    Update!! 187 MPH Idiot Motorcycle Driver Turns Himself In.

    A man allegedly responsible for a viral YouTube video showing a 300 km/h motorcycle ride on a highway outside Victoria, B.C. has turned himself in to police, Kelowna RCMP say.

    In June, Saanich police issued an arrest warrant for Randy George Scott, 25, for the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

    Scott is in custody after turning himself into police Tuesday night and will appear in court on Wednesday, Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark said.

    "He came to the front counter and made and admission as to his identity that he had a warrant out for his arrest," Clark said.

    The video shows the driver of a motorcycle going at high speeds, at one point nearing 300km/h, weaving between vehicles and sometimes passing along the centre line. At the time, veteran traffic officers and professional motorcycle riders were shocked by the footage, and said it was lucky no one was killed.

    "It should be noted that videos such as this glorify dangerous driving behaviours, which is a direct contradiction to our commitment to road safety" Clark said.

    The video was posted to YouTube on April 8, and just over a week later, Saanich police seized a blue Yamaha R1 the motorcycle believed to have been used in the video.

    Officers said the bike was registered to the rider's mother. They said the rider was unlicensed, uninsured and believed to be a 25-year-old man with 25 previous infractions.

    At what point do you put someone like this in Jail/prison? He obviously is going to do what ever he wants with no regard to laws or public safety. Some kind of punishment that
    will make the choices he has been making not worth the consequences.

    Throw him in the slammer for a while, so he can suffer some consequences. Have his Mom, who failed to teach him that actions have consequences, join him.

    Since his mom provided the bike to her son whom she would know has a suspended/revoked license she should be arrested and charged also

    These bikes are hard to control speed. I just got a Kawasaki Ninja for a playtoy. Nowhere near that speed, although I could if i chose to. That is scary with all that traffic. Go to a track.

    I agree its impressive to maintain control on a bike at those speeds, but I also have to agree that his mother should be locked up with him for loaning a bike to a person with no license.

    I do however want to know if he was running a stabilizer on the bars or front end.

    He should have got into racing and he wouldn't be in trouble but would still have his fun.
