"Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."
How those with connections to the top 1% play.
I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.
I've gone skydiving a few times from a plane at pit meadow airport but it's nothing compared to diving from a chopper or a hot air balloon.............and diving with a jet pack on your is just next level.
As far as adrenaline rush goes think skydiving takes the prize hands down over biking... But it's a quick rush, where as riding is fun and can last a whole day. Ok maybe not a whole day, just till your ass get sore. ;-)
Fuckkkkkk, I think this has been inspired by Felix Baumgartner's jet wing.
Also, I've always wanted one of these but current canadian Ultralight laws don't allow helicopters

I've skydived well over 2000 times, have over 24 hours of freefall, and have made quite a few base jumps. Very quickly the sport (skydiving) becomes a performance issue and not really a huge adrenalin rush. It is very picturesque and gives fantastic mind candy to reflect upon. Camaraderie is nice. CRW, RW, head down flying - swoop landings - lots of fun to be had. Quite calm. Performance anxiety (not for just yourself, but the group) is actually quite exquisite and pulling something good off is a real great feeling.
Jumping out of a plane is always preferable as far skydiving is concerned. With significant forward speed you are able to fly immediately (and executing the jump plan) upon exiting. If your group is good you can pull off a couple formations before you are even falling straight down by using the forward speed. Helicopters are ok as long as forward speed is up. Balloon's are a novelty. As are gliders and hang gliders, all of which I've jumped from.
Base jumps vary a lot as far as adrenalin goes. High ones in good conditions are just a blast, pure fun. Low ones in tight locals are plain scary. I called real scary ones "muscle jumps". Plenty of adrenalin and relief when it goes good. Unfortunately I didn't get to explore wing suit jumping - that would be quite amazing.
I was lucky enough to make about 50 jumps with these guys in a international relations program the us army had for a few years (aka go to Canada and party hard). Lucky bastards make over 1000 jumps per year doing Army work.
Big ways are very visual:
Big CRW is very visual too:
Base jumped this antenna a couple times. Nice EZ fun one except for the climb up:
One thing I do know: Of all those motorcycling is by far the most dangerous.
