These guys are called "trials" riders. I've seen guys like Danny in person and it almost seems like magic....how can they do that? To be able to land their front, or rear wheel on a narrow ledge, wall, rock, etc. is amazing. To be fair, they do a walk through before they try this stuff, and then visualize each stunt. And, no doubt, there were a few falls, or accidents not shown on video. Nevertheless, they are amazing. Thanks for sharing!

Speaking of Bike rides, check this out. This guy must have a death wish! It's not even easy to watch without flinching Hope it comes thru. You may have to copy and paste, but it's worth the time.

A friend on Facebook sent me a link to this video:



To me this is really amazing because it appears to be shot in sequence without much interruption, if any.

Larry, that video had me putting my hands up in front of my face.....some of those spaces in between cars and trucks did not look big enough to get through, let alone at high speed. Loved the multiple wheelies he did!

It totally amazes me how these guys can do this without their feet touching the ground.
Me, my butt would hit the ground real quick!

While in Paris a few years ago, we watched bike after bike weave thru backed up traffic until one came upon a driver who just barely cracked his door to see what was backing us up. The biker hit the mirror and the last we saw was him flying thru the air. Was not a pretty picture! As in life, it only takes one mis-cue to mess it up1
