Default Very talented but I still can't respect him...

http://www.wimp.com/guybike/

Might have been posted before but there's no good way to search video so I'm posting it. The guy is obviously talented but I still want to call him a squid. Something about stunters just make want to hit something with a hammer. Maybe it's what they do to perfectly good motorcycles. Watching it my first thought would be how much better it would be with a Street Triple. Immediately after that thought is me punching myself in the face hard repeatedly for suggesting such a fate for one of the best bikes ever made.

Talented, no doubt, but I know how you feel. For me it isn't the fact that he's stunting, it's the fact that he's stunting in a hoodie and baggy jeans that sag around the waist. It's a really bad example for any impressionable young folks watching the video.

At least he had a helmet on.

He definitely has some skill. I never got into stunting a bike but I know I can't do a backflip, let alone off the back of a moving motorcycle.

lol pssshhhh at least this guy is wearing a hoodie and jeans with a helmet......here in MN there is a no helmet law and I have seen guys on sportbikes wearing nothing but shorts, flip flops and a T shirt.

I would rather be stunting on a bike with a helmet, hoodie and jeans then cruising the streets wearing pretty much nothing. However I will say for the people who don't wear helmets while they ride they are just making the world a better place for those of us who are smart enough to keep wearing them! lol

Never the less....sweet video! I am with that guy who was blind folded, I would have flinched as well!

That was pretty awesome, nothing not to like about that video.

The guy is just showing some wicked skills is a little section of a sectioned off back road with some cones.. anyone who has a problem with that is a kill joy! Nothing wrong with his clothes he's wearing for what he's doing.. I've seen far worse.

It's when people do that kind of thing on the streets around other people or property that is pathetic. Or riding in general without basic gear, especially without a helmet. I can't believe it's legal not to wear a helmet in some developed countries - seems backwards.
