Dirt bikes over Burj Al Arab

Perspective is a funny thing, ain’t it? At 1,053 feet tall, clearing Dubai’s Burj Al Arab — the second tallest hotel in the world — would be an enormous feat. Jumping in front of it? Not so much.

    Am I the only one that doesn’t really get the point of this? I feel like anyone with photoshop could superimpose a FMX rider over, lets say, the moon and get the same emotional response.

    I stayed there for a week in 2007. Just getting a tour of the lobby cost something like $7.00, I am thankful I didn’t have to pay for the room.

    Lots of dirty little 250′s in Dubai. You’re really taking your life into your hands street riding there. Cagers are insane.

      So how is that different from any other big American city ?

        I’m looking out my window, I see no 250′s.

        I think he’s referring to the ‘cagers’
