Big surprise at 175

First of all I dont think us vulcan riders have to worry about going 175 MPH. But what if this happened to one of us? Good job on this rider keeping his cool.

Garage
That was cool ( lucky to see it before they yanked it)

But not as scary as the time I got to see a BIG freaking spider crawling around on the INSIDE of my helmet visor at max speed through a long left hand sweeper.

OMG! You just described my worst nightmare KM...except it would be a right hand sweeper.

And as far as the original video...I saw something yellow when I first watched it but I had no idea what it was until they slowed it down. LOL Good job for the guy not freaking out. But what a dumbass for driving that fast on a public road.
