    Impressive skills, but I feel that the scripted parts detracted from the video.

    Btw, do you drink Redbull?

    I don't know if I've ever even tried it.
    Those fancy pants drinks are too spendy for this cheapskate.

    pass cars riding the double yellow line

    no helmet

    Clearly, I didn't either.

    I used to grab ahold of a stopped or slow-moving truck, and keep hold up to traffic speed (this would be through town, so max about 45 mph).

    Amazing I lived to become a productive adult...

    Of course, I've survived past that, and am now a non-productive retired person...

    That guy is a menace to society. But he makes for a cool video just the same.

    Had to be planned out in lots of little segments because cameras had to be set up for each

    Me too. I did some crazy stuff that looking back leaves me in a state of being utterly stupefied as to what I was thinking and what ever motivated me, and I still know the answers to those questions. And remarkable and inexplicably, my dumb acts of self-loathing are not what have caused any of my serious injuries.

    No doubt. One cannot simply spontaneously ride their bike on someone's head. But he still rode his bike on those two guy's heads.

    I have to admit, I like watching the bike tricks that do involve a high degree of finesse in their sport, but I also like watching them go splat.

    It truly is amazing what the human body is capable of doing.
