Seems like nowadays, any activity pursued by two or more people gets labeled as a “sport,” and everyday we see new activities and hardware added to the mix. Stunt riding is just such an activity. Professional riders have taken elements that are widely regarded as dangerous and unnecessary on the road, and moved them to a closed-circuit, or otherwise controlled environment, where they belong. These intrepid riders have taken raw shenanigannery and honed it to an art form all its own. Now usually, stunt bikes are relatively stock machines with customized additions such as extra footpegs, engine guards (for obvious reasons) and unique features such as a 12- o’clock bar for some of the more extreme (read: vertical) maneuvers. However, since they aren’t purpose-built in a factory, bike-building ability is part of the overall skillset for the sport.
