We’re sure that there’s a long string of bikers that have grew watching Arthur Fonzarelli in the wonderful Fonzie series back in the days. Riding, or better said, jumping its motorcycle, the famous character perfectly defines the pure and irresistible image previously known only by Evil Knievel.
And if the scene catches all the steps of one of the stunt man’s famous jumps, it still remains a pretty pitiful moment played perfectly by the actor. Check out the retro scene!
To be more precise a triple jump goes as wrong as it can possible go as the bike hits the back face of the third. The moment isn’t tragic at all, but very funny as the rider flies like a bird on the sky before facing the tough reality. Practice more and don’t back off a bit!
The thing is that people simply thing that they can’t be the next victim. It is exactly how Arabs twist those cars on their long desert highways and nothing happens until It Happens. And it does it badly! Translating into motorcycles, the feeling is pretty much the same only that here, riding on the rear wheel does the trick and a car that wasn’t suppose to be there as the first guy passes harmless.
Young Spanish motorcycle riders who have dangerously ridden their bikes now face prison after a fast and risky incursion on a dangerous and speed restricted road in Mallorca.
Called ‘Pikas de motos’, the group raced between Caimari and Selva with tragic results: two teenagers (16, respectively 17 years old) died. This lead to further investigations in the so called motorcycle group and those who face the charges are aged between 19 and 31 years old so that justifies the title.
It is very important to mention that their bikes were condemned and they are awaiting two to five years of prison.
So take care my friends because children’s lives aren’t something to play with, neither throttle on those kinds of road sections. And if you are idiot enough to film yourself and broadcast it on Youtube be sure that the film, although unclear, will become the court’s most important proof.
This is why you should pay attention to the traffic and especially this why those airbag suits will come in handy. Let this be a lesson to all the riders out there. . . don’t crash into parked cars! And for all the drivers: please take your time to look at junctions or to do a shoulder check before turning.
This is what happens when the desire to obtain a good or even the best place is too big. A fast approach towards a large and relatively easy to deal with corner results in a high side and immediately after one of the worst crashes I’ve ever seen during the famous 24 hours race.
Just like the picture shows, it is not always recommended to go strong before a corner and this rider has learned its lesson in the bad way. This also shows that the protective tire wall is sometimes useless or even worst as it is built for cars, not for the trouble getting two wheels of this crashed racing Aprilia RS 125. Let’s just hope that behind those tires there was a soft cushion on which landing in your head would be a bit less painful (like that’s a consolation).
The accident occurred during tests for the Detroit AMA Supercross race and people who assisted to it actually thought that Chad Reed’s career had come to its ending point. Not so much because of the fairly common dynamic of the accident, but because of the sprained shoulder and the internal bleeding (luckily not so serious). The Australian’s state of health is thankfully stable.
