Yo yo yo - What Up?

No offense intended towards the original poster here. Maybe I'm just getting old, but is anyone else getting tired of the "edgy" camera techniques and buzzy rap soundtracks that can be found in every single video having anything to do with powersports these days?

Watch the video again. Is the cameraman having a epileptic seizure, or has he just watched too many MTV videos, and he now thinks this is how all videos must be filmed?

I like most music - even some rap and hip-hop, but as far as I know there is not a law that says synthesizer-generated buzzing noises and Auto-tuned vocals must be used in every video that features a motorcycle.


Ahhh...that felt good. Old man rant over.

Wow. First post. Must be a record...





Yeah, I usually mute the sound. Pretty cool stunting, though...

No offence taken bro , I turned the sound way down myself . The stunter is a BMW sponsored rider and this video was likely edited to look "edgy" .....or epileptic as you say . The reason I like the video is that this bike was awaited for such a long time worlwide, with almost as much speculation as the new VFR , when dealers finally took delivery they were told that no keys would be given out yet ..........more waiting ...........meanwhile here is some stunter out in the back parking lot of Low-Cost storage Co. , ragging on it and drifting it about for fun .........I secretly hoped he would bale and trash the bike ........just to read all the comments on youboob and other bike forums

Here is the YouTube of the same video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-rdm_YwLgc, funny to see the comments the more it gets viewed , I like the one comment about the tail gate

.... " This guy got the first S1000RR in the country and he's opening his tailgate with a screwdriver? Come on dude! Seriously"

You can see why it's dented at the end of the video , riding up the ramp .......

A general observation- I doubt very few full time Versys riders will understand the meaning of "sponsorship" as this gentleman seems to grasp fully. Looks fun though,

All he needs to do is accidentally back that tailgate into a mailbox and bend it back the other way.

I used to load my dirtbikes that way all the time, only way to fly when you're riding alone.

i think it is a waste to trash a beautiful work of art of any kind just so a few teenagers in their rooms of their parents house can go wow!!

although i can appreciate a professional's skill, it makes weak minded kids do a monkey see monkey do experience which is dangerous and irresponsible.

I am very angered when i see kids do wheelies at highway speed with full traffic around them...

when they crash and have to be in rehab for the rest of their life (in a wheelchair) and eat through a straw on MY tax dollar, ..... not to mention the danger to other people...

I JUST GO NUTS!!!!

I understand why people think stunting is bad , but your logic makes no sense .........I recall a time when snowboarding was a punk teenager thing and it was banned on most ski hills ...........now it is an Olympic sport . If it's a monkey see-do thing , as you say . Maybe they should ban NHRA Drag Races and NASCAR too...... friday night "it makes weak minded kids do a monkey see monkey do experience which is dangerous and irresponsible."
If 2 kids in Ohio drag race daddys camaro on a saurday night and flip it into a ditch , are your tax dollars not just as responsible to pay for that as well ???
Stunting is slowly becoming more mainstream , and most local "actual stunters" nowadays stick to parking lots and industrial areas . Plus it's mostly slow speed crashes , so limited hospital time for your tax to pay for . It's road racers that cause the most damage ( and deaths ) , riding like Rossi on a back country mountain road and dragging a knee ..........I am not trying to defend stunting , I don't stunt ( I do wheelie ) though .........I just disagree with your theory .

Yes phdmam! Your right! I think people should be strictly controlled over what they can and can't do! That way we won't have all this craziness.
