It looks like those two had been going at each other on other occasions. I'm sure it wasn't the first time those two hooked up because the bike rider was sitting and waiting for the Beemer to show up. He had secondary cameras set up to make observation shots so he knew where it was going. If the Beemer had hit something, the biker would have been right into its bumper before he could even think of hitting the brakes.

who is this jackass?
At least Mr. Rider has the emergency flashers turned on.

You see a man and you think you know him, but you will never know his thoughts, dreams or passion, you will never know whats in his head.
The mans mind is all his, never to be revealed to any one but himself !
Uh, I don't get it...
So the guy on the bike is a cop?
I believe the guy on the bike is "Ghostrider", with a pro driver bud in the BMW. The link above takes you to the site, but I think you have to join to see the vids. He's one crazy sumpin-sumpin, does this stuff regularly. Sets up cameras in advance, incl. at least two on his bike, and does insane high-speed runs mostly in NW Europe (I think he lives in Sweden?). His main ride is a GSXR 1k with a huge turbo and all kinds of other crazy mods. On one vid I saw, he split between one semi in his lane and another in the oncoming lane on a two-lane highway.
Rumor is he may be/have been a pro racer. Never shows his face though, adding to the "legend" status. Probably has a buddy that's a cop and let him wear his gear/ride his bike for this vid.
Don't try this at home folks.
being a pro (or a purported one) and chasing another pro (or purported one) does not confer upon them some sort of immunity from harm as well as those who have to share the roads with these one (or more) ego driven infants...it is only a matter of time before they get wacked by another driver or force another driver into an accident. While these folks maybe pros, those around them sure as hell aren't and can't be expected to react like they are in some sort of scripted stunt.
Nothing like breaking the law and endangering others for fun and profit.
If this were a real chase, it could have ended real quick. All the car driver has to do is get up to a high speed, let the bike rider get nice and close to his bumper, then hit the brakes hard. The bike rider either smacks into the bumper, or has to dodge to the left or right of the car, then the car driver just has to bump him and knock him over. And no, I don't have a criminal mind, really.
What bike should you ride? The choice is personal. The reason is universal.
