Well, I am certainly impressed with those examples of rider skills, particularly the first video.

The best rider I've ever known personally was an ice racer:

Almost got his leg completely cut off at the knee in a crash. He's the guy that got rid of his Honda Hurricane in '88 after owning it for about 4 months. Said it was too much bike for him.

I love this video too... just reminds me of my misspent youf. :rolleyes:

No skills, just a bunch of friends learning their bikes. Keep in mind a few of these guys crashing are now pros in the stunt world. Crashing is learning lol

I'm gonna think about this video whenever I'm buying a used bike. (Note to self: Don't buy bikes from Chris' friends.)

:D

This is an example of professional roadracing etiquette - the gentlemanly art of passing. Note the wheelie lol:

my take offs and using the brakes are my problems in the rain - my take offs i burn rubber at every red light.

i had to use the brakes hard in the rain and bike did the sideways slide, but i diidnt lose it...

i've rode three times in the rain and all i got to say about it is, i had fun...

the bike did very well other than those few incidents...

I don't know anything about the video. I'm sure I can read South Kensington on one of the busses at the beginning, so it's in London.
A few painful outtakes at the end of the vid too, makes you realise even more how difficult it is....
