THERE ARE OLD RIDERS, AND THERE ARE BOLD RIDERS, BUT THERE ARE DAMN FEW OLD AND BOLD RIDERS.

Looking at the amount of heat the burner produces, and the close proximity to the rider, he's pretty gutsy!
The skateboard has him sitting on the burner which is mounted above the fuel.   :eek
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

... he doesn't fry 'em.

By his actions, he is what I would term as a temporary american, but by his age, he's proved me wrong.  Either way, very foolish actions and even more foolish posting videos of these exploits which is only gunna lead to others attempting to follow, some not as lucky.

Motorcycling - the best time you can have with your pants on.

Afterlife - up there for the climate, down there for the company.

If I'd known that I was gunna live this long, I woulda looked after myself better.

I read somewhere that if you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room.   Robert Maddox appears quite eccentric, is having lots of fun, and is so close the the edge he's in danger of falling off.    ++   :rofl   Good on Him, I say.
