The team at MotorbikeTimes headquarters could not believe our eyes.

A young man supposedly from America, who calls himself Ben Dover on his Youtube account, has created a motorbike rope swing.

The idea is as simple as it is hilarious, not to mention dangerous. His bike is suspended from a tree by two ropes and he uses the back wheel's drive to generate the swinging motion.

In the clip he builds up more and more air, while a nearby stream looks ominously like it could be his final resting place.

The video lasts just under two minutes and has already proven to be extremely popular, with over 70,000 views on Youtube.

If you love this video as much as we do, help us make it go viral.
