>>peds don't have the kind of suspension (or frame strength) to do that kind of stuff

you would break them in half with a major jump<<

That's sorta true, but one thing you can pull on a moped (and I've done this, but reccommend YOU don't) is a "flyer" jump....that being off a very shallow ramp or from a level higher surface to a level lower one.

Depending on the "hit"...you take certain risks, bottoming out is VERY bad for your transmission, and the frames ain't built to take it, although the one TTLX with reinforcement bars probably woulda done well enough, it was wrecked before that.

As for insane stunts....lets see...(details, but only if ya ask)

Getting clock cleaned by salt truck...

A Flyer-jump of nearly 1-1/2 standard traffic lanes and 4 vertical feet - which was unintended and will NOT be repeated....

One of those bicycle trick 180's from and back to a 3/4 pipe skateboard ramp.

Riding through that one hurricane that tore the hell out of ocean city, Md....but the storm was so spent when it hit baltimore that doesn't really qualify.

A time/endurance race from Far South Baltimore, MD....to Laurel, MD - multiple times.

Getting pogoed out into an intersection cause I chose to stop at a yellow light and the dillwad cagepusher behind me didn't....

Getting totally pasted by a car in a Tbone collision of combined speed 70+mph.

Riding with only one leg attached (if you don't think that's a stunt...TRY it once..)

Any use of a chain weapon from the back of a moped (if that qualifies..)

Meeting a tree branch quite intimately at 30-some MPH....

Towing a buddy on a skateboard (road-surfin we called this) on 20 feet of rope wound around the cargo rack.

Towing a disabled moped the same way (with rider, of course).

And...I dunno is this qualifies either, but what the hell...on a Tomos trike, from a dead stop at idle, slamming full throttle, going into a spin 180 and hitting second gear before it had pulled the full 180 degrees....my buddy nathan about pissed himself watchin that.

I've found, in riding mopeds for like 17 years.....that mosta the REALLY crazy shite you wind up doing is either purely accidental, or pure desperation.
