California (where else?).

MORENO VALLEY (CBSLA.com) ? A dirt bike flies over the 60 Freeway in Riverside County. It?s a mind-boggling stunt that would make anyone do a double take.

Before launching over the freeway, the rider can be seen accelerating up a dirt path carved from a hillside and then liftoff.

There?s plenty of traffic below. The stunning video shot from the air and ground was posted on Kyle Katsandris? Instagram account, along with a YouTube channel, which features several other clips of Katsandris doing stunts and tricks on his bike.

For those who make a habit of using the 60 Freeway in Moreno Valley near the spot of the stunt, there is disbelief anyone would attempt something like this.

Video at the link.

See (33.946950, -117.063450). Jump was north to south.

Not to minimize the difficulty, but the freeway is just 60ft wide at that spot, with natural launch and landing ramps. Well executed, but well planned and prepared, too. And great video. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erLT7I7lliU.

It would have been more impressive if he had done a back flip or something while he was flying over.

The fact that there was a freeway under him had almost nothing to do with the danger of the stunt. With enough speed up the ramp, the only hard part is landing it, and he had a huge landing area.

Not that I could pull off something like that or anything.

So it appears that this rider attempted to do something similiar in Simi Valley (Ventura county, CA), and this time did not make it.
