    124 km/h draft

    The caption says 124 km/h... Brass ones.

    Some cool stuff, nice bikes and his skills are awesome.
    Think he knew the driver and the road pretty good. Bunny hopping and lane changing are one thing but retrieving the camera off the truck at that speed one handed is nuts!

    I don't think a helmet would do much at those speeds.

    That's what the captions says. Are we sure they didn't mean around 80km/h, because I think that's what I see on his computer (I can see an "87.x", with x being "1" or "7", not sure)? If this video was shot in a Spanish-speaking country, then I would expect the speed on his computer to be in km/h, not in mph.

    Anyhow, I think the guy's plain nuts, sorry. There are so many things that can go wrong, which no bike handling skills would then help you recover from. Plus, if something goes wrong, the chances of fatal injury are quite high. There's a fine line between bravery and skill, versus plain idiocy. This guy is on the wrong side of that line, in my opinion. But hey, it's his life and limbs.

    124 seems nearly impossible... They pedal at points? Granted, maybe they hit that for a sec? And that's completely freaking nuts, no question, the stupid side of balls.

    Gearing looked normal

    Looking at the bikes, they seemed to have pretty normal rings. So they're really not going to be able to pedal much faster than about 80 kph even if they can do 130 RPM.

    Sort of normal dump truck speed.

    I was going to say there's no way he can sit with balls that big. However, if he was kicked for doping, I can see them shrinking back to normal size from that.
    It's a fire road.............
    I'm on a road bike..........

    They have enough in common to blast down it.

    I'm thinking the only viable option in that situation if something goes wrong is hoping he can get a grab on that truck and hang on for dear life.

    I mean, one stick, one rock, one piece of someone's exploded tire and you can get properly messed up.

    Dumb.
