The English Brighton Marina played host to an array of bikers from around the country, but one stood out of crowd – big time!
As we’re led to believe, the Brightonia Motorcycle Festival is a well-frequented gathering of all on two, and even three wheels. The 2010 installment didn’t disappoint with hundreds of custom bikes, trikes, and choppers turning up to take part in the ceremonious burning of rubber while wearing as much leather as possible – obviously. The selection was vast, covering everything from Harleys and Buells to the wicked Jap high-revving superbikes and even modded Vespas (seriously)! The earlier-mentioned chopper that stood out of the crowd was this highly customized creation, featuring bone handlebars, a skull for a headlight – all in shiny chrome. We wonder whether the owner chromed the bits because they’re actual human body parts which he wanted to keep under wraps, or if his intentions were purely aesthetic. Or maybe he is the elusive “Bone Daddy” serial killer hiding in plain view, eh? Either way the Ghost Rider with chains and flaming skull have nothing on this guy!
Take a look at this chopper and start saving money because apparently this is what your kid will ride for the first time in his life if you give him a certain kind of milk.
This children’s powdered milk ad is from the Executive Center agency in Luanda, Angola and we have to admit that if it wasn’t for that can in the bottom of the page, we would have still been wondering what is this suppose to mean.
Ever since Harley-Davidson discontinued Buell, we’ve been getting more and more feedback from angry Buell fans, but this video is the first “official” reaction that we’ve come across. These guys took the time to make fun of H-D by appealing to the motorcycle company’s own arms such as heritage and tradition and they’ve ended up inventing the Extra Soft Tail Deluxe Hyperglide American Bald Eagle Historical Limited VXFR1200 Patriot Skull Edition.
While we can understand their anger, we just cannot take this video seriously. You see the spoof for yourself and make your own decision.
Harley-Davidson designed and built the XR1200 as their very first roadster in an attempt to appeal to younger riders as well. The plan sounded good in theory and if they offered plenty of customization possibilities, the bike qualified as a success. Said and done. But I guess that nobody really thought at doing something like this. Why not when the Harley-Davidson XR1200 monster bike looks like one of the best ways to shake the stress away.
What’s best, this impressive motorcycle offers the unique opportunity of seeing a car crushed by a motorcycle and not the other way around. Revenge looks good!
Bikers are known to be heavy drinking people, it’s in their blood, just like riding is, but we never heard of anyone combining the two passions except the times it lead to crashes. In this case though, we’re surprised to see a couple riding and pulling a barrel of whisky along for the ride.
We can’t help but wonder if the liquor made it to the destination or what the police would have said in the unhappy event of pulling them along the side of the road.
Although this is not a veritable Harley-Davidson trike, it does stand out as a lame attempt of virtually anything considered to be a mean of transportation. It looks very comfortable, but still too silly for our taste.
P.S. I would really like to see the guy riding this tent motorcycle.
As you can see, this motorcycle police officer has found a new, interesting, unique, but extremely efficient method to stop those who break the law. It all consists in attracting the outlaws like a magnet rather than chasing them all over the highway.
I can imagine drivers waiting in line to beg for a biiig ticket. I’m not sure what they’re going to receive although I could make a few remarks regarding to what could there be in that spacious trunk that she rests her elbow on.
Two symbols of the United States, the burger and Harley-Davidson motorcycles unite into an incredibly strange looking and most likely smelling combination, the Burger Trike. Harry Sperl is the name behind this unlikely project and the sacrificed bike is a 1987 Harley-Davidson.
This crazy looking thing has even onion-like rear wheels while the front rim looks like a tomato slice so the menu is complete and ready to be served.
We all know how hard it is for people to buy the right present…I mean for Santa to create and transport the right present for each person individually, but if it still travels, at least to do it in style. This one sure knows what that means although he lost his beard in the process.
A Santa that rides like that won’t deliver anything but aftermarket exhaust and a whole bunch of accessories for our bikes. Perfect!
Merry Christmas to everyone!
How bad have you been this year? The funny clip attached below shows the Santa Claus of bikers, a guy that doesn’t dress in red, has no dears and among the presents in his bag you’ll most likely find chromed silencers.
This ad was published today on the Harley-Davidson official Youtube channel and promotes the bad boy life style and, of course, the American builder’s unique products.
One of Harley’s latest ads doesn’t involve the bike actually being ridden by someone, but powerlifted by the famous Scot Mendelson.
The Motor Company claims less than 18 bucks a pound something that would make people optimistic about their chances to actually lift the bike if having the bad luck of tipping it over, but the powerlifter apparently got the wrong idea. It is nice to see him doing this though.
The world’s local bank or not, but I love the scenario that HSBC imagines for making their own commercial. A world in which Harley-Davidson is the number one mean of transportation is probably every rider’s dream and if it can’t be made reality at least it brings your pc’s screen to live.
This is a Old West style ad for the Georgia State Lottery featuring as modern as possible elements such as a parking meter and a 105th Anniversary Harley-Davidson Fat Boy mechanical horse. The two touches of modernity start the conflict in this clip, but the funny part is how it ends.
You’d think that you have heard it all. Biker gangs are normal, and have been in existence since mankind started riding motorcycles. We’ve also seen more and more preachers taking to their Harleys. But nuns?
Yes, there is an order within the Church that has nuns on bikes. They don’t ride them though. The motorcycles belong to the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang, and when they visit Milwaukee, the place they stay is with the honorary members of their motorcycle club; the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida.
The sisters have provided shelter to the motorcycle club, and in return, the club have taken them for rides and made them members.
The “affair” started during Harley-Davidson’s 100th birthday bash. The MMG couldn’t find a place to stay, and turned to the nuns, who willingly hosted them. Since then, the club has kept in contact with the Sisters, and for the 105th birthday bash, they stayed with the Order again.
A love affair on on first sight? Ride Nice, Pray Hard....
Now traffic participants can’t say that they didn’t see him coming. If this excuse keeps showing up on police statements, this is how motorcycle helmets will end up looking.
The giant helmet brings a whole bunch of benefits and it is also very amusing due to the domain it is being used. A big head motorcycle police officer won’t pass easily unnoticed.
We cannot even deny it, the bike remains and will remain a strong asset. Here is a short video that shows you the power of attraction of a biker. I asked myself: what makes those young ladies go crazy like that? I wonder if he is some kind of a celebrity ot it is the bike itself?
Watch the video and you will see...
