Kevin Gallas Goes Where No Rider Has Gone Before

I lost track of how many times I yelled “Dear god!” and other things I can’t write while watching this eight-minute clip of Kevin Gallas. With his Yamaha Tenere 700, Kevin rides where no man has gone before. Well, almost. There are the stunning nature shots, and other places ADV bikes are made for, but not down subway stairs or over a damn dam.

In the clip below, the 21-year-old 2018 World Junior SuperEnduro Champion puts us behind the handlebars and takes us through Touratech Germany, then out into the streets of Europe. His kleptomania and illegal lines happen so fast, onlookers don’t even know what just happened.

One thing is certain: if you’re pulling these stunts, you gotta know how to crash. And Kevin Gallas knows how to crash.

Watch to the end to literally feel some of those outtake wipeouts shockwave throughout your body.
