Just to let you guys know if Saturnin was here on his 900 he would be the number #1 stunter. I havenīt seen many bikes bigger than a 125cc China built knock off. Iīm starting to really want to ride one because itīs better than nothing.
The vehicle they described as a quad that Iīm stunt doubling Jack Black on is far from being a quad. Itīs a bicycle tail single wheel connected to brigs 6hp engine with a cart in the front with 2 wheels. Like a reverse 3 wheeler.
It handles like a car backing up a trailer at 50 kmh. So far in practice while sliding it sides with a guy in the front .Weīve flattened 2 tires ,shattered a hub, blew a brake master cylinder and knocked off all the mexician crap the arts department put on it. Iīve spent the last week cutting and welding it to try and make it handle a little better and not flip on itīs side above 5kmh. Everyone who has jumped on it flipped it in 20 feet.
I have gained a little more respect for the stunt guys who do high dives, not much Gasman but a little. Iīm suppose to dive off a 19 meter cliff landing slightly on my back (they want a big splash) into which is basically a duck pond 4 M deep.The original stunt guy broke his ribs practicing. We did 4 dives and it feels like a sledge hammer between the shoulder blades knocking the wind out of you everytime. Itīs a good thing the safety diver is a huge 6'6 mexican and is right there pulling you to the surface if needed.
The real stunt people here are the mexicain daily drivers, there nuts all of them. If it wasnīt for the massive speed bumps every 100 yards and the potholes I think these people would have the worldīs largest demolition derby.
