Randy George ScottWe're sure you remember our less-than-intelligent friend on the '06 Yamaha R1. You know, the one who filmed himself doing at least 186 mph through busy traffic in Vancouver, Canada? As it turns out, it didn't take long for police do identify the idiotic rider. Public tips quickly pointed law enforcement toward 25-year-old Randy George Scott, who quickly found himself with a warrant out for his arrest.

Scott turned himself in to police at Kelowna, around six hours from the town where the incident reportedly took place, and he's been arrested on charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. The crime can carry a penalty of up to five years in jail, according to CNN.

The video shows a rider dangerously weaving through traffic as the speedometer pegs out at 299 kph, or 186 mph, outside the town of Saanich. Police say the rider may have been traveling significantly faster than that, however, as the motorcycle can be heard accelerating even after the speedometer tops out. You can check out the video below to see the stupidity again.

Remember, kids, there's a time and a place for everything. Riding a bike fast is an awesome experience, but keep it on track where it belongs.

      Why does the new trend seem to be doing something stupid and then uploading a video of yourself doing it? EG. the middle school kids who bullied their bus monitor.

        As stupid as it sounds for doing something that'll get you in trouble and then recording and boasting about it, I'm not complaining. All the more evidence to help them get the consequences they deserve.

        Insecure people who are starved for attention will do ANYTHING to get that attention, even if it's negative attention.

        I blame "reality" TV...now everyone with a video camera considers themselves the next Big Star and common sense has disappeared.

        Hes a better driver than you. You sit in the fast lane while doing 10 under the limit talking on your phone, eating and doing god know what else. I tell you one thing, that boy was doing nothing but driving.

          A "GOOD" driver doesn't put others at RISK just for his own SELFISH thrills. A "GOOD" driver who wants to go FAST knows where the roads are CLEAR of traffic and/or takes his bike to the TRACK to demonstrate his SKILLS.

      ok i see huffpost headlines this with "why he turned himself in"...however, this article never mentions "why" other than he had a warrant for his arrest.

        That warrant being issued IS the "why", so the article actually does address it...

      He is certainly a knucklehead, and I only say that because his head looks like a knuckle.

      Awesom video, kids got one foot in the grave thats for sure, when riding ive found the 2 x 4 in the road here and there, then someone might change lanes after all he's only in the rear view for a second. Do that 2-3 times and he'll be a grease spot on the highway.

      To morons who like high speed remember this....it isn't how fast you can go but how fast you can STOP! 120 mph = 2 miles per minute, 1 mile 30 seconds, 1/2 mile in 15 seconds. What happens if someone switches lanes less than 1/4 mile up the road! BUG SPLAT! I've been hit by a car when on a bike. Those things feel like 3000 pound steel bulls that want to kick your a**! Hope you've got great insurance, but at least read it and find out if they pay off if you're driving in a suicidal manner. At least get insurance that will leave your kids with something when you turn into a 1/2 mile skid mark.

      He should have just stuck to the video game... That is way to dangerous.......and stupid.
      • 2 Years Ago
      "idiotic rider" , "less than intelligent friend" ... Why cause he was speeding? Give it up Zach,you are easily the dumbest author on this site and you've proven it many times.This just reminds me of your last comparison between canadians and americans where both of the videos you posted involved only americans...
