Yamaha Rider Rides Auckland Sky Tower

You can only get so much nope in one video, yet somehow Japanese MX rider Taka Higashino managed to tick most of the 'no thanks' boxes.

Higashino, riding a Yamaha YZ250F, completed two laps of the sky bridge outside of the Southern Hemisphere's tallest structure.

While he initially planned to pop a wheelie during the ride this morning (21st November) strong winds reportedly put paid to that plan and he had to settle for being the first person to ever ride the outside of the Sky Tower.

The stunt was a promotional move for the Auckland S-X Open at Mt Smart this weekend, a supercross event which sees international riders come to New Zealand to compete in the country's biggest ever supercross event.
