Re: Looks like fun!

Wheels on the back* That must be for the TWO UP option.. RAD, totally rad.... Can you imagine the look on the MC riders as he blew past them?

I guess hes a mechanic.. thats why the wheels on the back....

Don't be afraid to say what you feel, as those that matter DOnt mind and those that mind Dont matter.

Man that is insane.

Yes can you imagine the bikers looking down and seeing a guy flying past on his belly?

Wonder what kind of speeds he was hitting? Looked way fast to me

Re: Looks like fun!

There's no doubt what he was doing on public roads was dangerous. However think of the coordination of doing something like this not to mention the body strength of lifting yourself six inches or so and keeping it there while making a corner. By the way his apexing the corners was just about perfect even though he went into the other lane at the corners entrance, I would think he had some sort of roadrace experience. From the experience I've had racing various things while sitting a few inches off of the ground I would say his top speed was somewhere around 80 MPH.
If they had something like this in the Summer Olympics I sure as hell would watch it!
