Motorcycle jumps over plane that's flying sideways close to the ground

I don't know who had the hardest job in this video that stacks crazy on top of crazy. On first watch, I'd side with the pilot who's flying an airplane sideways mere feet from the ground. Another look would make me think it's the motorcyclist who has to jump over that plane. Or maybe it's the random guy crouching down… » 6/10/14 10:08pm 6/10/14 10:08pm

Oh my, motorcyclist just misses crashing into a horse on the road

Damn. This girl on the motorcycle just avoided one of the most ridiculously dangerous accidents you could ever imagine: hitting a horse on the road. Seriously, she's zooming down the road when a horse starts acting up and jumps over to her lane. She quickly maneuvers around it—thankfully, for her and the horse's… » 5/13/14 11:44pm 5/13/14 11:44pm

The Sarolea Superbike Is a Lightning-Powered Speed Demon

It's been half a century since Belgium's famed Sarolea motorcycle brand last put out a bike but they're clearly making up for lost time with the incomprehensibly gorgeous, all-electric-and-carbon-fiber SP7. And to prove they're back in the superbike game, Sarolea is entering this black beauty into next month's… » 5/06/14 11:30am 5/06/14 11:30am

A motorcycle crash at 140mph from the motorcyclist's point of view

Well, this is absolutely terrifying. This helmet cam footage shows a motorcyclist crashing his bike at 140mph, hitting the car in front of him and having his body catapulted and spun for what seems like an eternity on the road.

With a Kevlar-Lined Shirt, You're Not Completely Screwed in a Crash

Pay attention as the weather gets warmer: you're gonna see a lot of motorcyclists riding around in regular street clothes, nothing but hopes and dreams protecting them from nasty road rash should things get tumbly. Well, maybe not all of them—hopefully, some will be wearing Crave's kevlar-lined Axe shirt, which looks… » 4/23/14 5:00pm 4/23/14 5:00pm

Trying Out a 3D-Scanner That Makes Helmets Custom-Molded to Your Head

It's not hard to find a badass-looking helmet for your adrenaline-fueled hobbies. The trick is finding one that fits correctly. For decades, that's meant buying a standard (S/M/L) size lid and rearranging the padding to conform to your noggin. Recently, I got to try out a much better way. » 4/11/14 3:00pm 4/11/14 3:00pm

Beautiful Custom Motorbike Is Actually a 360º Security Camera

This gorgeous custom motorbike began its life as an utterly mundane Honda P25, a fuel-efficient 1960s scooter. But motorcycle artisan Chicara Nagata turned it into a sweeping sculpture with a social-commentary twist: the tiny bike carries four infrared security cameras in its frame, built at the behest of a Japanese… » 4/02/14 6:20pm 4/02/14 6:20pm

Watch how scary fast a motorcycle goes during a high speed race

The world starts to blur. People and trees and houses and stores are just streaks of colors as you zoom by. The roads become vertical as you make your turns. You're going so fast that, if you hit anything on the road, even a stick, you're probably going to fly hundreds of feet in the air and smack yourself to pulp.… » 3/19/14 9:01pm 3/19/14 9:01pm

This Electric Motorcycle Has Storage Space Instead of a Gas Tank

Unless you're on some giant Harley designed for a long cruise across the country, a backpack is probably the most storage room you've got on a motorcycle. But besides the savings on fuel, an electric motorcycle has other advantages, like a giant hole where the gas tank and engine used to be—which this bike, the Feddz,… » 3/17/14 6:40pm 3/17/14 6:40pm
