The Black Prince “Paris Peripherique”

“The Black Prince” tries for a record run around the Peripherique of Paris. Shot in 1989, this 35km jaunt around the ring of the city is completed in just over 11 minutes at an average speeds on 192kph, but was eventually beaten a few years later. However the new record was set at night with little traffic on the road. This drive on a Kawasaki ZXR750, is somewhat jaw-dropping and is – obviously – massively dangerous. It is stupid, reckless and mindless in the most obscene way imaginable.
Unfortunately the first half of this jaunt isn’t online yet and it isn’t in English, but you don’t need to understand it – you just need to watch it.
