Alright, so who just happens to drive down the road with a video camera rolling just looking for opportunities like this to take place? I don't get that part of this. However, in response to the incident, that was pretty spectacular!!

In Russia and other Eastern countries, it is very common practice to have video cameras mounted in your car, to provide evidence to defend against corrupt police and people who intentionally cause accidents.

WOW. I had no idea. It makes sense but crazy. Not to mention catching the errant motorcycle stunt riders performing one of their crazy car surfing maneuvers. :lol:

I read sort of the same thing about car mounted cameras. Apparently, a lot of folks have cameras because of scammers faking accidents to get money or something like that.. so folks have resorted to using cameras as a form of defense against these con artists...

As to the video, it was amazing the guy riding the bike was able to land on the car without injury. Or at least it looked like he did. I guess it could be a hoax, but it looks real. Real scary to me...
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.
