The Arto of the im­pos­si­ble

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - PS World -

If you’ve never seen Arto Nyquist you’re miss­ing out. And if you have, it won’t hurt to re­mind your­self just what a ti­tan of trick-rid­ing he was. The diminu­tive Finn was a stunt sen­sa­tion in the 1980s on a Kawasaki Z1300 of all things. Here he is at a win­try Santa Pod, in his shell suit, bust­ing ridicu­lous stuff on his big, fat 13.

The clip was on an ITV show called Just Amaz­ing, hosts Barry Sheene and Kenny Lynch add ‘com­men­tary’ that doesn’t add any­thing at all, while Arto’s skills do all the talk­ing nec­es­sary. Go to your View Tub­ing ap­pli­ca­tion and bash in Arto Nyquist.

Su­per, smash­ing, great
