    Link: Ballsy Motorcycling Over Snowy Mountain Ridges - Some people are claiming this is doctored footage, I-A-B. What`s your call? Looks legit to me.

    The only thing doctored about it is the choice of a lens that makes it appear steeper and more narrow than it actually is.

    Legit, just the camera angle and being mounted to a helmet gives it a strange look and confuses easily confused viewers.

    Skate videos always use fisheye lens like this vid to make it look bigger/more insane

    Looked good to me until around 1:18 where he appears to just wiggle his handlebars back and forth. I dunno. Kinda suspicious.

    Why do people think that`s fake, just because they wouldn`t do it themselves. It`s perfectly plausible, there`s a fairly decent track to ride, it just so happens that there`s a significant drop either side.

    @Skittzo - he`s doing that to try and keep traction on the snow.

    It`s real it just looks hairier in the video because the camera gives a view much different than the actual view of the rider. This is also a real repost...

    Ballsy or just Stupid?

    I love motorcycles, grew up with them. But riding along a cliff edge is about as smart as playing chicken with a train.

    "Why isn`t his head moving, it is completely still?"

    Cause the camera is attached to the helmet?

    It`s in western Colorado and it`s real. Keep in mind that most helmet cams distort the image so it`s not as crazy as it looks.

    My son and I do this all the time...search for "5MOH" or "5 miles of he*l" and "dirtbike" and you`ll get a glimpse of real insanity.

    fastfxr said kind of what I was going to. Quite probably it`s just the fisheye effect from the helmet camera that makes it seem more improbable than it actually is. Pretty cool though.

    Gerry i hate to say this to you, but just because you`re to scared to do something, doesn`t make it stupid. People who do these things are just willing to sacrifice or jeopardize their lives in an attempt to truly live. There is nothing stupid about that.

    He`s using a wide-angle lense which makes the dropoffs look much steeper than they actually are.. so no not that ballsy..

    Whole buncha things, but not doctored.

    1: It`s a dirtbike, not a motorcycle. There`s a whole different set of handling characteristics that go with that, not the least of which is better traction on loose/slippery terrain.

    2: Like Kain1 said, wide-angle, almost fisheye lens makes the dropoffs look a lot more impressive than they actually are. Very few ridges maintain much more than a 90° peak.

    #: Balls are not in evidence, therefor gender is indeterminate.
