In an age where sport bike stunt rider exhibitions are everywhere I sometimes think Joe Public doesn't truly appreciate what the Seattle Cossacks do. Now that I've been hanging around their shows on a more regular basis I've noticed i's not uncommon for someone to come out of a show bleeding.

 It's not a risk free hobby. Now consider that most restored bikes of this vintage are either in museums or are treated like they are by their owners. These bikes get ridden rain or sunshine. Keeping a 75 year old motorcycle in running reliably is not always a trivial feat. It's crazy to think some of these bikes have been on the team for multiple generations. Do check them out if you ever have the chance.

Thank's John! That's the "Oh Shit" things are about to go bad look on my face! None of us got hurt on that stunt though!
