In brief: Is what?
Reckless behavior can sometimes be related to suicidal tendencies but not always.
More would need to be known about the situation to provide a helpful response. Psychiatric evaluation can help to tease these issues apart. Take care.

In brief: Maybe
I'm a skydiver, and while people say we're crazy, i've not met a saner, more life-cherishing group -- play by the rules and it's safer than driving.
The public may stigmatize an activity as "reckless" or "death-seeking" when it's merely a way of living to the fullest. It's the drunk driver, the drug abuser, the promiscuous casual-sex addict whose reckless behavior may be "chronic suicide.".
