I know most of you guys dont care about the chopper thing but Larry was a great guy. I am posting this here because of our love to stunt our little bikes and the feeling that we all have thinking that they are so small you cant get hurt. Larry was doing some slow stunts, fell and hit his head. One thing to remember is that he was not a rookie at this. He had been doing stunts for years as a stunt man in Hollywood.
Larry passed away at 3:30 am this morning.
'Indian Larry' hurt on stunt in Cabarrus
Builder of custom motorcycles airlifted from county arena
A custom-motorcycle builder known to Discovery Channel viewers as Indian Larry was seriously injured while performing a stunt Saturday at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center.
Cabarrus County officials said the stunt driver sustained head injuries and was in critical condition after being airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center. A CMC official couldn't confirm his condition.
Indian Larry has been featured on Discovery's Biker Build-Off television series and was at the arena to perform stunts during the three-day Liquid Steel Classic and Custom Bike Series.
"He was riding and standing up on his seat," said Mike Downs, Cabarrus County deputy county manager. "The bike started to wobble and he was not able to regain control."
Indian Larry fell off the bike before a crowd of about 8,000. He was not wearing a helmet. Paramedics were standing by at and aided him until he could be airlifted to CMC, Downs said.
The show continued, but all other stunts were canceled, Downs said.
Indian Larry is known for his eccentric nature, according to his official Web site. His résumé includes movie, video and television.
