Getting rear-ended is usually a minor annoyance in a car, but on a motorcycle it's a worst-case scenario. Still, it could have ended much worse for this Texas man nearly crushed between two cars on a Dallas freeway. Amazingly, he survived.
A fully-flickable electric racing motorcycle that integrates body, frame and battery into one structure, and is the size and weight of a 250cc GP bike. Plus, you'll remember the Inuit word for wolf by something other than a VW pickup.
Take a secret 19th century velodrome in the heart of Budapest, a handful of vintage cars and bikes, and a group of petrolheads dressed up in revival gear ready to brave the Siberian chill on an April day, and you’ve got yourself a perfect afternoon. We went along for the ride on the terrifying banked oval in a 1967…
Chip Yates! The name oozes "adrenaline freak," doesn't it? Or maybe "a capella group alumni chairman." Regardless, the SWIGZ team's driver recently pushed a 241HP electric bike to 190MPH from a standing start in under 30 seconds—and strapped a camera to his helmet to prove it.
Texas drivers received a shock when a motorcycle passed them at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour without a driver. Although evidence of the driver and presumably the motorcycle in question was located, a driver could not be found, even after authorities shut down a stretch of highway to search. Why the…
Adam Cramer runs a vintage motorcycle shop in Philadelphia, and filmmaker Andrew David Watson pulled him away from his obsession long enough to hear Cramer's lament for the loss of American craftsmanship. Do your children know from a Phillips screwdriver?
When the corn gets as high as an elephant's eye, farmers still need to spray it for pests, which is why they use high-clearance row crop sprayers. One motorcyclist decided to video his stunt of driving underneath one. Thanks Brandon!
This video of the "Enduro du Touquet 2011" beach race in Northern France is equal parts exciting and trace-inducing. Am I high or is the sand better in Calais? (Hat tip to @Banovsky!)
A Scion xB driver didn't notice the biker in front of her and slammed into his bike, sending him over his handlebars and onto his feet. Despite the knock he seems okay. Another argument for lane-splitting. (Thanks Ian!)
Our fab new site is just the place to see thirty seconds of corporate sellout from 1984 which somehow isn’t tacky: Devo peddling totally space age Honda scooters. The goggles! Dear lord, the goggles.
The immediate response to video of a small Indian girl driving a motorcycle with no helmet is shock and horror, though there's no denying this four-year-old in sunglasses looks cool. The father's bad, but the daughter's bad.
When Bill Costello's father died in 2009, he left a moldering 1958 BMW R50 which hadn't been started in 40 years — along with a secret note for his son. This is the tale of what happened next.
Nicknamed the "Black Devil of Moscow", this Russian madman weaves and wheelies his Yamaha R1 through Russian traffic at a pace that is hard to believe. We hope the Black Devil remains a continent away from our daily commute. [EnglishRussia]
Steve was ready. Steve prepared. Steve knew not to turn. None of that "why did you turn" business for Steverino. Nope. Straight up the ramp into the truck. Steady as she goes, Steve. Steady...steady, little gas...oof. Oh Steve... (H/T SLRSpeedshop!)
