I'd say that was a safe idea, also no more wheelie/backflips/cartwheels on the mower, leave that to the professionals like MobileMarine!

It was fun though. You should've seen that mid air dismount, and the shove that tilted it just that one little bit to get it to fall wheels down. And because it's one of those big commercial mowers, the levers stayed slightly forward so it kept going. I jumped on to stop it, then said "hell with it" and took a seat.

And I didn't even drop my shades

Well, the backflip on the mower w be certain to win Americas funniest videos which is a pretty good payday. Although, they might ask how you came up w such a dangerous & foolish stunt ?

That's the smell of pure awesome. Don't confuse it with the horsepuckey.

But I suddenly have this urge to try bull riding...

Try roping, its safer, but still retains a certain amount of pure awesomeness.

My step Dad was a really good team roper (heeler). He was good enough that he was actually denied access to some rodeos in Oklahoma back in the 80's.

Never thought there'd be a day I would utter the words " no, there's more guns left, I just don't want to shoot them ."

i rode a bull once, when i was about 14 or 15 in a junior rodeo. first and last time i ever did that! i think i lasted about two seconds if that long before being thrown off and knocked out! i thought i wanted to be a bullrider, but found out that for me, it's much better for me to be a spectator, not a participant!

i still love watching bullriding at the rodeo and watching team roping is something else that pure enjoyment to watch.
