    Topic Closed because its just one question.

    Yes, Stunting is legal, PROVIDED that the following conditions are met:

    1. The stunts should be done with Proper Safety Gears, including but not limited to a high quality ISI/ ECE/ DOT Helmet, Riding jacket/ suit, Gloves, Shoes, etc.

    2. The stunts should be performed at remote locations/ areas, and NOT public roads at all. Other traffic shouldn't be affected by it at all.

    3. Stunts should not be that extreme, that it has less chances of survival, and more of disability/ death, etc. You can't jump parachute-less from a mountain with a bike, just because you're wearing riding gears. ok?


    Various stunts, including non-bike stunts are performed by Circus Jokers, Film Stuntmen, etc. But safety is a must. Even TV show MTV Stuntmania shows stuntmen stunting on bikes, so its definitely legal.

    People's perception of the law is always a problem though. So, even your License is NOT required for stunting in off road/ remote location, but still, keeping the license with you will help if you run in any trouble.

    Topic re-opened on Anik's request.

    I already mentioned that Stunting is legal, and that people's perception is a bigger problem than the law. What else would you want to discuss, Anik?

    I'm not exactly aware that by which act is it legal, but can't you argue that MTV Stuntmania is legal, and so are Circus shows?

    It is actually considered under rash driving if talking about bike stunts, rest stunts like XXX movie (Vin Diesel one ) it is considered under attempt of suicide.

    I'm guessing it's legal because back in 2015 when we visited the Naval base, they had organized a stunt show for the viewers.
