    Loved the front flip at 6:09 and loved the scenery. Not anything that hundreds of other top riders wouldn't feel very comfortable doing though and seen similar many times before.

    People do the same thing at speed on dirt bikes, which makes that look ordinary in comparison IMO.

    I did parts of the Cuillin ridge in boots and spikes and still ended up on my arse a few times. Amazing stuff.

    I have seen a few of Danny Macaskill's videos of him hopping round Edinburgh and they are pure mental also by the way.

    Cheating a bit to carry the bike like that, and I thought he might lose his boat cos he didn't tie it up.

    Joking.

    Absolutely amazing skills. For once the word "awesome" is appropriate. Thanks.

    Exactly 'you twat'.

    Controlling a dirt bike inches from death at 40mph is far more impressive to me than pedalling a mountain bike at much slower speeds.

    Capiche twat?

    So what part of my post was too much for your noggin to take on board gobby bollox?

    I simply said I find people who do the same thing on motorbikes, far more impressive than the people who do it on mountain bikes. Everything being relative of course and not taking anything away from the skill of the bloke in the OP.

    So what was it about my post that makes me a twat exactly? And how exactly is your amazing revelation that dirt bikes have engines relevant to what I said?

    You need to slow yourself down gobby bollox.

    Evidently so. I had already bitten my tongue from replying to gobby chav twats who want to one up every time, but it seems I cannot avoid him/them.

    ^ Well said willy. I should have bitten my tongue as well. It's just that kurgen is normally so normal that his gobby chav twatness took me by surprise. Must do better next time like what you did.

    The vid of a guy perching on a tiny ridge with huge gulfs of doom either side is a fine metaphor for fozzy trying to cling to his thread of sanity beset by madness all around.

    And you know they are both going to fall off sooner or later.
