YAMAHA R1 RACES PORSCHE GTS3 ON SNOW/ICE (258KM/H) (160MPH!!)
EXTREME, 258 KM/H ON ICE, THE FINAL FIGHT AND CRASH: Lap times, heavy
crashes, extreme riding on ice, awesome images, here is the final result of
our match between a Porsche GT3RS (450 HP) and a Yamaha 1000 R1 (180 HP) on
the replica (scale one) of the legendary 5.8 km Paul Ricard Track in
Lapland by minus 25 degrees To win, the Porsche had 4 wheels, 450 horsepower and 2320 spikes.
The R1 was counting on its lightness, its sharpest, 470 spikes and the
"balls" of Serge Nuques to lean it to the maximum angle. The other equally
tight match was between a Mitsubishi Evo 9 against a Yamaha 450 WRF
I DO NOT OWN ANY OF THIS. COPIED IT OVER SO WE CAN SEE ON THE US YOUTUBE.
Foot Peg Catches then Crash - 2009 Yamaha R1
Rider on a Crossplane R1 catches foot peg causing rider to exit the
roadway. Rider was uninjured.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a popular hangout for
motorcycles & fast cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular
visitors every weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore
and at a view point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts.
Crashes are common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The
Snake is a two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders
usually will make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner
when assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are
not going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi
Yamaha R1 300 kmh and some wheelies
Just playing around on my bike to test a new onboard cam.
The 2004 R1 has got great power and the frontwheel just won't stay down.
Even in 3th gear.
Now I just have to find a way to kill the noise of wind........
2004 Yamaha R1 Top speed
Me on my brothers 2004 Yamaha R1 on the german autobahn.
The sound quality isn't the best, this is because I forgot to mount the
little rubber that stops the vibration. Great bike with great power!
Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1
Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1. LED strip was installed and wired to
operate as a turn signal as well as the running lights. I got the led
strips from eBay; they are just 24 LED flexible strips. (Do a search there
are hundreds) Next you will need 2 5 pin Bosch style relays. (Dont get the
4 pins they don't have an output for normally closed (87a) which is what
you need for them to be running lights.) Next dismantle your bike down to
just the headlights. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the
head light on a cooking sheet and then in the oven for 7 minutes. Remove
headlight and pry the housing apart, its pretty easy with the help of a
flathead screwdriver. Next glue in your LED strips; I used high temp
silicone RTV on mine you can experiment if you like. Once installed lightly
press the housing back together and put it back in the oven for 7 minutes
when its done you can press it firmly together and the clips will re-snap
down. Now just reassemble your bike and wire them up! you can wire it like
I did as alternating with the flasher or if you dont want it to flash you
can ditch the relays and wire it to any keyed 12 volt source on your bike.
I happen to have used the stock 12v running light power for the stock
signals (a blue wire as I recall.) Do this at your own risk I accept no
responsibility if you confuse Fahrenheit for Celsius and melt your damn
headlights :) Have fun kids!
