Everyday stuff such as a roller carousel and a scooter aren’t dangerous at all as long as people use them for the purposes they were created for, but teenagers aren’t quite known for doing that with stuff on a regularly basis. So take a look at this video to see what happens when a bunch of teenagers try to spice up their carousel ride using the power of a scooter. Hope that guy is ok.
In one of Orkin’s (company producing an anti-cockroach poison) latest commercial for hot tubs, they show a monster bug going in “for a piece of the action” and then making a run for it…on a motorcycle. This is actually a funny commercial if you don’t come to think this is actually how people around us see motorcyclists.
Either the owner of this Suzuki DR is willing to take his enduro bike across the continent or only to the cesspit and back as he has fitted the bike with probably the world’s larges panniers, so there’s got to be a great purpose for someone to ruin his bike like that.
Still, we have all the reasons to believe the guy actually uses that stuff to carry his luggage as the panniers can be locked…why would anyone lock the garbage? Also, he has a fuel canister on the side, so this is definitely a homemade long distance motorcycle. Love it or not, it gets the job done.
Very often, careless riders end up challenging different obstacles around them and in most cases the obstacles are the ones that win. This is also the case of this possibly drunk fellow riding a scooter around just so that he would look a bit more interesting on the camera until a handrail gets him. That’s just crazy.
The guy on this bike clearly hasn’t been riding for long, but now that he just joined the club he may at least look cool (or make an attempt to) while riding. This is his pretty much lame attempt to feed an obsessive Easy Rider dream for as little as $50.
It seems our custom bike fan got it all wrong from the start as his bike is nothing more than a moped, while the customizing bits consist in a Pegas bicycle handlebar, an extra headlight (the original didn’t worked anyway), more lights and leathers.
The result may be laugh worthy for those who have taken the picture, but this rider is actually living the dream.
We added a second picture after the jump just for comparison.
Harley-Davidson designed and built the XR1200 as their very first roadster in an attempt to appeal to younger riders as well. The plan sounded good in theory and if they offered plenty of customization possibilities, the bike qualified as a success. Said and done. But I guess that nobody really thought at doing something like this. Why not when the Harley-Davidson XR1200 monster bike looks like one of the best ways to shake the stress away.
What’s best, this impressive motorcycle offers the unique opportunity of seeing a car crushed by a motorcycle and not the other way around. Revenge looks good!
Those of you who at seeing BMW’s tablecloth trick said frenetically that neither the S1000RR nor any other superbike could ever do that no matter the acceleration times, will surely find reward in this video. Bike Magazine have taken the exact same bike and used a much smaller table only to demonstrate how the trick just isn’t possible at large scale.
It is unlikely that someone would think at fitting a motorcycle with larger exhaust pipes than the ones seen in the attached video, so these are probably the largest to end up on the web so far. Still, a question remains: why would anyone want to do that? Also considering the quiet neighborhood this guy revs that bike around we’re suspecting a ticket isn’t too far away.
Aprilia has found an original way to promote their 2010 Dorsoduro 750 Factory by comparing the sensation of riding their supermoto with that provided by a rollercoaster. The 63 seconds video is actually funny at the end, so check it out.
If you liked yesterday’s Russian idea for a snowmobile, you’ll definitely like the Russian modified scooter too. It may look more or less like a toy war machine from the early 1900s, but it is in fact a daily commuter for someone who can never get enough oil on his hands and snow in his boots.
Details on the snow scooter are scarce, but it looks practical and as long as it puts a smile on the owner’s face there’s not much more you can ask from it. I wonder if a nice Russian girl actually rides this think…makes me wanna pack up and go see for myself.
