Weaving through Russian traffic on a crotch rocket
I haven't done it myself, but I have to imagine this is what it's like. Make sure you watch it full screen for the full effect. This was posted by RichardW, so if you like it, check out his blog for some more death-defying shit seen from the daredevil's perspective.
I always wanted to ride a motorcycle, but I'm not sure I have the skills. Two of my friends had/have their own bikes and haven't died yet, but the closest I've come to riding a motorcycle was my friend's scooter as a teenager. He had just gotten it and was in love with the little thing when I visited his parents' house one time. I told him I didn't know how to ride one, but he insisted I try it out on the driveway. I carefully sat astride the "beast," turned it on, and promptly crashed it into a tree about three yards away.
