Stunting is undeniably cool. Any good stunter is an extremely agile, adept, and impressive rider– who doesn’t love a good wheelie? Having said that, however, there are a lot of motorcyclists on the road who try to show off their stunting “skills” (we put skills in quotation marks because many of these riders are perhaps not as skillful as they may believe themselves to be) on public, shared roads.
Below is a video of one such rider. This guy was showing off riding his motorcycle backwards, and when he adjusted his body on the bike, his trick backfired. This rider’s brazen and dangerous display on a shared road was only made more precarious by the fact that he chose not to wear any protective gear. This guy is lucky nothing worse happened.
Sharing the road with cars can be risky enough for motorcyclists; don’t heighten the danger by stunting in the open road. Everything has its time and place. Oh, and wear a helmet (at the very least).
