Bike Show..Strip Fest 2002..Crash Video!!

Hey I recorded this yesterday. A friend of mine promoted this Car/Bike/Stunt Show at a local Drap strip. I had a great time all day, it was so cool. I spent most of the day recording about 1.5 hrs of video and the following crash. Barracuda Films that did "Judgement Day" and other films is goign to use my video

The web page explains the crash, but 10 flips and 10 feet in the air. He was going about 80 when he lost it. To my knowledge the guys is doing ok.

The Video Size is 7.5 MBs, but it's worth the dnload!!

You guys are being a little harsh. You have to remember, every time you get on your bike you could crash too. Doesn't matter if you're doing stunts or riding to work. S**T Happens...

Just becuase you MIGHT be able to hop your bike in 1st, doesn't make you a stunt rider either!!!

That wasn't directed at you man..

They gave me a shirt that said.

"Wheelies do not make YOU a stunt rider!"

the funny thing is, I ended up hanging out with a lot of the stunt guys from the Show tonight and buying them shots all night!

Those guys were video taping all the women in the bar..

P.S. the women down here all look like models!!! LMAO!!!

Yup, you're absolutely right. But if I'm doing something completely stupid and I wreck my bike I'd expect every one of you to give me sh*t for it 'cause I deserve it. And my buddies, forget about it, they'd never let me forget it.

The guy in the video needs to hear some sh*t-talking from us and his buddies otherwise he might do something stupid again and trash another bike.

-Dan

ps - Every time that guy's bike rolled I could see my insurance rates going up!

pps - Thank God he was able to walk away, but maybe next time he won't be so lucky?!

I don't think the guy was an idiot at all.

#1 He was wearing his gear.

#2 He was riding in a controlled environment and not on the freeway with 20 other cars around.

Stunting does not make you an idiot, but when and where you choose to do stunts can. If done in a safe area with protective gear they are ok by me.

I'm glad the rider is ok.

P.S. I don't do stunts, I'm a track junkie.
