Driving & Drivers, Paris: 54 reviews and 50 photos
Amongst biking circles the feats of the now deceased (unsurprisingly) 'Black Prince' have passed into urban folklaw. He achieved infamy mainly through his illegal racing on the Paris peripherique, the city's 35 km ring-road. Averaging 190+ kph on his Kawasaki ZXR750 with a camera strapped to the tank. You would think he would do this at first light, but no, this 11-minute (and that is the full circuit) video was taken during the height of the morning rush-hour. I have yet to see it, but I'm told it makes experienced bikers whince with the pain of what could have been.
Watch out for any nutters trying to better his record.
