LOOK MA, NO HANDS!
That’s not at all what I meant when I said “hands-free.”
I blame myself. Kirk is a nice guy, but not a lot going on up top if you know what I mean. When I told him that he could film his ride hands-free, I was talking about my new Swann Freestyle HD Action Cam, not the bike. I had just gotten it mounted to his helmet when he took off, peddling like a mad man and screaming like a banshee with his arms all flailing about.
He’s not exactly the look-before-you-leap kinda guy. And thank God for that, because at least the utter horror of shooting right off the sheer face of that rocky cliff didn’t have time to register. I’m sure him yelling “GER-ON-I-MOOOO” was purely coincidence. At least that’s what I’m telling myself so I can sleep at night.
I do have to admit that, for a split second, I was kinda bummed at the thought of losing that camera. I know, I know! Why would that even cross my mind when my best friend just plunged 100 feet into the water below? But turns out it’s waterproof up to 65 feet, so it was all good.
Even better was the 1080p HD footage of him soaring through the air. Check it out. I’m watching the playback on the detachable 1.5” LCD screen right now. And we’ve already got 15 hits on YouTube. I think it’s gonna be a web sensation. God bless that dim-witted daredevil, may he rest in peace.
Oh no, he’s not dead. He’s just exhausted after the whole ordeal. He had so much fun that he hauled his bike back up the mountain and jumped 20 more times. What can I say? The man’s a BEAST! A fearless, thick-headed beast.
