You should be seeing a video - anyone else not seeing it?

Guess tictok vids don't post on the forum.

I don't do tictok, so no idea how their vids are done.

Edit: Hmm, I copied this post into Opera (normally use Chrome) and it showed up there.

Seems to be a decent rider and the bike takes some abuse for sure.
Too bad they are trashing a seemingly good wing.
But whatever to get clicks I guess.

I normally use chrome too but I do have Firefox so I tried that.
Yes, the link comes through in Firefox. I'm sorry it worked. I hate seeing a perfectly good machine being trashed. I guess I am old school and have too much respect for finely made machinery.

Very odd...I too use Chrome, and it shows up fine for me. Also tried Firefox, Edge and my Android phone, and it shows up in all of them.

It worked fine for me, but there was quite a delay before that part of the page rendered.

Reminds me of that other MX Wings video from Honduras AIR?

Works fine on Brave browser (Chrome without the Google tie ins).

That guy did a whole lot more dabbing than I would do on a machine that size with saddlebags waiting to snap your leg like a twig.

For those not seeing it. He said you don't see it every day,,,,lol.

Actually. I'm impressed with the guy riding the bike. There's another video, maybe same guy, that has 2 Goldwings motor crossing. They tear the crap out of them. But they kept going.
