Hill climbing has never been thought at as to a safe sport, but this is more than we can take. This video shows some of the craziest climbs ever, among which most are, obviously, failed. But wait till the end to see one rider that had a rather slow and safe approach towards the hill and who made it.
Mulholland highway in Los Angeles, California sure has its tricky bits and careless riders tend to point them with their own fails. Earlier this year, we saw a Honda CBR1000RR being crashed into the guardrail as a result of point fixation and shifting error and today we bring you exactly that same type of crash happening on the same stretch of highway. Hmm, that’s a bad curve for Hondas as this is a CBR600F4i. Look but don’t learn.
We’re not here to do or say anything perverse, but the fact that one of the sexiest and most beautiful women on the planet is doing an ad campaign with Harley Davidson makes it a little harder for us to control the urge to salivate at our keyboards.
That being said, we’re going to resist the urge and adhere to a little self-control. So Harley Davidson , as if they needed any more promotion and marketing, went out and got one of the most gorgeous pieces of eye candy in the world to promote "Start Something", a series that pretty much invites everybody to ride a motorcycle by debunking all those reasons people might have in opting for safer modes of transportation. While we’re already safely on Harley’s side of the fence, there are still people - especially men - that have erred on the side of caution when it comes to riding motorcycles. To those men, Harley Davidson would like you to meet Marisa Miller. And if this drop-dead vixen can’t get you to ride a motorcycle within a week’s time, chances are, you won’t ever do it.
Check out the behind-the-scenes footage of how the shoot came to be. Word of warning, though. We’re not claiming responsibility if your computer decides to overheat due to the video’s steaminess.
Remember Blastolene’s Hemi-powered trike displayed last year at the Grand National Roadster Show? Well, it is called the Frogman Rocket II Trike and it is now in the hands of happy owner Tim Cotterill who had the kindness of having a film made in which all trike lovers can see the 1000hp supercharged Hemi V8 trike in action.
Produced by Andrew Cappelletti, the video is all about taking this beast in its natural environment, feed it tons of gas and get a rush from it. To us, it looks like it shouldn’t exist or at least be legal, but it is and that guy is the luckiest we’ve seen on three wheels so far. Hit the jump for the video.
It looks like Kobe Bryant has inspired these morons to attempt their own version of the famous “stunt” failed by the famous basketball player. I know, it sounds crazy but between the time this guy got hit and up until he hit the ground, he felt like a sports star…and he lives to crash his body another day.
Check this out! It is a funny Yamaha commercial from Italy, where they advise riders to “Treat Every Yamaha as it Was Yours.” That guy sure does so with that FZ8 despite the fact that he actually rides a Super Ténéré .
What do you think of this for a Yamaha way to promote two of their latest motorcycles on the European market?
As you probably already know, May is the motorcycle awareness month. But before we start asking other people using the road to look out for us, we must make sure we have taken all the possible safety measures. So Nelson Nunez, Michael Nunez and Rosemarie Lennon have put together a video about the 11 most important steps that need to be covered for your own safety and that of the people around you: get trained, wear a helmet, wear protective clothing, brake carefully, approach intersections cautiously, pass carefully, keep your distance, avoid riding in rain, never ride side-by-side, approach curves cautiously and never drink and drive. Also, their must-have biker list includes: a license, a helmet, protective clothing, extreme caution and reflective tape and stickers. Good luck out there!
The 2010 Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour has reached its second location – Giza – for an even more exciting round next to the pyramids. So the restless sponsor has released a healthy preview made of photos and a video, which is more like a teaser for the event. Some of the most talented riders participating are Nate Adams (USA), Robbie Maddison (AUS), Eigo Sato (JPN) and Levi Sherwood (NZL). Click past the break to hear their opinions about the pyramids, but also to see Robbie Maddison’s sand jump.
Organizer of the Phoenix Motorcycle Riders Group, John Fox has produced a video promoting the Worldwide Motorcycle Awareness Ride held on May 23rd. Starting from the idea that they have to help traffic participants understand why they need to be more aware of motorcycles, they’ve done this:
Honda’s latest North American advertisement is for their latest additions to their cruiser lineup, the Sabre, Interstate and Stateline models and it consists in both print and TV ads. They’re all funny and enjoyable as they try to point out the eye-catching look of Honda’s trio. We won’t ruin the surprise for you, so click past the break for the Chain Gang video. Enjoy.
