These guys are getting sicker every year. I have watched the Xgames every year since I can remember and the tricks and danger get elevated every year. I never thought I would see a backflip on a motorcycle, much less a backflip w/ variation, completely sick!!!

That's pretty cool.

The backflip to backflip Metzger did was more impressive to me than this though.

What a change from the late 40s & early 50s as I earned good money in going through wooden walls on fire, ramp to fire walls & ram again, or so called outhouses with someone still inside. Everyone thought that was great.
What we are seeing now is simply to extreme.
Reminds me of when some of my buddies dreamed up this idea that I whould ride through bales of stray set on fire & a tunnel under & beside them. I turned down that crazy one down without question.
Only a few yrs later I saw where a Brit did the same & of all things he came roaring around the the front entrance again & went into the flames, to never make it. Why the second try one never knows -------- so there were crazier fools then myself & obviously crazier ones in this time of life.

Foam pits.

Mac, a 360 is harder than a backflip heelclicker, so that would be something!

Bacchus : Good question ratter.  

If I remember correctly, you Aussies are the ones that measure driving distances in stubbies, instead of hours  
I'm not such a big beer drinker myself, but if coxy was still posting on here, he could tell you all driving distances converted to how many stubbies, i.e home to work is a 2 stubbie trip

Foam pits.
But still, imagine the first time you tried one of those over good old terra firma . I have to admit, those guys have my respect, in a warped sorta way.

I just got back from Disneyland last week, and they were doing the Big Air shows down there gearing up for the X-games. All those guys are very impressive, but Mike Metzger is just a notch above all of them. He is freakin amazing, and just makes it look so easy. He was doin no hand flips and heal clicker flips during the show.
