I wanted to share this video, because I saw it on ICHC (I love the cheeseburger) and thought it was so cool I should share it.

This is why two-wheel drivers are awesome, and why they will get extra brownie points when I am evaluating who will get barged and who won't when I become chicktator.

Calf-saving detour WIN

Anyway, I figured maybe we could have a thread where people could post cool/funny/amazing/etc two-wheel related videos they wanted to share.

SN: am I the only one surprised that his bike held up his weight like that? Not that I have any clue how much that bike weighs...

It never occurred to me that you could tie a line to a motorcycle and lower yourself into something using that line and not take the bike with you, or at least knock it down.

Great video, btw.

I'm surprised too! It's not just the weight but how it balances on the stand. I guess anchoring from the bottom helped, but still…

This guy seemed to know what he was doing. Or managed to act in all the right ways without knowing what he was doing.

Props!

No way of knowing how long it was down there- but it was so tired from swimming it didn't fight him at all the whole time, instead of acting like a normal scared animal would- poor thing probably did not have the energy to do anything other than enjoy the ride. It also looks VERY young. I may have been as young as a few days old.
