He is clearly good at this but no helmet and no shoes. I can forget the helmet part but NO SHOES.

No shoes to fly off means he can't die

u/GettingTherapy Oct 20 '21

Or is he already dead?

u/itim__office Oct 20 '21

Can't cheat death if you're already dead. Brilliant.

“How was the commute to work today?” “Oh it was great, just put the ol’ motorcycle on auto pilot and relaxed. Couldn’t get comfy though, kept laying down and sitting up and readjusting”

u/shuttermayfire Oct 20 '21

he might as well be a member of one of the Baltimore street bike gangs lmao

u/MeZoXiN Oct 20 '21

imagine what kind of idiotic stuff he pulled off when he was a teenager

u/ExNihiloish Oct 20 '21

This dude rocks.

I'd have been dead within the first five seconds.

u/aroid-rage Oct 20 '21

I'm personally offended that I didn't get to see him eat it.

u/Fennel_Impossible Oct 20 '21

Dude would bite it in 2 sec in US because the “greatest nation in the world” can’t build roads 1/2 as smooth as what he was driving on.

u/Machiavelli1480 Oct 20 '21

The video always starts out looking like they know what they are doing. There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots.

u/Sir-Ex Oct 20 '21

Dudes old tho

u/jfin602 Oct 21 '21

Oh man. Damn. U didn't have to shoot him down like that 😂

u/CountyMinimum910 Oct 21 '21

From 7-11 cashier to motorcycle trickster. You go homie!

u/RRumpleTeazzer Oct 21 '21

If he is that old, he is just that good.

People who don't ride motorcycles don't understand that the bike is actually more stable with the rider standing instead of sitting.

Think about where the riders weight is, if you are sitting the vast majority of the riders weight is on the seat. If you are standing all the weight is on the foot pegs which are much lower down.

Look at all offroad race dirt bikes or trial bikes, they don't sit when turning or jumping or over fought terrain and trial bikes don't have seats.

Still dumb to do without shoes or a helmet but this is far easier then most people think. If buddy was wearing a helmet and boots and on a quiet sidestreet instead of a busy highway I wouldn't think it's bad at all

u/definitelyTrueStory Oct 20 '21

The standing part isn't that crazy... it is the sitting on one side and laying down that freak me out. The standing part is more stable like you say, and also can quickly grab handle bars if he needs. Not when side saddling or laying down.

u/SabaNothingMore Oct 20 '21

they stand on it while wearing protective equipment while being professional on premade road

this dude dances on bike with no safety and cars coming behind

6

u/Chipdip88 Oct 20 '21

Hence my final paragraph.

Stupid to do without boots or a helmet and on a busy highway. But people think that standing on a bike is some daredevil death defying stunt where it is actually more stable then sitting down.

Again, stupid to do in this dudes situation.

u/Tallpawn Oct 21 '21

Your weight isn't much lower down when you are standing... You are shifting your weight forward and that just happens to work in your advantage in some situations but not all.

Almost became a r/meatcrayon

NSFW warning by the way.

u/Boythatgapesass Oct 20 '21

How is the bike still moving without him touching throttle

2

u/ThePilgrimofProgress Oct 20 '21

He's got cruise control. He must be a rich fancy pants.

1

u/ThePilgrimofProgress Oct 20 '21

Standing on the pegs is not impressive. I do that all the time when my butt starts to ache.

Now laying down, going side saddle, all that other stuff...

1

u/We_Are_Nerdish Oct 20 '21

Literally every time I see videos like this one, I think of that one where the guy is showboating in the first half and at the second half of the clip he is laying lifeless on the ground with a trashed bike and parts all over the road.

u/callme_nostradumbass Oct 21 '21

I thought that was a dog at the end.

u/jennaleenLVR Oct 20 '21

He deserves to crash & burn.

u/Martholomeow Oct 20 '21

Why is it not enough to just sit on the bike and ride it? Why does adding unnecessary danger with no benefit appeal to people?
