Comparing a guy that does 180 roofgaps while firing a handgun on a bike with a freewheel to guys with freeoasters and no handguns just doesn't work, man.

I liked the half cab down stairs. He was sort of ahead of his time...

I find it funny that he rides with a helmet in park but never when he's doing roof gaps and such. Jason Levy is sick

doesn't look like anyone would notice/care on those cars... and it's seriously doubtful that he didn't have permission to do it... might have even been one of his own cars
