Fun? I just don't see how taking such a stupid risk with your life can be fun. Then again, I've never been in the circus either.

Difference between all that you mentioned and what this guy is doing, is he has no seat belt, safety harness, or parachute. He is free balling it.

Ehh...at 140+ in a normal car or on a bike, seatbelts airbags and helmets don't help much other than helping you feel better, lol

Admittedly hit high speeds behind the wheel but it was very rare and I did have some protection and a chance of survival. Not even a slight chance with what these guys do.

Here's how I see it. These guys are circus performers and they do stuff like this professionally. The risk they are taking is much smaller than the risk one would be taking if they are just some guy that does pullups a couple times a week.

A stunt driver/race car driver/etc driving at really high speeds isn't taking the same risk you would be taking since you "very rarely" drive at those speeds.

They do their own camera work, whichever one isn't hanging/climbing is filming
