From my years living in Germany...
1km = .6mi so:

100 KPH = 60 MPH
200 KPH = 120 MPH
300 KPH = 180 MPH

Somewhere on the net is a video of a dude hitting 320+ (190+) in a Toyota or something.

Yeah.. That Bursa will never need a front tire replacement since it only touches the ground when parked...

At 150+ mph the road stripes almost appear to be a solid white lines. Those are pretty distinct. I believe he may be doing 120 but not 180 mph.

OK OK... But I'm not smart enough to do that one while driving. The difference is a couple of mph per 100kph I think.

that depends on the width between the lines, no? I think that effect is less likely to happen on a bike, you see the line right up to your foot unlike a car. (I've done 170 on a bike and didn't go solid - come to think of it did same in a car years ago and didn't go solid either..)

If traffic is moving at 80 or so, he might be on the mark. The tach is up there too. Still fast and insane!

You are beyond stupid to hit a berm at that rate of speed. I am not buying it.

And I said they "almost appear to be a solid white line", not "are a solid line". Next time you are at that speed check out the guard rails. They look like a picket fence.
