I can tell I am old because that made me incredibly nervous.

On the plus side, that means I can start smoking a pipe and going out to eat at 4.

I clicked because I had no idea what it could be. Seems pretty obvious in retrospect.

see now, I admire the mindless suicidal energy of youth.

also, there's no reason why there couldn't be an americanized live-action remake of AKIRA which didn't suck...

The Baltimore City Paper did a good story on these guys.

Some of that just doesn't seem possible... or I guess what impresses(?) me is how far some of those guys push the laws of physics. Like, I'm doing a wheelie and that's cool, but I think I can lean back just a little more... a little more... until the line drawn through the center of your wheels is perpendicular to the ground.

The guys I didn't feel nervous for, because they're doing what they want to do, but the girl on the back of that quad, holy crap. And I didn't know you could steer a quad without the front wheels, but evidently you can.

Unlike skate and bmx trick videos, these do not seem to have the obligatory montage of crashes at the end.

I was simultaneously worried for the girl on the back's skull and horrified by the amount of butt crack.

Oh man, you just made me really excited about a Bmore version of Akira, even some low-budget job. Actually, a low-budget "dirty riding" Akira sounds pretty awesome, too. Except I would also show my age and be worried about the people doing the stunts and the fight scenes.
