    Need for speed

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Guy on motorcycle is trying to die. But there are quicker and easier ways of commiting suicide.

    I am one of those guys....

    If you are not, there is no way you can understand. There is actually a "Need for speed", or at least a need for adrenlin that is common in more people than you may think. Most of my friends. I've broken 63 bones over the years doing everything from whitewater rafting to motorcycle racing, have been over 200 MPH in a car, and over 180 on a bike. I had a dirt bike that would top out at just a nick under 120 on pavement. Everone around here thinks I'm crazy too, but I can accept that. My brother and I raced trucks/buggys off road, won a championship in the CORR series and a 2nd in the WSORR series. I broke my back in a buggy in a practice accident, ended that for me but I still ran enduro for a few years.

    That guy can ride a bike, him and I would probably get along just fine.

    Ha! That's too cool. I know Jim Guthrie, the driver of the car. His body shop (Car Crafters) was next door to our band's warehouse back in the '80s. They even did some body work for me after a run-in with an 800 pound steer in a Bronco II at 70 MPH.

    I knew I was doing something wrong when the ground was above me.....

    That video you posted, now that scares the stuff out of me. I have an illogical fear of water. I actually went out to raft the Grand Canyon to get rid of my fear of water, and I broke my leg.......

    Still have a fear of water.
