My fear of heights must be getting worse just watching that makes me feel sick. :(

Stunning footage and a good advert for Go Pro. However there were clearly car tracks up there - that would be really no margin for error.

Might have a negative effect, as slower wheels provide less stability ;-)

I think riding along those two animal/people walking tracks (not roads) requires a measure of insanity that I don't have (yet).

Might also be that them folks are just plain ignorant/dumb towards the possible danger...

Life ain't a jack-ass movie... there is pain and bones take long to heal...
