Aaron Colton stunts Chicago

I’ve only been to Chicago once, so landmarks like Upper Wacker drive don’t mean much to me, but it’s still exciting to see 19-year old Aaron Colton stunting his CBR600RR through a slick urban landscape. With the streets closed off by cops, it’s hard not to think of what you see here as a video game or a Hollywood action flick, but this is a real rider on a real bike on real roads, tearing it up.

    You sir, need to watch the Blues Brothers one more time.

      Is that the one where they’re doing 120 on the multi level highway? I love that scene.

        Yes. Although I think that scene starts out on the Lower Wacker where it’s really dark. Either way, if you can’t remember the epic chase at the end of the movie, you owe it yourself to watch it again. My favourite movie.

    A good place to be for a 19 year old…

    I feel like the stunting scene would be 100x better if there a myriad of street-legal trials bikes. A man can dream. RIP Honda Reflex.

      Agreed, but I think a 250cc Sumo is as close as we are going to get.

    I am consistently underwhelmed by stunting, by I have to say that power slides on motorcycles are f-ing awesome.
