SATURDAY PHOTO #8 – you’ll believe a bike can fly

What the...?

This shot requires a little visual explanation… Three young gentlemen were entertaining us at the Sydney Royal Easter Show by riding their motorbikes up a steep ramp at the right of the picture, performing airborne acrobatics, then landing apparently unscathed on the ramp to the left.

I assume they were ‘young’ gentlemen because nobody who does this sort of thing can expect to live to a ripe old age. The extreme sport is called ‘freestyle motocross’ and I won’t be trying it any time soon.

Taken with my Canon 500D with 17-85 lens stretched to its limit.

  1. Great shot. Some people do silly things.

  2. Ah yes, boys and their toys. (Mine are bikes and cameras).
