No helmet?
No padding?
Vertical?
Splintering?

This was called the wall of death for what reason? To make it seem `cool` to all the ten year olds that walked past?

He fell off. I didn`t see him lying crumpled in a lifeless heap. To me, this is not a `wall of death`. There is no death. There is no immediate danger to them. It`s not even a wall.

Oh no. He fell off his bike. Wearing no protective gear. Yet he is still absolutely fine. Just shows how serious the fall was. Really.

And that line they put on the video was not the point at which it goes vertical. That point is pretty much at the top of the `wall`. They put it there to appear `impressive`. I wasn`t impressed.

These guys fail at life.

Thanx Mani-Jac. Your post redeemed the first two videos. Those guys are psychonauts.

They had a sissy man on a sissy bike so you just knew it had to go wrong at some point.

I was actually hoping for more blood and mabey a trip to the hospital. *sigh*

"Pretty sweet... but some people have WAY to much time on their hands"

What else are they supposed to have, a life wasted away at a meaningless desk job. This is a good use of time :) I heard that you only have to stay above 20MPH to do that or around that amount, maybe it was just a few more but I definitely remember it being in the lower 20`s.

I think time used to entertain the community of the internet is time well spent.

don`t know what your quote is refering to, but...i`m pretty sure its vertical. maybe they`re talking about the very top of the ramp though. i could be wrong.

yay they were nice enough to post not only the "making of", but first ride. Too bad I was blind and didn`t notice that gem when I trashed the "making of" video. My bad.

That said, this video still kinda sucked. I kept expecting to see the rear wheel of the scooter go through decking where it was cracked.
