Some layers of Kevlar and a helmet, there is nothing more to give you protection while you attempt this sport. Third-degree abrasions, broken bones, etc, are small examples of accidents that have occurred due to motorcycle racing.


4.Bull Riding:

One of the 10 dangerous sports in the world. This is another sport and again you are on the gunpoint. You can get cramps and can break your bones if you fall from the bull. But, getting adventurous is the main idea here.

There are many people who don't consider it as a sport. After all, beautiful girls with cute little dresses can be fun. What's the risk in it, right? However, have you ever imagined if any of the girls misses her part while swirling in the air and catching, what could happen?
