  1. I just watched this off the link on news.com.au, crazy. I was worried about the bike, but then they said that it had a parachute too!
  2. Ah yes, I can see it now...

    For sale: One bike, only ever been dropped once
    (from a height of 4 kms, but don't worry it had a parachute!)


    Imagine contacting the insurance company if the parachute didn't work...

    "Yeah hi, I need to make a claim for my motorbike - its been totalled"

    "How did the accident occur sir?"

    "Its parachute didn't open"

    "I beg your pardon sir?"

    "Yeah its parachute didn't open after I rode it out of a plane"

  3. :rofl: classic, I wish I had thought of that :rofl:.
  4. I've been waiting to someone do that ever since watching Thrillbillies. They were jumping bikes into the Grand Canyon
  5. ATGATT. Glad to see he still wore all of his motorcycle safety gear. You never know when a rogue Volvo will come out of nowhere at you, even up there.
  6. dats just awesome!!! combining 2 things i probably love the most into 1 adrenalin rushing maneuver, would be good if he landed and keep riding :D
  7. love riding.. and love sky diving.

    would be interesting experience.

    could do an awesome superman hahhaha

    must plan my next dive actually.. but no throwing a bike out at the same time.
  8. What's the point of that? Dropping with motorbike...
    He could have jump with the Piano. Would be the same.
