Take a close look at the image above. Yes, it's a motorcyclist, riding an orange motorcycle. Take a gander at the speedometer, and you'll see he's doing about 250 kilometers per hour, which equals about 155 miles per hour.

But wait – what's that yellow thing surrounding the digital speedometer? It looks like... yep, that's a snake all right. The how and why of it got there we don't know. Probably trying to warm itself on the bike's engine, we guess.

In any case, we suggest you watch the video to see how a calm, level-headed man might react to such a situation. Well, calm for sure. We're not so sure anyone who'd willingly ride a motorcycle at insane speed on public roads, passing fellow bikers in the face of oncoming traffic could be called level headed.

See it go down in all its scaly glory in the video below.

      We all know the snake was thinking "holy crap, I don't want to die!" Snake was smarter than the rider.

      Snake? Snake? SNAKE?!

      Reading the title I thought a Hennessey Viper would pull up alongside.

        Hahaa that's funny i was thinking the same thing, only that it would be a Shelby GT500.

      Bottom left corner, that snake wraps itself around right by the handlebar! Way to stay calm! Flipside... Douche with a deathwish. Stay on the right side of the road or pay for some track time. And by the way, you're not pilots.

      I am a sport bike rider, looking at the way this crotchrocket rider was behaving is the reason why riders like him are called "organ doners".
        • 3 Years Ago
        You stick to the throttle and I'll stick to spelling (and the throttle), it is organ donor. I know the C116 and other fuels have rotted your cells but doner isn't spelled like boner, you boner.

        Well with that kind a speed and they crash there will be no organ's left to use .

      Hilarious how many people just instantly decide that this guy doesn't have the skill to ride like he was riding. Can't stand when some HD riding slo-mo decides he's gonna dictate the speed of everyone else just because he's a scared little bitch. If you're freaked out by speed, don't drive. Stay home and eat your Activia. Leave the driving to those os us that can handle it.

      That damn snake on the mother****ing bike is lucky Samuel L Jackson wasn't riding!

      I have been riding sportbikes for 18 years and have over 200,000 miles worth of experience, on street and track.....this guy clearly has some degree of skill, at least with the clutch and throttle. His closure rate on other vehicles is obviously a "bit" high to be considered safe, but to be honest the average douchebag merrily texting away in his SUV while stuffing his pie hole with McDonald's scares me a lot more than a speeding motorcyclist who is paying full attention to what he's doing.

      You got that right. A crash at that speed leaves nothing but hamburger meat.

      Headline should read Squid vs Snake.

      Well, if a snake invades my space..whereever I may be...he's probably gonna get worse than stomped on, get his dang head cut off if I can find someone to do it for me. I don't like snakes. A snake is a snake, I don't care what color or breed it is, it's still a snake. Let's see how many people get mad at me over my comments. Half a dozen at least I bet.
