The Arto of the impossible
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
