The conversations of life

There’s bogans – and then there’s dumb and dumber


A camera has captured a trail bike rider jumping for his life – as he illegally walked his bike along rail tracks in country Victoria.

The incredible footage, filmed from the driver’s cab of the train last month, was taken near Ballan, north-west of Melbourne, and shows the moment the driver spots the man and rushes to put the brakes on the 160km/h train.

The video has now been released as police hunt for ‘dumber’ to charge him over the incident.

See what happened to him – and the bike – here.
