Motorcycle Stunter

IMG_7204.jpg (118 KB)

Shot this at a stunt show in Alameda County. I don’t recall the name of the show or the name of the stunter offhand. He was/is part of a local group called BTB.

The colors are funky. Photoshop and I had a disagreement with RAW file handling. *grr*

      There is no way that you saw someone doing what this guy was doing on the freeway. This guy was doing small circles in first gear, going slow enough I could walk around him to take pictures.

      This stunt show was more European style, where everything is slow and controlled. It’s not stuff people can do on the freeway. It takes skill. You can’t rely on ever increasing RPMs to keep the front end up.

      Oh, I Did Not Know This, i just Kinda Saw The Picture And Guessed What He Was Doing D:

      @Drew
      I Don’t Know, I Just do. I Tried Stopping But I End Up Doing It Anyway. You Can Bet Though That Every Time I Post At Least One Person Will Point It Out. Not To Sound Mean, its Just Someone Will Always Points It Out.

      People on MCS have some knee jerk negative reactions to motorcycle pictures.

      I would rather you typed with no caps at all then type the way you do. It’s actually hard to read. I pause at each word in my head… it’s extremely non-fluid. Not an attack… just saying. Do you think it’s an OCD thing?

    10. giant sprocket, underinflated rear. these bitches are a dime a dozen, if that.

      Real motorcycle stunt talent resides in Christian Pfeiffer: www.chrispfeiffer.com/

      I don’t think you can really compare an actual pro to people who are still learning and working their way there.

    12. just saying that with those rear wheels, my dog could do a wheelie at 1/2 mph. Pfeiffer’s main bike is a 400+ pound BMW with drive shaft.

    17. my apologies, i gave you the benefit of the doubt and assumed you were at least somewhat intelligent.

      I’m going to assume that you aren’t particularly knowledgeable about bikes.

      The BMW your boyfriend uses for stunting is easier to do wheelies on and find the balancing point that the sport bike in the photo I took.

      I have been known to give my stunter friends a hard time because they choose the bikes that aren’t made for stunting to stunt on.

      Most of the pros outside of the US stunt on upright bikes (like the BMW, triumph, etc) and/or they modify the front ends so that they are in a more upright position.

      Also, the engine on the BMW is more ideal than the 600cc Honda that you see in my picture. The group that that stunter is part of prides themselves in being able to do all the same stuff on their smaller CC bikes than the posers on the freeway on liter bikes.

      I’m not saying he’s as good as your butt buddy but he still deserves respect for doing something that requires skill and doing it in a responsible and safe manner.

    19. it’s easier to balance on a full rear tire? it’s easier to wheelie on a bike gear for speed rather than torque? it’s easier to life a heavier bike into a wheelie? and i’m the one not knowledge about bikes? i attended my first race at six months old and have been on two wheels since i could reach the pegs. at any rate, i’m done with this. i’m tired of arguing with trolls who have barely attained the iq of a fencepost. pax.

      Technically you are the troll.

      I grew up around motorcycles as well and have been on them riding since I was a small child.

      Why do you keep responding as if I’m saying the guy in the photo is a better stunter than the person you so admire? I never said that.

      Go ahead and run away… your half ass attempt at making points makes me feel like I’m talking to a drunk retard.
