Re: Guys kind of video

Yeah, whenever I watch videos like that I wish I never got rid of my BMX/Freestyle Mongoose bike. I love that thing. I did dirt trails, dirt jumps, ground stunts, and ramps on that thing....

*sigh* childhood memories.

But that guy really KNOWS his bike. Its weight, balance, brakes, tires, everything. It's very impressive.

And yes: if he had a SMB it would be much better! LOL.

Re: Guys kind of video

I knew it was just a matter of time before he hit the rocks. And now it is just a matter of time before he hits them again. Sometime in the future we will hearing of his death. But, his family will say, "He died doing what he loved."

Camera mount? It definitely won't help much if he hits anything at that speed.

Well, Jeb Corliss didn't learn any lessons when his buddy base Jumper Dwain Weston was torn to pieces when he hit a bridge at 120mph. Corliss went under and the other above but cut it too close. Be warned, it's kinda graphic.

A base jumper died in the Little Colorado River Gorge on the Navajo Indian Reservation last tues.

I always thought being an adrenalin junkey meant as getting scared as you can without getting hurt. But these guys are crazy.
