We're losing track of how many top gunners post high-speed-run videos on public roads on YouTube and then get busted. Police take that tomfoolery personally, and you'd think they put the entire department on the case judging by how quickly the perps get caught.

Latest on the list is a Canadian motorcyclist who took his Yamaha on the Trans-Canada Highway and ran it to about 300 kph. CBC News now reports that the unidentified rider in question is 25 years old, unlicensed, riding an uninsured Yamaha R1 registered in his mother's name. Then there's the small matter of his 25 previous infractions.

Police wasted no time tracking down YouTube poster "Joe Blow," but he's been uncooperative up to now. We have no idea why he wasn't in jail already after 25 violations, but we're guessing his Internet handle will soon be changed to "Three Hots and a Cot." Scroll down to refresh your memory with a video demonstration of his stupidity.

      For the love of all that's good.................if you are going to do something stupid like upload videos of illegal behavior at least have enough brains to do it from an ISP other than your own home!!!

      Autoblog. This happened in Victoria!!!! The video says so. If this was in Vancouver he 100% would have passed highway patrol along that distance.

          It's absolutely careless to get simple facts like this wrong!

        Sorry, Greg. From down here in the States, Canada is just kind of. . . Canada. I'm not saying that to be a jerk-- it is just easy to make a mistake when you are unfamiliar with so much of the country. In our defense, would you know, just by looking at the video, whether something was filmed in Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, or Colorado? If so, kudos. I am sure that AB meant no disrespect (and neither do I).

      The motorcycle is registered to his mom. How do they know it wasn't his mom riding the bike?

      I'm a fan of the R1, and as much of a speed freak as many of the people on this site, but I can't even begin to condone this kind of behavior. About five years ago we had a jackass on a bike come down the hill three blocks from my office doing well over 100 mph. He ran a red light and t-boned a Yukon so hard that he catapulted himself into the side of the bank 4 lanes and a parking lot away (he did not survive). His bike smashed the Yukon so hard that it killed a 10-year-old girl in the back seat and broke both legs of the child seated in the very middle of the car. This idiot is in the same classification as that guy. Only by blind luck and the grace of God did he make it through this ride (and evidently many others) without killing someone. This goes beyond stupidity, beyond bravado, and way beyond anything even remotely "cool." This is criminally reckless behavior. He turned his bike into a 400-pound missile going over 300 feet per second, and is damn lucky no one downrange stepped into the line of fire. This is every bit as dangerous as walking out on that same road and randomly discharging a firearm, and should be treated exactly the same way by the criminal justice system.

        I also am a big R1 fan, and own a Road Warrior. Like you I could never condone this kind of riding. On the previous article about this guy I posted a similar story about an idiot on a bike killing himself and a man with a family by t-boning a pickup at about 130mph. I'm glad to see your comment, it's important for people to really realize what is happening here and the consequences that are sure to follow.

        I completely agree with you. This young jack@ss deserves to receive the maximum penalty of law. Dangerous driving and criminal negligence.

        I am all for soaring when it doesn't endanger the lives of innocent people just trying to get home, to work, or back to see their kids. This isn't soaring. This is recklessly risking EVERYONE ELSE'S life just so that you can feel cool on YouTube. If the same rider, on the same bike, going the same speeds on a closed road or a track posted this video, I would be a huge fan. But on a public road, with SO MANY lives put at risk, I think he is a criminal. A thug. He is to be despised for this behavior just as if he had pulled a knife or a gun on someone.

        Sell that de-motivational crap somewhere else where real lives aren't being placed in danger from that future stain on the road.

        LOL, is this sarcasm or thrill-seeker fodder? Endangering others isn't what I would call "soaring" in a life of social responsibility. You can only act within the rules of the society that you are leeching your food, housing and social services from. Only self-sustaining cavemen living outside sovereign territory can have total freedom.

          Sorry, no. If you built an underwater cave beneath Antarctica, The U.S., Russia and China would all race each other to your cave, and argue over who gets to charge you the "underwater ice cave tax".

      Great skill. I didn't see a reckless motorcyclist in this video, I saw many stupid and reckless car/truck drivers on the road who're hogging the fast lane while moving dangerously slowly.

        His speed only made them look slow. Those in the fast lane could easily have been passing those in the slow lane. The motorcycle's speed, however, relative to the cars, makes them seem slow. Given the difference in speed between the car in the left lane and the car in the right lane is much less than the difference between the motorcycle and the cars, it appears as though the passing car is hogging the lane.

      I have no problem at all with him killing himself, but the fact that he risks the life of so many others makes me just mad. This goes for all of the idiots doing things like this.

      Of course he is endanger others and himself, but ... he is good.

      Who cares if what he did was stupid? Not a lot of people have the guts to do what he just did or might not have the guts at all. I am not saying he did the right thing, but I am sure if any of you people had the balls and skills to this stupidity I am sure you all will do it. Stop hating and enjoy the video.

        This isn't about skill. He definitely has skill and machismo. He lacks judgment and displays a depraved indifference for the lives of those around him. The fact that he didn't kill anyone --yet-- makes his actions no less deplorable.

        Individuals with the lowest mental age level (less than three years) were identified as idiots; imbeciles had a mental age of three to seven years, and morons had a mental age of seven to ten years.The term "idiot" was used to refer to people having an IQ below 30. Mr. Zombie gave you to much credit. I believe you are somewhere between an imbecile and a moron!
