A dirt biker found a new way to get an adrenaline kick
Deserts are quite large, open kinds of places. And yet, somehow, people still find ways to interfere with each others’ afternoons. Like this unhappy confluence of man, machine, and another errant machine.
We’re not avid motorcycle jumpers ourselves, but we’re informed that you should always have a spotter on the other side of a dune to warn you of approaching animals, people, or convoys of American 4x4s.
That said, once everything was already in motion, both Jeep and motorcycle pilots did all they could to minimise the ensuing catastrophe – the Jeep driver jumped on his brakes and likely swore like a dockworker with a stubbed toe, and the rider set up his descent beautifully, shifting his weight to account for the interesting new developments to his intended landing site.
And, we’re happy to say the whole incident caused little more than a dented bonnet, an amazing video, and the untimely end of a few pairs of underwear.
Lesson: look where you’re going, kids!
