Treacherous Motorcycle Tricks
There are many things that set motorcycles apart from cars and other automobiles. The increased maneuverability of motorcycles means they can potentially be used for a variety of stunts. While motorcycle tricks can be entertaining to behold and are the focal point of some competitive motorcycle-based events, they are also incredibly dangerous for riders and nearby pedestrians alike.
Motorcyclists often ride together, which may leave you vulnerable to the reckless riding of another person. If you are hurt in a crash that is caused by another rider’s negligence, it may be appropriate to consider filing a civil claim. A successful legal action might grant you financial compensation for your injuries, motorcycle repairs, and other damages as befitting the circumstances of your crash.

There are a variety of stunts or tricks that can be performed on a motorcycle. Some of the more frequently attempted tricks include:
- Seat stands – in which the rider stands on the bike seat
- Wheelie – riding on the rear wheel of the bike
- Stoppies – in which the rider brings a bike to a stop on the front wheel with the rear in the air
- Jumps – typically over or off of a curb
The decision to attempt to perform motorcycle tricks on open streets and roadways is made even more confounding when one considers the degree of danger that accompanies even the most basic motorcycle riding. The lack of an enclosed and protected cabin means that a motorcyclist is virtually guaranteed to have a forceful collision with the road surface and any other objects present in the event of a crash.
