300 km/h Biker Extremely Close Call

Sport bikes are definitely fun, and riding faster than a medium jet flies when landing is even more thrilling, no questions asked.
However, doing 300 km/h (186 mph) on a public road literally means forfeiting your life, and not because you might crash due to a pilot error, but because you're simply coming in too fast for any "give way" sign, any shoulder check and all.

Even more, doing 300 km/h on a public road looks more like a pilot error by itself. However, keeping focused and looking ahead for all the potential hazards you might run into may save your health and possibly, your life.

And you don't really need this speed to kick the bucket... watching this video proves this thing: the guy was already down at 180km/h (just about 110 mph) when he realized the tractor is a very big danger for him.
