It seems that Shaquille O’Neal has inspired these two daring stuntman to get their own act together and because they wanted things to turn out for the best, they used a very low motorcycle instead of a massive Cadillac. Unfortunately, the guy supposed to jump did it too late and although he survived, I have a hunch he won’t end up with any grandkids to tale the tale too.
This Suzuki Burgman 125 scooter is clearly having a bad day as the owner left it parked on the sidewalk and then workers came to pour concrete all over the place. It seems that the thing is now an integrated part of the Via del Porto Fluviale in Rome.
Hmm, last time I checked, Japanese scooters weren’t an ingredient of Roman concrete.
This funny video was sent to me by a friend who referred to the situation of the characters involved as being “a fairytale gone bad.” Long story short, the 20-year-old would have done anything to take his new girlfriend into bed so he let her ride his motorcycle with him as passenger. They both ended up hugging a mail box and then judged on TV.
Those among you who might think they’ve seen and done it all can start reconsidering because bicycle drifting is certainly something you’ve never crossed roads with. If until now drifting was associated with powerful cars and motorcycles performing usually on closed course tracks and creating a lot of smoke, we’re happy to announce that bicycle drifting is just as fun and although it might not heat up the rubber that much, it is a whole lot cheaper. Just take a look at these kids, who have “patented” bicycle drifting.
Master of backflips Travis Pastrana together with Ken Block and the guys at DC shoes have come up with a unique customization idea for the FMX Suzuki bike ridden by Travis. They thought at getting rid of the tires (they were too comfortable anyway) and slip the bike into something more stylish, like these pares of shoes. Said and done! The bike is featured in a DC ad and on an episode of MTV’s Nitro Circus, where you can see Travis doing a backflip and finally tearing the rear wheel apart in one of the sickest burnouts we’ve seen in a long time. See it all for yourself in the video attached after the jump.
A Yamaha dealer in Australia – Coast Yamaha – has come up with a very funny commercial in order to motivate riders to stop playing and get their own real motorcycle. They use a pocket bike to create an optical illusion and so determine viewers at least to watch the video over and over again if not rushing to the respective dealer and choose their bike.
If it wasn’t for all the protest signs, it might seem that these Tel Aviv riders are having quite a motorcycle parade, but the reason why they are stripped to their underwear is, obviously, explained on their signs, which say: ’The protest spreads/strips around the country’ or ’The insurance companies strip you naked’. Hmm, still not elucidated? Israel’s Minister of Finance recently decided to raise insurance fees for motorcycles and this is the motorcycle community’s original response. Could they possibly be more conceivable?
This Japanese biker rides his Honda NSR50 to the very limit and beyond. Although the bike is destined to novices, by watching the video you’ll find that this guy has long passed that stage and he is now even able to touch the asphalt with his head and manages to pivot himself and his ride around that point. Simply unbelievable!
We’ve come across a very funny video showing an actor from Hollyoaks, the famous UK television soap opera, trying to pass over an easy obstacle at the Red Bull Romaniacs, the hardest enduro rallye in the world. The guy actually manages to see his way over the obstacle, but gets too enthusiastic about it and…and he brings home a nice story, just as the boss told him to. Just look at him go.
MotoGP star Valentino Rossi gives fans the opportunity to see him in intimate postures on his new website www.valentinorossi.com. Whether he is sleeping, relaxing with the cows or even wearing boxer shorts on his head after doing the laundry, Valentino shows how MotoGP riders have to enjoy every second of their free time so that they can give even the impossible out on the racing track.
The site was also created to offer news, videos and photos (including behind-the-scenes) of Valentino Rossi from every GP round, so it should keep fans pretty hooked up.
