Pitbull Motorcycle Lifts are the perfect items for when you need to do some maintenance work, repair or simply clean up your bike. They allow a full 25" lifting height and are the most resistant out there. Also, they are capable of a complete 360 degree rotation so you won’t be needed to move around the bike as you detail it, but simply and easily rotate the ingeniously built lift.
The company has recently made a TV ad in which the entire functions of their cruiser specific lift are being explained and demonstrated. So if that looks like the next item to be purchased for your garage, go to www.pitbullmotorcyclelifts.com and order yours.
Remember how Arnold Schwarzenegger used to ride a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in Terminator back in the 1980s when the movie was in vogue? Well, in Terminator Salvation, the latest of the series and expected to make a debut in May of 2009, a scary motorcycle is the actual Terminator.
Starring new action hero Christian Bale, the new movie continues the fight between man and the machines which try to take over the world. Among these machines, the Moto-Terminator stands out as the Apache of motorcycles and it is all the result of a visionary man: Production director Martin Laing.
In order for riders to avoid becoming the victims of Grand Theft Moto they are now offered a very efficient anti-motorcycle jacking solution. Called the SkyBrake, the system is composed from two devices, a small transmitter which you must always carry on your body and a receiver playing the role of an immobilizer which is mounted to the motorcycle engine.
Knowing that, let’s imagine the next scenario: You are happily commuting in New Mexico, let’s say, and stop at a traffic light. A hijacker separates you from your bike and rides away with it. Normally, this would be a good time to call the cops…or start crying, but that’s not the way a true biker works things out, doesn’t it? The thief won’t manage to shift second and the engine will be cut out by the engine blocking module so that you can recover your bike unharmed.
The system is sold for €250 and it is 100% efficient as long as you don’t make the mistake of fitting the transmitter also on the bike.
A young man named Colin Furze went from the biggest bonfire record to the world’s longest motorbike one with great ease apparently. No wonder as Colin was determined to set a motorbike world record, not a very expensive one just something fun, enough to make him famous.
The challenge was to build a bike that was longer than 9.6 meters (the previous world record) and simply ride it for 100 meters. His homemade machine, previously a scooter ended up measuring 14 meters and Colin had no problems in riding on a runway at Saltby Airfield in Lincolnshire
Referring at how it ended up doing it, Colin says:
“I had a look through the motorbike world records and all the speed ones seemed far too expensive to try to break, so I thought we go for this - a nice big long one. It’s been a lot of fun.
“It’s taken a lot of building. You start doing something at one end and then you want to do something at the other end and of course your tools are 14 metres away - so you’re contantly walking up and down the garden.”
This guy is so caught by motorcycle accident videos which he saw on the internet that he decided to do one of its own and post it online. The funny part (because there actually is a funny part) is that he hasn’t got a real bike to ruin so it improvises with junk. Pretty accurate description I could say…although I’m not sure about that toilet cap around its neck. Is that for protection?
Drag racing is the way to go if you plan on becoming the fastest female motorcycle rider on Earth and it seems that Jennifer Robertson has got that right. Growing up in a family that is passionate about racing, Jennifer inherited the passion for motorcycles from his father and started to rider since it was six years old.
Currently, she is riding a Turbo Hayabusa and attempts to hit 223mph – the record for the fastest women on a motorcycle – and claims “…we just got to get the bike to work. I can do it”. Well, that’s the spirit!
A few months ago we would have presented to you the first pictures of a Jaguar motorcycle together with the little information we had on it at that time. The pictures, which were taken during production, said pretty much all about the bike then, but you can get up to date as the bike is now finished and presented to the public.
Called the Leaper bike, it clearly combines the English car manufacturer’s logo with a motorcycle. The innovative idea belongs to Barend Hemmes, but the project was undergone with the help of Polar Cycles in South Yorkshire.
Mr Hemmes, an interior designer aged 36 said he came up with the idea when doodling in the office and that the artistic part consisting in the fiberglass bodywork was made by him, together with a sculptor.
In order for this cat to purr as good as it looks the guys at South Yorkshire used parts of a classic 1,200cc Buell 97 S3 Thunderbolt bought off eBay. The V-Twin engine manages to power it up to a top speed of 50mph which isn’t impressive at all, but makes it easier for admirers to get a first glance when it rolls through urban jungle.
The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy inspired the creation of this impressively accurate remote-controlled Lego replica named the Mindstorms NXT Fat Boy. Good for kids, but not for us, you will say and we must agree, but what makes us interested in it is the fact that its controller is shaped like a real bike’s handles.
In the video attached below you will notice that it also leans, like any respectable modern two-wheeled toy and the additional wheels aren’t easy to spot. So now you know what to buy your kid for Christmas and we also know who’s going to be playing with it when snow will cover the asphalt.
