Spy shots of the Bat Pod before the movie started everybody’s curiosity and the Dark Night is indeed a success on the screens, but now with the bike’s full detaliling (see video below) everybody will finally find out everything they want to know about this outrageous motorcycle.
Even more, there’s even the question if it can be considered a motorcycle as it has various features that have never been seen before. Batman has definately set the trend for motorcycling future with its engines being fitted in the wheels and the unique riding position.
But if you’re not Batman, there are small chances you’ll fill at home on it due to its size and approximately 700 pounds weight.
This year at Laguna Seca there was a stunt session planned and it all went smooth until the safety car made a bumpy entry for stuntman Chris Pfeiffer performing on its tricked out BMW motorcycle.
If “safety” car drivers don’t pay attention when being surrounded by motorcycles, what are we suppose to expect from normal car drivers with lots of problems on their heads? Now really!
The public’s applause can be obtained not only with lands speed records, longest or highest motorcycle jumps, but also by having a few motorcycle acrobats ride into a sphere and look like lottery balls. It isn’t as spectacular, but it does the trick and, most importantly, it doesn’t break bones.
Computer games have their small monsters in the closet, but Hollywood beats them all. There can be no bigger proof than the scene in Mission Impossible 2 in which Ethan Hunt races around on a Triumph and competition soon arrives on a Suzuki.
Bullets, burnouts, jumps, everything was there for a box-office success. You don’t see this being done any more, but you can’t really say you loved it, don’t you?
Who says that only new bikes are fun? Check out this video in which crazy rider, Adam G., filmed by friend Tomasz I., shows the best a 1958 Junak M-07 with 1959 side car Wb-1 can do. Lift the side car in the air, do some little burnouts and a couple of spins and you’re hooked with the “crazy rider” nickname for ever.
Bike scenes are all about the show so, in them, the machines we most love on earth are shown defying the laws of physics with great ease.
We’ve all seen the Terminator and its motorcycle scenes, as well as Lethal Weapon and it is nice to go back from time to time and see where we were in order to know where we’re heading. But what we haven’t seen and still don’t are the stuntman filling in for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mel Gibson. They’re real heroes too, you know?
Lethal Weapon 3
When lights fall down (or not), I see no reason for you to…brake a few bones! Exactly like in this bunch of short clips of guys trying to show off their motorcycle riding skills and failing miserably. There must be other ways of learning. I mean, have they ever thought at mechanically limiting the throttle action if they can’t do it humanly with their brains? That’s where it all starts.
On July 11, freestyle motocross superstar Ronnie Renner will attempt to establish the Guinness World Record for highest air ever attained on a motorcycle - the Step-Up world record currently stands at 35 feet.
He’ll use the crazy quarter pipe in this video to do it. And he’ll make the attempt at the Santa Monica Pier in California.
