When buying a motorcycle, some riders look for speed and others for comfort, but the most challenging part for motorcycle makers was to build one machine that meets these two requests. There you have the incredible Honda Goldwing meeting the comfort standards of even the most demanding riders, but you still have to earn enough money to buy and maintain such a model. The guy who did this to his Kawasaki Ninja clearly doesn’t, but we certainly can’t blame him for that. This is just an original way to make sure he still has a vertebral spine in his 70s.
Who among you will do the same thing to their sports motorcycle?
This video is apparently one that shows nothing new in matter of crashes while drag racing. The rider of one bike released the clutch too fast, gave the bike too much gas, the front end lifted from the ground and he totally lost control. We can understand that. What we can’t understand is where that photographer was running to so fast that he couldn’t even managed to stay on his feet.
So know you know why people argue that much about author rights.
We recently came across an out-of-the-way combination between a motorcycle and a coffin. No, we’re not aware of any biker actually crashing into a coffin. In this case, the coffin plays the comfortable role of the sidecar, which is attached to this pretty stock cruiser.
The bike is not even a herse and it is frequently ridden looking like this. What is your opinion about it? Or, better said, how do you think the passenger in the right feels like?
Yamaha has just released the new promotional video for the Fazer series. The sport-touring two-wheelers look right in their element on twisted mountain roads because Yamaha engineered these models for pure performance and comfort, while the design is as aggressive as you can get in this class.
The video shows a motorcycle pack (coworkers, to be quite honest) choosing to skip work in order to ride more their…Fazers and spend some quality time together. So I guess that in this case, riding is some sort of team building activity.
This is one motorcycle TV ad that doesn’t do bikers any favor, but at least it is funny. Still, I totally dislike the fact that a symbol of freedom is being compared with a living room on wheels, even if it’s raining.
If all the kids that grew up to become motorcyclists had a rocking metal horse in their early years of life, at least parents would know where they did “wrong”.
This rocking motorcycle was built by Felix Götze, who used parts from old german motorbikes. This makes the thing reliable and, together with the resistant frame, it is sure to put a smile on many generations of little faces in one happy family. The first in line is Otto Komei, a three-year-old who enjoys watching the neighbors working on their bikes. Sitting on this rocking motorcycle, at least he’ll feel connected to their activity until he is old enough to join the club and finally let mom and dad realize what they encouraged him to do.
The seat is an old style unit and looks highly resistant to…diaper
content (is it true that they don’t wear those after two years or so?). Also, the headlight and instruments have been properly sealed so that the inevitable drool won’t mess things up when the lucky kid admires the pinstripe from German airbrush-artist Thomas Weber.
The rocking bike was built in educational purposes as well. “Powered” by a single-cylinder, two-stroke engine with 150 cc, it teaches the little fellow to start with small steps in life.
Although you might laugh, this motorcycle crash video (caught by the security camera) isn’t entirely funny. It shows a man riding his Ducati Monster and apparently attempting to perform a stoppie. His attempt is unsuccessful and he ends up smashing into not so bone-friendly security gates.
We feel sorry for his idiocy and hope he didn’t suffer sever injury!
The original Batcycle used in the making of the first ‘Batman’ series in the 1960s recently sold for $ 29,500 on eBay.
Composed from a motorcycle and sidecar, the three-wheeled Batmobile has little over 7,000 miles on board and still runs beautifully. The main cycle is powered by a 250cc Yamaha engine, while the detachable sidecar has a separate 50cc motor that got Robin in and out of his own tricky situations.
In the video that we attached, Adam West & Burt Ward joke about the stunts and props that crumpled Robin on a daily basis.
Apparently, this guy considers himself a smaller Shaq O’Neal and, so, it is inspired by the famous big guy’s jumps over cars and barbeques to pull out this very stupid and unsuccessful attempt to jump over a speeding Kawasaki Ninja. Now that’s a very nice way of making sure that your family jewels will never be productive again!
Vespa, the famous scooter manufacturer from Italy, has found a very funny way of promoting their 125cc four-stroke model using the King Kong theme. Of course, this is a distorted version in which the beast fells in love with the machine rather than with the beautiful girl, leaving us wondering how will the gorilla commute on that thing through the urban jungle. Or is the beast only going to polish the Vespa and then stare at it for hours and hours?
