The internet is a veritable treasure trove of motorbike stunts, with a variety of professional and home-made efforts dotted all over YouTube. We sorted through all this to bring you five of the most impressive ones.

There are a huge number available and sorting through them was a real challenge, as a result these videos are a broad spectrum of the stunts available and all demonstrate a different style of stunt riding - from daredevil jumps to skilled wheelies.

1 - BMW Motorcycle Stunt Team

Taking place at Miller Motorsports Park World this video features a variety of different bikes such as the BMW Motorrad S1000RR, F800R and even a F800GS with bags attached - the rider still managing to do wheelies on it.

Packing a huge amount into its nine minutes, this video is a real demonstration of skilful stunt riding and BMW bikes.

2 - Motorbike drifting with Jorian Ponomareff

A very different video this one, as popular French stunt rider Jorian Ponomareff demonstrates his ability to drift a bike around a tight circuit.

Set on a traffic-cone course he swerves in an out of them, performing impressive figure of eights before getting into a contest with a two-footed-scooter rider. A mixture of impressive skills, great shots and humour make this one of the best videos out there.

3 - 'Ride of the century' bikers insane street bike stunts

In this video a huge convoy of more than 2,000 stunt bike riders take to the highways of Saint Louis, Missouri to show off their skills, performing stunning stunts at high speeds on typical roads - with impressive results.

4 - The greatest motorcycle daredevil? Robbie Maddison's best stunts compilation

Forget Evel Knievel, Robie Maddison is the king of extreme stunt jumps - breaking the record for the world's longest motorcycle jump in 2007.

This video shows off some of his most impressive feats including jumping onto the Arc de Triomphe and breaking the world record for an American football pitch jump.

5 - Motorbike Tightrope stunts

You've probably seen people walking between mountains on thin wire, it looks pretty impressive. At least it did until now, as a man has done the same thing but on a motorbike.

The motorbike itself is attached to a hanging basket that allows people to sit in or, as happens in the video, perform some insane stunts that really have to be seen to be believed.

And finally... - Motorcycle fails

We couldn't do a feature on the best motorcycle stunts without featuring a compilation of what happens when things don't go to plan.

This video features some of the best clips of motorcycle stunts going wrong - some funny, some wince-inducing and some that will probably have you shaking your head shocked at how stupid people can be.
