A Backflip Is a Pretty Cool Way to Park a Motorcycle

Casually landing a bike in a pickup bed is like cannon-balling into a kiddie pool.


We would never call a backflip on a motorbike easy, but it is well-trod territory. A backflip into the bed of a Ford F-250? Well done, monsieur, bravo. With the studied nonchalance all top athletes must have, 27 year-old stunt rider Jack Field guns the throttle on his Yamaha, backflipping the bike and landing perfectly within the bed of the truck, without an inch to spare. Among other instances of off-duty motorized shenanigans—folks jumping jalopies and pitting lifted pick-up trucks against one another in a game of tug-o-war—this perfectly executed trick is downright elegant.
