is not only stupid - but ULTRA friggin lucky! Maybe getting caught by the cops would settle him down and spare his life to do something more productive. Hopefully he learns from his mistake before it's too late. I know I've made my mistakes in life, who hasn't but to say this guy should hurry up and die is just stupid to say. I hope he learns before he or someone else gets hurt.

      Hey Mister Freespirit, don't let The Man discourage you from showing the world what a brave warrior you are. Keep on riding, and keep riding fast in traffic, otherwise your friends won't respect you and chicks won't date you. Next time do it one handed, or maybe stand up, it's the only way forward from here.

      Commute on that section of road every day for 20 years. Given the stupidity I see there every day, he is lucky to be alive

      I'm sure someone will be scraping him off the pavement in the near future with a shovel. What a stupid tool.

      if someone changed lanes without signaling he'd be dead

      If he had hit the back of one of those slower vehicles, his donated organs would of been rendered useless ground beef.

      What continues to confound me about people like this is why they do these idiotic things on populated streets. I mean, despite a complete lack of common sense, this person has to be a skilled rider to maintain control while essentially threading a needle at that rate of speed. So why do it on a street? If you have that kind of skill, why not develop it on a racetrack to actually earn yourself some cash and respect instead of stupidly risking the well-being of innocent bystanders?
