Did you ever wonder what daredevils do in their free time (I mean, when they are not recovering after one of those unsuccessful stunt attempts, of course)? According to this video, they work and have a lot of fun doing it.
This is Travis Pastrana at his third and successful attempt of back flipping a child’s tricycle.
P.S. We can’t wait for a double back flip on that thing!
Travis Pastrana is a daredevil that needs no presentation and it is very interesting to see footage of one the greatest action sport heroes of all times from when it wasn’t so famous, but as much as an adrenaline seeker as it is now. Get a good glimpse at the 199 Lives trailer and imagine yourself in any of the situations. How would you react?
The early 1990s brought the Renegade series in which Lorenzo Lamas was an “outlaw” riding a motorcycle. Pff…what else could an outlaw ride if not a motorcycle? Well…probably some good looking chicks, but that’s another part of the series.
The point of interest here are the bad boy ads that were created for the movies and which still speak the story pretty well. So here they are for you to enjoy.
Owner of a $72,500 Ducati Desmosedici RR and of a 2009 Ducati Monster 1100S which he has recently received as birthday present from Angelina, Brad Pit apparently prefers to ride his chopper to the Walt Disney Studios, as seen in the video attached below.
Before I say anything more, it is a must mentioning that the guy should be left to do his riding and not be literally chassed all the way to his destination. At least that is what I prefer when riding and I believe all riders do so.
But now that we got the video, it is nice to see how Brad uses a hand shifter and enjoys revving that massive V-Twin as he waits for the traffic light to turn green.
They say no racer tries hard enough if it doesn’t eventually end up crashing, but we have no reason to question Michael Schumacher’s ambition as these pictures reflect that best.
Practicing at Sachsenring for the German Superbike, the former F1 champion skid the peg too much until it ended up crashing his Honda CBR1000RR during a high-speed corner. The funny part is the face he made while preparing to face the unforgiving test of the asphalt
Advise: If you’re heard saying “I’m not scared of bikers. If they crash into my car, they crumple and I go home” or, also referring to bikers “One day I will silence them by stretching a piece of cheese wire across the road”, it isn’t quite recommended to be spotted riding a two-wheeled vehicle, isn’t it? The mastermind behind these actions is Jeremy Clarkson’s, presenter of Top Gear car BBC show and declared hater of motorcycles.
The thing is that this picture not only shows him agreeing with the simplest, cheapest and most convenient form of transportation, but also makes him a total woos. A speed addict finds his way to motorcycling…on a Vespa scooter equipped with red gloves and protective glasses?
He even uses a communication kit that allows him to talk at its mobile phone while riding, something that tells us that he’s been doing this for a while. At least it won’t get caught speeding and talking at the cell phone in the same time.
Actor Tom Arnold gives an interview to Joe Capicotti from 2Xtreem Motorcycle TV after just finishing cutting the ribbon at the Motostars Exhibition. In its characteristic style, the rider talks about its passion for motorcycles, how it all began and how it evolved during the years.
After seeing Babylon A.D and remaining hooked by the futuristic machines showcased in the movie I couldn’t help myself from being more and more interested in French custom bikes. But as much as I’d dig, one builder in particularly deprived me from sleep. Yes, you’ve guessed, it is all about those Lazareth custom bikes, isn’t it?
Made famous by Vin Diesel and the cinema screen, the bikes are best characterized best by their computer-controlled big supercharged V-Twin engines and futuristic design, often implying single-sided forks and swingarms. Babylon A.D. inspired this builder to go for the post-apocalyptic look of these streetfighters, which is an opportunity as unique as they get.
The video features the bikes as they are being tested, revealing an incredible sound that has nothing to do with a V-Twin motor.
Apparently yes. The photos were taken yesterday down Sunset Blvd. in L.A. just when the famous movies star enjoyed a relaxing ride on its classic Norton motorcycle. It seems that Keanu is an adept of the idea that motorcycles are made to be ridden, no matter their year of fabrication.
Dressed like an English man in…L.A. and wearing a blazer helmet and leather gloves, the Canadian actor seems to play one of its most enjoyable role yet.
