I looked through the thread and didn't see this one posted. I know most of us on this site aren't into stunting, but this is pure gold and it had already made its rounds to other sites.

Synopsis: Dude posts an advertisement on Craigslist for stunting lessons for $50/hr. Some guys on another forum decide from the description, etc. that he has no idea what he's talking about so they set up a training session and comedy ensues.

Awesome road. hmmmm... Dinna see the famous 'corkscrew' about 15 mi west of Red Bluff?

I do know there is at least one 'rollercoaster' bump on that road that will get a 1985 Aerostar van airborne at about 70 mph. (hint: don't try this).
Didn't wreck, but I think the pucker marks are probably still in the seat.

Many thanks to the rider who put these videos up.

A stretch of road I've driven countless times since 2004...

These clips warm my heart. I love Laverdas, and I rode the great Passo Stelvio last Sept, both glorious!

Anybody know what kind of bike the lead rider is using? The camerman's bike sounds like a thumper of some kind.

Now I know why "Ospédale" sounded so familiar. Its the D368 on Corsica out of Porto Vecchio. Rode it in 2006. Great twisty road up to Zonza.

Notice though at the 1'30" mark when they are passing those cars, that the cars all had their right tires on the right white lane providing room to pass, unlike the moron car drivers here that would try to take you out. The main reason why I like driving in Europe...less short pecker syndrome attitude behind the wheel.

Short sleeves? I'd gear up better if I were them though. But they'd sure leave most of the hot shots here in the dust. Good control and it looks like that rider had lots of money for rear tires the way he was dragging it through the curves.

Two videos (both selectable in High Quality) of another road I like riding, especially where the section ends up getting ultra narrow...
