Keep in mind that streetbike weighs between 400 and 500 pounds, and he flicks it like a 20 pound bike!

If you ever get out to SoCal let me know. There is a place where all the M-cyclist ride and practice all their stunt riding on the weekends. Watching on vid is much different then in person. Especially when you see a beginner trying it for the first time. If you want to see a good 10 to 15K get thrown away (literally) then this wood be the place.

During the week is when they head out to shoot the vids.

Yeah there are a ton of squids out there but a lot of the riders that do the shows at the local races and even a few nationaly, who actually ride to live (literally), are the ones out here on the streets practicing. They just like showing off and we get to watch for free.
