That's fking ridiculous speeds for a public road, gotta be 150ish. He absolutely left that bike and pinned it for about 4 seconds.
That video is absolutely shocking. Pretty much all LLF content seems to be on idiots who are a ticking time bomb waiting to kill someone.

That may all be true, but you can’t prove any of it from those videos sadly.

And what are the police going to do? Tail him every day, waiting for him to film a video so he can be caught? He’s just one muppet in a sea of muppets.

Sad state of affairs. We can but hope that he gets caught out before he spits himself off the road at 150mph and kills some/many/all people.
if you know the revs and gearing at one speed, and thus the tonal pitch of the engine, its not hard to calculate another speed. FFT/frequency counter is your friend.

Officially Gassed is another moron who drives like this and the owners of the cars. Someone is going to come a cropper in the not too distant future.

8k rpm from 5th to 6th . As suggested it was over 170mph

But he REALLY needs to slow down, especially in other peoples cars.

It's only an SV650. Pretty tame as far as bikes go.

Quite. It's like racing an R1 versus a Fiesta ST.

Loving the GFWilliams content, really well made and the Exige is clearly a labour of love.
Thank you smile

I've been quite surprised how well my channel is doing, I've got over 100k views on both my Lotus walk around video and the Ferrari Monza video. Next video now won't be for a while, but it's even more unique access to a car than the Ferrari was, so I'm hopeful people will enjoy it.

What’s your opinion on The Stradman? I bet his neighbors hate him and I wouldn’t blame them. I couldn’t live next to him or is all the hyper active ness just a sharade?

He's definitely calmer in person. Not by much, but a little.

How does anyone get away with anything these days - in this case its yootoobeland where all bets are off.......if his driving continues to fail to reach a suitable standard, the judge and jury of PH will cast judgement I'm sure.

i'm not one for ripping people but i cant help but look at this guys page since it was suggested on the previous pages..

The comments are brutal / comedy gold lol. And to be fair he cant be that bothered by it. he doesnt seem to address any of the hate and he gets a decent amount of views on each vid!

Another Olly Higuys for anyone that missed it:

https://sniffpetrol.com/2019/12/13/under-the-influ...

Obviously I'm a fan of stuff like Carfection, Harry's Garage, Petrolicious and The Smoking Tyre, but if we are talking guilty pleasures amongst the UK vloggers I think JayEmm, Joe Achilles and Petrol Ped (for tuned mini stuff) are at least watchable and have useful reviews. And that GFWilliams stuff posted earlier is nicely shot.

Ideally I'd like to see a collaboration between HubNut and TGE.

Oh, so each of those Olly Higuys articles was different? I thought I was reading the same thing over and over each time.

I saw he is doing a podcast with Jonny from Fifth Gear who I remember got a bit pissy because influencers were invited to a car launch and he wasn't. I wonder what they'll talk about?
