And it just made me think of my post about 80/20 vs. 1000/100, where I speculated that by focusing intensely on one thing, you can achieve phenomenal results.  Jason is a shining example of that - he does things on a motorcycle that just continue to freak you out, even after he lands his tricks successfully time after time.  In fact, he didn't wipe out once in the 15 minutes we watched him.
