The guys in that video have moved on from the parking lot/highway version of stunting. And most certainly upped their game a bit.

Forgive me but while I admit there are skills involved it's still showing off. I'm far more impressed by these guys. 140MPH and no front brake. Doesn't seem to bother them much.

Well, yes, of course, any form of racing is a much more practical application of skills.

I used to roadrace, and my cronies and I always used to go the Barbara Fritchie Classic & the Delaware Mile every year for our dirty roundy-round fix. IMHO, dirt track is one of the most underrated motorsports in the US.

I'm more impressed by the extreme enduro riders.

Quite often there's no front brake there either

Really? We may have bumped into each other.

Maybe we'll be seeing more of that when Vale has a bike that he trusts next year.
