What We Think
Drag racing has gained immense popularity among internet users, with many YouTubers using it to compare motorcycles. However, drag racing can cause significant damage to motorcycles, as they are not designed for prolonged periods of high-speed straight-line racing. We strongly discourage drag racing on personal motorcycles, as it can lead to irreversible harm. As motorcycle owners, it’s crucial to prioritize the safety of your vehicle and avoid replicating extreme stunts performed by vloggers for online views and engagement.
