The camouflage riding gear and state of the art colored helmets must make them feel invincible.
Nice shows though. Probably lots of fun to see in person.

I noticed the rider that was sitting way high on his bike reading was doing the SMIDSY weave as well!

I'm sure they all were using throttle locks as well. Strange that's none of them died!

Very skilled, but....

You wouldn't want to see their practices. I was in Madras, India, and they were filming one of their thousands of low budget movies. A stuntman did a dive off a crane on to a mattress. We next saw four people lifting him into a car for a trip to the hospital.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
