If you’re afraid of heights, you might not want to watch this video of Adam Riemann ride his motorcycle along a high and narrow Himalayan trail carved from the sheer face of a cliff that plunges hundreds of feet straight down to a raging river.

About The Author

Just get outside and do something. Start there. If you're already passionate about one thing, great -- start doing more things you haven't done before. Use the seasons as a guide -- winter sports in winter, bikes and motorcycles in spring, fish, camp, backpack, hike, climb, paddle in summer, hunt in the fall -- you get the idea. More kinds of experiences, not just one again and again. You'll be surprised at what you can do, what you never thought you would like, and you'll appreciate your world more than ever before. Heck, you'll be a better person -- part of Earth instead of just on it. To get a hold of me, take a "firstnamelastname" guess at WickedCoolBite.com.
