insane or brave, it sure is impressive! thank you for sharing
 
i would love to do it but just not that fast haha
 
Some guys have more balls than sense! :D
 
pure madness!!!!what s the point of that???
 
LOL... WOW. We are all familiar with the last word of the hill-billy naturally.. "Yo Bubba - watch this....."
 
+Mike Shaw Insane I have walked this type of snow covered ridge an it ain't easy.. Death Wish 24
 
Yes Has Large Pair And i Think He is vary cool That is
A Trail He's Ride ing on under his Bike And he is OH yea
In Control's BOTH Hands Not For most But Thanks for that.
 
Hahaha! at first I was like 'WTF that is insane!' then I realized it was fake.
 
Bravery? I'll certainly give you focus. Wonder if he made it the rest of the way ;-)
 
It made me feel lightheaded just watching this!! Yikes
 
Waaaa....!! This is amazing! This guy has BIG balls doing this crazy ride.
 
I'd be wearing a parachute just in case.
 
Looks neat but while watching it seemed like the front wheel wasn't turning and there was no snow/dirt in the treads. Watch at about 1:15 on for the clear picture.
Also as other comments speculate, could be a fisheye lens making the slopes look steeper than they are.
 
Thanks Ryan I feel better just thinking this is the case
 
Brave or Insane? Hmmm... I'm going to channel my inner Capt. Jack Sparrow and say "It's remarkable how often those two traits coincide, mate." If he had died he'd have been termed insane (and dead!). Since he survived to tell the tale... brave!
 
Awesome! I wanna know how he got the bike up there in the first place!
 
amazing......................................???????
 
Great video! This is filmed in a badlands-style terrain near Grand Junction, Colorado popular with ATV enthusiasts. It's definitely steep and this person is taking a risk riding this terrain, but the fisheye lens and the partial snowcover makes the terrain look a bit more imposing than it truly is - these are clay/silt ridges that are snow-free most of the year. The lack of vegetation is not due to it being a high alpine environment, but rather due to the rapid erosion common to badlands-style landscapes. I'm not trying to belittle the daring displayed here, as there are a few spots where they are obviously riding near some deadly exposure, I just wanted to provide some context for those not familiar with the area.
 
Oh my goodness, I would never be brave enough to do that!
 
Insane!! Too real!! Felt like I was there.
 
Nice. Makes me feel like a pussy, and I've been doing Kung Fu all my life.
 
I'm actually going to go with both...
 
does it make sense if I think I'd rather do that, than try to mountain bike along the ridge?
 
Dont believe the video, sorry
 
dont believe it either whe he goes to take off his helmet or something. and if it is real THIS GUY IS FUCKING CRAAAAAAZZZZZYYYYY
 
I don't know how that guy can ride a bike like that with the massive set of balls that he must have. Holy Crap Yo!!
 
Lol...my dad was doing that when he lived in Montana,I think its funny people dont believe that.
 
why'd he stop? pussy.
 
The only thing I could watch is the handle bars jerking back and forth!!!
 
Sorry, call me suspicious, but riding like that I would expect the rider's head to be bouncing around and its fixed totally still on the right hand side of the film and watch the front wheel carefully at about 40 seconds in and its not rotating...I have my doubts, just a hoax maybe ? ':¬D
 
That's his route to the closest store
 
Don't have nerves of steel but I bet its exhilarating
 
This is a hoax. No one could hold a camera that still and ride.
 
omg never could and would do that at all
 
hoax? its attached to his helmet! he's not holding it in his hand!
 
that looks like a video game (so its FAKE) and who would name something called Think You Have Balls!... it should be Think you have balls?
 
It would be more insane on a Mountain Bike - just sayin'!
 
go pro cameras are insane. this guy is a beast.
 
Why tha low video quality ? The go pro does nicely full HD. It is hardly watchable
 
never in a million years would i do that
 
im pretty sure i have balls even though im just 9
 
hmm i guess you would need to accelerate to get backup the hill... lol
 
Where's the helicopter footage? If somebody was going to do that then surely it would of been filmed from all angles. I reckon it's fake.
 
I have no idea how he can do that with balls the size of watermelons.. would be too hard to keep balance..
 
the bike looks like a game and the head don't move ( i say fake )
 
Yes I know the head is fake but who's driving the bike??
 
As I mentioned before, this terrain is near Grand Junction, Colorado and is quite popular with ATV and mountain bike enthusiasts. It may look impossible due to the fisheye effect, but this area is ridden regularly by people on motorcycles. Here's a video of another person riding in the same area that provides a better sense for the terrain:

Skinny Ridge in Grand Junction, Colorado
 
@0:36, I was breathless looking at that steep fall to the left,@0:45, I thought he's a gonner with that missing piece of way.
 
I think the entire video is a fake.
 
Looks fake because the helmet practically never moves. the bike is all over the place but the helmet is like a rock.
 
+Amanda Coraluzzi , you are an idiot. That is shot with a GoPro HD camera or similar with a helmet mount. Google them, every single video looks like that.
 
the head is moving dumb ass. The cam is attached to his head so it moves with it. It always looks like this
 
i am amazed at how many people think this is fake
 
he almost fell off there and i dont think its fake.
 
I love riding fin ridges on my mountain bike but the snow is gone by then. I'm going to look this one up for a ride this summer. Suddenly going to Fruita, CO got more exciting.
 
Looks edited to me
 
reminds me of back in the day, wallwalking and running along the Dun Morogh mountain tops in WoW
 
WTF, Insane with a death wish.
 
having balls is one thing, tempting fate to scatter them all over the side of a mountain is another!

Very cool and fun looking.
 
HE IS NOT RIDING ON THAT RIDGE, YOU SEE NO SNOW BEING KICKED UP BY THE FRONT WHEEL , EQUALS FAKE
 
That's old school, I do that in my backyard
 
I vote insane... or fake
 
the dudes helment dont move but the rest of the bike and body is every where SO FAKE
 
Actually, +David Daniels the rest of him isn't moving enough. The camera is mounted on his helmet, so the helmet won't move, but the rest is far too steady.
 
is the head even attached with the body ? makes me wonder if the rest is real or not !! there fore fake!!
 
+Ahsen Iqbal why do wonder if the head is attacked? have you never seen a helmet mounted camera?
 
Wow! Glad he shut oft the camera! I couldn't watch anymore and I'm not even afraid of heights! Just wow...
 
Are you mountain climbing in Alaska or somewhere else that is cold
Diane M
 
definitely fake!
 
need friends send me a friend reqest im cool
 
crazy thats all wow i would crap my pants
 
The young man is just bein himself driven by courage and doing what makes him cool
 
they left out the 15 takes in which he died ...................................................i know i know
 
The hunger games is beast
 
its fake everyone...most of the time Go-pro rattle around and r not very still...and his arms are animated
 
his head should be moving...............
 
if it was real it would be cool
 
that gopro camera
his head should not be moving..
 
His camera is probably in his helmet, if not, then it's fake
 
its fake becaues his head dosnt move. i mean i bet a real person would look side ways from time to time
 
he just worked hard on keeping his head still
 
what the hell is tht lol...
 
hey if its real thats pretty awesome. If not, well..........that sucks. =/
 
would love to see this through a wider lens so you can see more of the landscape
 
Also amazing how the head that the camera's mounted on never moves. Fake as fake gets :P
 
this guy is very crazy. i wish i can do that
xi khan
 
wow. that made my feet tingle The guy is a nutter!
 
Why does the helmet never move for the entire video?
 
one slip and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!

I've seen guys do the same on Mountain bicycles and even more scary stupid than this
 
Yes, Parker. He would definitely look sideways riding across a 3 feet ridge that requires the utmost caution and focus to do so.
 
I hate to break it to you guys but this guy isn't that out of the ordinary for a seasoned dirtbiker... And yes, this video is real...

If I lived in Colorado i would definitely ride this trail, as would any other dirtbiker I know. it's got one heck of a view, if given the chance to i would ride this trail in a heartbeat.

watch the HD version

driving on mountain top ORIGINAL!

I can't tell exactly what brand and size of dirtbike this is due to the custom colored panels he put on it, but my best guess would be a Honda CR 250 or maybe even a 500. It's a 2 stroke motorcycle. The audio sync's up too perfectly with the speed of the bike relative to what gear he's in relative to the slope of the hill.

There's no snow being kicked up because the front fender blocks it!!! also the rear wheel is the drive wheel meaning it puts the force on the ground. The snow/dirt gets shot out the back!

Also
You would know if you ride a dirtbike that you naturally keep your head still so you can see where you are going. that's why the camera is so still. You have to have strong neck muscles, to hold your head still on the bumps.

I can also tell you that this is a frequently ridden trail.

At 55 seconds into the video just as he hits the decent and there are breaking ruts/holes from lots of other riders riding the same terrain. I recognize the distinctive bounce and shaking motion. Also at 1:02 he bounces the entire way down the slope going through the breaking ruts. a trail has to be ridden very frequently for breaking ruts to appear.

More evidence that this is a often used trail is at 0, 20, and 23 seconds where there's a rut/deep groove from other riders that is deeper than the surrounding dirt, this causes the dirt to be lower which means the sun doesn't hit it at the same angle and doesn't melt as much snow. The deeper terrain is caused from the roughly 2 or so foot wide path that everyone rides on.

This is a regular trail yet a beautiful trail at that. it just happens to be covered in half melted snow.

What's this rider doing? He's riding in mostly straight lines, it just so happens that a deviation from the straight line would be very unpleasant, that's how almost every back country dirtbike trail is. It usually goes that if you mess up, you fall off a cliff.

If you have trouble riding a bicycle in a straight line than yes, I can see how to you, this is "insane/death defying/fake"

Sources: I started riding my bicycle at 2 years old and my dirtbike at 6. I've been riding ever since.

Welcome to the world of dirtbiking, Internet! It's where doing incredible feats is considered normal.

Edit:
Also please know I'm not trying to discredit the rider's abilities, i'm just stating that this isn't out of the ordinary for a dirtbiker.

oops hit some ice.
 
pretty well worn in trail (probably does this every day) bigdeal
 
very nice :D i would love to try this some time. i have ice balls lol
 
Did anybody else notice that when the bike was moving the helmet wasn't moving? No way in hell if you have ever rode a bike. IF and that's a big damn IF it is real. Stupid + Crazy + Young + Smart + Straightup and down GUTS! Equals this dude. He's out of his damn mind. LOL
 
+Shea Bennett Please read my post above, i give a detailed explanation to why it's real

Extreme is right! That's like a recurring nightmare I have, except I'm in a van and the bakes are going out. Okay, not exactly 'like'. heh
 
God, I love my motorcycle, but i was scared to death just watching that.... Lol
 
He's definitely not, read my above posts...
 
yes i do have balls 2 of them actually
 
Never giv this guy a drivers license he takes too many risks :) :):):):):):):):):):):):):

I doesn't look like his head is moving because the camera is attached to his helmet
 
one word:CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I don't swear but expletive deleted mother is riding an expletive deleted mountain ridge on an expletive deleted motorbike?
 
Don't see either in this case. I see a skilled biker who cautiously makes his way along a ridge. Skilled - but not taking any risks - No Balls.
 
That's why brave people aren't always the best
 
Its fake. if you noticed, the guy's head doesn't move at all
 
+Zuhayr Yakub , well of course, because the camera is attached to that helmet .. the relative movement between the camera and the helmet is 0
 
i almost expected something to go bad right away
 
probably a death wish..but looks super fun
 
check this out. wow this will make your butt cheeeeks tighten up LOL
 
WOW. I don't know what else to even say!
 
Looks like it's not his first rodeo on that ledge. Nice view though, the fisheye makes it look like he's on top of the world, lol.
 
What's life without risks? Dying in a household accident. Literally. As far as we know, we die only once (in spite of Bruce Willis.) I say, walk his way.
 
Wow... despite the obvious trail there, it get's pretty dang hairy there at points!
 
thats so fake his head is not even moving
 
Uttered€1Hhhhaaaawwww yo don't stop now
 
I think whoever did that is a bit of both,but the helmet thing is looking very fake. So I think whoever did this should get the credit.
 
This is nowhere near as crazy as it looks; notice how they specifically chose the kind of camera that bends the image best to make it look like the mountain is steeper than it is. Also notice that the guy is driving on a rut trail, meaning he's not the first person to have done this.
 
LOL XD Wow! I don't dirtbike, but that must be a thrill! The vid's obviously tricked up, though. That is unless the guy taped the camera to his fricken face...
 
+Justice Illidge www.gopro.com Not tricked up. Just has a mount attached to his helmet for the camera. EDIT: after watching twice, it's definitely fake. A good fake, but a fake none the less.
 
takeouts: splat.
take 2: splat.
take three: boom!
......
Take 158,345: I did it!
 
This would be true if his head had moved at least a couple of times during the ride. It looked like a good video game sequence.
 
that is a large hill in a badlands not a mountain but none the less ridiculous.
 
Man i wish more people would have been on G+ when I shared this

omg!!! If I tried that i would probs fall off the edge and die!!
 
I feel like when i go off a jump its nothing compared to you!!!
 
Sheer insanity trying that out but very well done! Hard to believe that isn't edited or anything but really cool.
 
brave or insane? it's COOL !!
 
That's just fan-fucking-tastic if you ask me. I want more. I need to see more!
 
I can vouch for the comments made by +david mixon and +Ryan Stevens. I grew up in Grand Junction, CO. People ride those ridges all the time; did you notice the big rut he's riding in? The wide angle of the GoPro makes it look scarier that it really is. Don't get me wrong; this guy is a good rider, but it's not some over the top insane ride. Google "book cliffs grand junction" and you will see what these ridges look like from different points of view.
 
dam!!!! hes got a good pair of them did u see how high that was dam!!!!!!
 
+John Pabst Jr. These comments lead me to believe that nobody has ever seen an extreme sport before in their lives... Their reactions are make it seem like this regular old dirt bike rider is some dirt biking god...

I wish my simple mountain biking videos could get the views like this guys random head cam video...

I guess you just need a flashy title and a widely followed promoter to get your random head cam video to the front page of a social network...
 
omg he got more bulls than me !! how did he get up there ??
 
this doesn't look real. I ride a mountain bike/150cc scooter; no snow is flying around anywhere.
 
Someone tell me this aint real right??....
 
This guy Gorpo McMahan is crazy but its so awesome!!!
 
Sure ... this is not real... the camera is fixed and not shaky !
 
This is how I feel at work most the time!
 
I would definitely try this at home. But not up there. I'm not that suicidal yet.
 
NICE.....................Hands off

FAKE ART......... THIS WAS VIDEO EDIT ANIMAITON DONE BY A GUY I KNOW
 
It's deffo an animation overlaid the video. You can even see the pixelisation on the character. Plus, the head stays way too still to be anything other than a fixed camera. I know it's on the side of the helmet, but the helmet itself is too still.
 
this is like Trials Evolution on xbox 360, except he didn't catch lots of air.
 
i think his talented riding on the mountain takes alot of guts
 
i am 600 th to like this,keep posting videos like this
 
I was like.."woh (pift to da right..then to da lft)..ho sh**t..(felt myself pulling back as he got to the top)..oh sh8t..wo wo wo!!"..LOL!! Real or fake..dis was cooool! Actually, I felt like I was really ridn on a mountain...(then had to watch it again..lol). Thank God I don't got balls for this 1!! LMAO!!
 
He's a fool who's gambling with his life: therefore, he is legendary. My kinda guy :P
 
I will now put this ride on my bucket list, right at the end of the list though.
BAG GAB
 
Mountain biked similar terrain during my time in Colorado.

Thanks +david mixon for filling us in on the terrain details. Yes the fisheye distorts the perspective and the snow cover gives the sense of a wild ride. I noticed that the front tire was getting good traction; so, even though their up against the edge, it's not as hairy as it seems.
 
Amazing and no thanks. I can't afford those kind of chances. No damsel in distress at the peak either.
 
woowwwww its amazing n most dreamyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
 
no room for a single false maneuver...wow...
 
My mouth is still hanging open...and that's absolutely crazy
 
holy crap ummmmmm that takes balls
 
im glad he stopped film at the point he did turn around i take it,coz there wasnt anyway down on that route,
 
Its real, for those who say its not first get a real computer with a real monitor... tire moves does have snow in tread "when in snow", cam is probably a gopro mounted to his helmet an will move exactly like that. youtube gopro an watch a million other bike riding videos as such.. great ride, great rider... don't hate because you don't have the balls to try or skill.
 
this guy as some serious balls. O.o

Almost as annoying as meeting a skidoo in the back country.
 
I would so love to do that!
 
This is so fake!,,, helmet doesn't even move at all. Only shows the handle bars and ground pattern is repeating.
 
Was that all? I expect more death defying antics....
 
+Beth Milbrandt It's not fake I'm afraid. He is using a GoPro camera, which is very small, and can attach to a helmet. The reason the helmet never moves is because the camera is attached to that helmet. The handlebars moving and the ground repeating is because he is riding on that ridge. Movement forward across rough terrain causes handlebars and ground to move accordingly.

Just thought you wanted to know.

Very nice post though, Mike! I hadn't seen this one yet!
 
He's definitely INSANE or totally stupid!
 
You made my heart pumping...and I love it....Great Ride!
 
I think he's insane, but my husband loved it and said he would do it!
