Fans go behind the scenes with freestyle moto-x demon

CRUSTY Demons figurehead and freestyle motocross pioneer Seth Enslow visited The Rocky Glen Hotel last night to share behind-the-scenes footage and truths about what happened on the days of some of the biggest jumps and crashes in his career.

"I am also going to play some acoustic guitar and sing a few songs," he said.

Some people may have been surprised to hear there would be a few country songs thrown in, but for Seth it's all about the lyrics.

Enslow said Bon Jovi's song Wanted Dead Or Alive was one he enjoyed performing, not only because most people knew it but due to the lyric, "I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride''.

Opening last night's show was Enslow's friend Zed and his band Royal Artillery.

"I met Zed a few years back when his band played at a shop signing on the Goldie," he said.

"The following year we joined forces again in Coffs Harbour. So Zed and Royal Artillery have been a part of this since the idea was created."

No two shows are the same for the crew and the show on Saturday in Bundaberg saw Bubba from the Crusty Demons, who is touring with Seth, sharing his stories a bit more.

"It's not a fully scripted show," he said.

"It's been smooth sailing so far, but I want the shows to just keep on getting better."

Enslow began his career as a Crusty Demons legend in 1994 when the group of daredevils released their first film.

Since then the mad dirt-bike enthusiast has gone on to break many records in the sport, and has also shot dozens of action-packed films.

"My favourite is the first Crusty Demons film we did," he said.

"It came from a dream that we had and ended up putting us on the map."

Though passionate about what he does, Enslow can definitely say he's cheated death more than once.

"I've had a couple of close calls," he says.

"But the important thing is to get back up on the horse and keep going."

Motivated by determination, Enslow says he's a man with a go-get attitude.

"It's all about chasing them dreams," he says.

The crew was out of Gladstone as quickly as they came in, travelling to Rockhampton today so Enslow could do a bit of tattoo artistry.
