Reality show

Caught a glimpse of one yesterday at the gym. I dont know who came up with the idea for this one, but somehow they had a couple of really talanted dirtbike guys jumping over pianos and dinner tables while holding lit candles and flowers. The guys were incredibly skilled, the concept of the show was incredibly stupid.
My question, if anyone seen the same show, what kind of dirtbikes were those? Incredibly light, tiny machines. At first I thought they were bicycles made to look like dirtbikes...

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

No, they're manufactured, mostly by Spanish makes such as Gas-Gas but I have seen a Honda at one trials comp. Search for a trials competition video, awesome stuff what they can do. It's more popular in Europe, especially Spain.

Awesome stuff, hey? I love watching those guys.

I once saw a guy complete a simple course WITHOUT A FRONT END ON THE BIKE! It had a set of bars attached and that was it! F*cking amazing stuff!!
