    This is not a fatwa by any stretch but im just thinking on what basis would it be haram ?

    A Clear cut Quran/Hadith evidence? Not that i know of

    Danger to life ? Thats subjective, depends on rider/conditions

    A Waste of Money? (Its not a cheap hobby but then most serious hobbies are not cheap) and im not sure how
    that would lead to a general prohibition since some rich Muslims own Sportscars, Helicopters, Jets and all these
    things have element of danger in them.

    If i remember correct, if something (halal) is distracting you from Fard it could be haram (for you) and distracting from Wajib it could be Mukhrooh (for you) and
    Allah knows best,

    Is driving a motorcycle as a hobby/pass-time haram? I know it is permissible to drive it as a form of transportation, but what is the ruling if you want to drive it for fun?

    Especially if you're going high speeds (in a controlled environment). Isn't it too risky?

    I don't think it is equivalent to the riding of a horse for fun, because there is an actual benefit from the experience you gain from riding from the horse as well as it being a sunnah.

    Please try not to be BIAS, and give me your honest opinion inshallah.
