The Do Not Try This At Home folder is a constantly expanding trove of items that you really shouldn't attempt. We have a new one to add, and it involves a bout of two-wheeled lunacy, a racetrack and a rider's head. Said head probably lacks the internal jelly responsible for keeping his body parts intact, which is why the rider behind was able to capture the following clip.

You've heard about scraping pegs? This person decided to test the limits of adhesion by scraping his helmet. Click past the jump to check it out.

      He's on such a lean angle from the weight of his massive balls.

      HOLY SH***. That requires a great deal of COJONES.

      He better hope he doesn't end up hitting a chunk of rubber while doing this and end up snapping his neck...

        The only bits of rubber are going to be on the outside of the turn.

      It looks like the backed turn at Chuckwalla Raceway to me. Any other ideas?

      Notice how the lean angle of the bike remains the same? I hope some newbie doesnt go and try this by leaning the bike even more in the turn.

      Thats pretty impressive, I'm give him credit for that. He will have to scrape his balls down the track for a standing ovation.

      I'm surprised he can stay on the saddle with balls that huge!

      Not really impressed by this.The leg is still being used for support which the rider clearly has perfected. All this trick is, if you can call it that, was flex the neck in a way to touch their helmet onto the road.

        knee dragging in itself is hard. I know a lot of people that knee drag but they bend their leg's out so far from the bike that their lean angle isn't even that great (compared to this rider). Anyone "could" do this with enough practice. Hell I could shoot a bullseye at 1000 yards with enough practice. I could beat Michael Jordan in a game of horse, with enough practice... But this guy has practiced and perfected this. He is the best at this. Just like when you watch a baseball player hit a homerun, you're watching the best at that sport. This is some of the best talent at this sport and it's extremely entertaining (to me). Congrats, well done!

      I wonder if the critics have ever even tried this or knee dragging. I used to race motorcycles and still ride to this day. From my personal up-close-and-in-the-action experience, I can appreciate this display of riding skills and stability. It does not make you go faster, but the rider is truly in tune with the machine to be able to do this. That requires a rather high degree of skills and experience. But, of course, people will show negativity toward stuff they don't know anything about. No, riding your Harley 3 times a year doesn't qualify you.

        In what way is it stupid? Do you feel that this is a novice's trick that wasted 34 seconds of your time. Is it stupid that he could of wiped out and snapped his neck, as if its any concern of yours. Is being on a motorcycle stupid. Is this something you would never do. If you are going to be cynical about something at least indicate why and not just say, 'probably the stupidest thing ive seen.'
