The video, uploaded by user “Ballerboyz” has had nearly 165,000 views since it went up on December 15th. His face is never revealed during his tour of Munster as he keeps his helmet on - but the rest of him definitely is. He strips off completely before mounting the bike.
The motorcylist roars through Münster, North Rhine-Westphalia, on his R6 motorbike – shocking shoppers perusing the Christmas markets and strolling around the upmarket city centre.
“It was not unappetizing to watch,” shopper Birgit Weusthoff-Schulze told regional newspaper the Westfälische Nachrichten. She saw the spectacle first hand, and admitted to having to peer through the smoke made by the burning rubber to see the driver properly.
Yet the stunt didn't just raise eyebrows – the police told the paper that they had opened an investigation into the case. “We think it was a petty offence,” said Andreas Bode.
Identifying the driver – who has a Facebook page but under his “Baller Boyz” identity – could be difficult, said Bode. “He is not recognizable,” said the spokesman, adding that the police would be looking into it regardless.
The rider posted a photo on Facebook and bet he would ride naked through Münster's Christmas market but only if the photo got 1,000 "Likes".
