We hear a lot of talk about women being much safer drivers than men, but how does that apply when it comes to motorcycles? Here’s a pretty long video called Motorcycle Stunt Girls – Graceful Perfection. It doesn’t show the professional female stunt riders crashing or anything, but what about those stunts? I guess there’s a black sheep in every flock and we happen to like these ones a lot.
We just got across a video that made a question pop up in our minds: are snowmobiles more fun than dirt bikes? They must be if ridden by the craziest guys in Iceland, just as this video reveals. It shows two guys worming up their sleds into a local reservoir and then deciding to climb onto the extremely steep concrete walls, the first up the side of a 30-foot cliff and the second goes for a mind-blowing 70-foot one. You’ll need a breath of fresh air after seeing this and start looking at snowmobiles as to gravity-defying machines. I guess this does make them better than dirt bikes.
Check this out! A track riding instructor took his Honda Goldwing for a spin during a trackday in London, New Hampshire. The bike may not be exactly in its element and I’m sure the guy riding doesn’t feel as confident as on a CBR1000RR model, but as hard as it may be to believe, he actually manages to scrap a knee and live to tell the tale…or post in on youtube.
That’s kind of like driving a stretch limo around a race track only that much more spectacular!
Here’s a professionally made video compilation showing two of the most dangerous stunts gone wrong during the 1990s as well as a third, the only one from which the rider managed to walk away. It is part of the "When Stunts go Bad" TV show and it is all about the dangers of jumping a motorcycle.
Police patrols are known to have favorite “haunting” spots and this has got to be it for the one in this video simply because of the easy “prey”. Take a look at this inexperienced Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R rider having the time of his life on Mullholland highway near Malibu when he is surprised by the cops during a high speed corner and makes the BIG mistake of hitting the front brake. See the shameful result in the video after the jump.
For all of you out there who look at Harleys and say “I’m gonna buy one of those some day,” H-D has launched a special website and TV ad called Make This the Year. The American company’s campaign looks to be for Canada, but it applies to that category of potential buyers from all over the world.
