Idk if this is real or not....but ummm. I didn't even know what to title this as either.

brotocross rules- http://brotocross.com/

Um, is hell fucking yeah an acceptable response? The instant that I saw that this was a stunt on a film set, I knew we were in for a treat. I have very limited experience with actual movie types, but I have learned that they have no fucking idea what is possible and what isn’t on a motorcycle. That line is so askew for them, it’s ridiculous; take your hand off the bars in a wheelie and you are Jesus, but if you can’t clear a semi truck from a ramp made of a piece of paper and a 2×4, you’re fired. And that’s the thing, these stunt guys are so desperate for work, they pretty much cannot say no. They are just yes men who then actually have to pay for it. The director was all “Listen, we’re going to need you to launch into this huge fucking lake, and you have to go at least 50 feet in the air and you will be smashing through solid boards of Alaskan pine when you hit the ramp. But don’t worry, you’ll be on fire.”

http://mycommunitysource.com/top-stories/millstone-stuntman-performs-dangerous-stunt-and-gets-more-than-he-bargains-for/

Crazy Mike didn’t care if he had to travel cross-country to get a job because he loved his work. From modeling to production to stunt work, Crazy Mike did it all. Though his last job in Hollywood would have been a big break for him, it has now left him unable to work and may end his career.

At 25 years of age, Mike Gaboff held the world in his hands. From a young age, he loved to entertain people with his unique personality. As he got older, he incorporated tricks until he took this passion to stunt work in Hollywood.

On April 21, Crazy Mike attempted a motorcycle stunt for Break Media that involved Sony Production. After a miscalculation, he overshot a lake at a height of six stories and landed tough; pounding the asphalt at a high speed.

After a four-day struggle for his life, family and friends took a deep breath when the news came that he would survive. Mike’s injuries range from a broken neck and back, two broken arms, a broken pelvis, ribs, sternum, second-degree burns, and, needless to say, a broken heart. At this time, he still sits in the Arrowhead Medical Center in Colton, California. Disturbing information came to the family that the production companies have denied workman’s compensation.

Mike’s family lives in Millstone Township and is in urgent need to have him return to New Jersey to continue his healing process. At this time, the family is awaiting admissions to any facility in New Jersey to take him. There is Medicaid pending at this time. If Mike is lucky enough to have a facility take him in, then a medical transport must be arranged. These types of transports run thousands of dollars. The family has continued to travel to stay by his side. Mike’s parents are both self-employed and must return New Jersey to continue to manage things. Because it will be a long road to recovery, Mike and his family are asking for your help.

There are several ways to help. Anyone interested in helping with Mike’s recovery can contact adoptapetinc1@aol.com and make a non-tax-deductible gift to the Gaboff family at Brunswick Bank & Trust in Freehold or by mail to P.O. Box 6384, Freehold, NJ 07728. The family is in the process of planning fundraisers at Applebees of Manalapan and TGI Fridays of Freehold in the beginning of June. The first fundraiser will be a pancake breakfast to be held on Saturday June 16 at Applebee’s in Manalapan

These shoots have to be insured don't they, who would have okay that stunt? It said it was by Sony production so you would have to think it was insured.

Ramp with an angle like that about 15 feet away from the waters edge? I hate to say it but this guy should have known better than to pin 3rd or 4th gear off of it.

I just wonder why he stopped rolling up the windows and let his body go limp way before he landed. Seems his hands were coming off the grip as he was leaving the ramp also. I don't have good enough equipment to really see it frame by frame. Just looks odd. Hope dude lives through it.Pretty crazy if it was a real stunt.Not very well thought out IMHO.

I did once. I was a kid, probably 12 or 13 riding in some sand dunes near my neighborhood on my XR80. I lost my bearing since the sand all looked the same and went to jump a little sand rise which turned out to be at the edge of a drainage canal that ran through the area. I splashed down the bank into in the water and swam my way to the edge without much trouble. I was wearing the old Bell Moto3, hi point boots, jersey, gloves and jeans. My brother and his friend helped pull my bike out and tow it home.
