    That guy is one very talented nut! Riding down the stairs while sitting on the handle bars is a good trick...

    Yeah, pretty much all of it falls in the "don't try this with your own bike" category.

    There is a guy here in the Kansas City area that runs an outfit called illconduct.com who does some similar stuff on Harleys and Buells. I once saw him jump a bunch of pickups on a Buell Blast. It takes all kinds, I reckon.

    Every see that commercial of the dude who said he wanted to buy a Harley, but had to buy dinning room set?

    Well I want a Harley, but I bought all my guns instead. OOOOOOOOH boy the Harley I could own fi I'd spent all the gun money on it.

    I'll keep my guns. They Harley will come in time.

    Does anyone know what year and model that is? Its a smaller one, but it doesnt look like a sportster, I like the old school look of that bike.

    Not sure of the year, but it is definitely a Sportster. Probably a 1200 Custom.

    Hard to see, but by the front-end, the older, smaller capacity peanut tank (I think) and the ham can air cleaner - I'd say it's an older Sporty.

    Anyone who's ever ridden one has even more appreciation for how good a rider he is. Yikes!

    He's either got guts or is nuts. Or both. That riding the handlebars while running on the back wheel is crazy.
