    Check out this biker hitting 171 MPH

    Heres one hitting 174MPH (Speedometer is KPH - 280)

    Notice the cop car he passes @ 30secs and the siren @ the end of the clip :D


    Heres one hitting 220MPH


    This guy is doing close to 300 KPH!! Pretty crazy!!



    And finally,this guy is going a little bit over 140 MPH in his car!

    As for the second one, I am presuming that it is a clip from Britain, due to the right side drive, and the landscape. Australia is a possibility. But having been to Aus numerous times, it appears to be Europe to me. Either way, he goes upwards of 140 kph, which is well less than 90mph. A speed most of us have driven.

    Are you sure? I know the vast majority of right hand drive vehicles, the spedometer is calibrated in KPH not MPH. I tried to freeze frame the video to see what the main source of measure was and I couldnt. I also saw the speed to the outside terrain and it simply didnt appear to be going that fast, but the quality of the video is low.

    I still think the measurement is KPH.

    Nope the meter in the 2nd clip is KPH which reads 280 when he goes the fastest (280Kph is 174Mph)
