Wow. Just when I thought I had seen all kinds of jumps photographed in every possible way, comes this guy and straps a GoPro in continuous shooting photo mode to take a new angle of a Superman jump (no hands or legs, just him floating above the bike, mid-jump.) Unbelievably cool.
Now this is how you bail on a stunt: when the whole point of the stunt is to bail in the most epic way possible. The motorcyclist in the video flies his motorbike off a ramp, jumps off the bike while releasing his parachute and then lands right into the narrow river as the bike crashes before him.
Airline and aerobatic pilot Glen Dell and FMX rider Nick de Wit needed two years of planning before attempting this amazing stunt: Nick backflipped his dirtbike over Glen's plane flying under it. Everything worked out perfectly and the resulting images are truly spectacular.
This point-of-view video captures some terrifying Brazilian driving, as a car overtakes a lorry, narrowly avoids wiping out a bike and then plunges off the edge of the road. Miraculously no one suffered any serious injuries.
This guy, 87mcmahan87 on YouTube, is one ballsy son of a gun. Just watch this video. He recorded himself zooming around on his motorbike on a super skinny and snowy mountain ridge in Colorado. I almost died watching him balance, teeter and tease fate like a madman. If he slipped up, he would've came crashing down to…
Looking more like a Tron Lightcycle than any motorbike you've ever seen before, the Swiss MonoTracer has been electrified for the new MonoTracer-E model, which still fits two people for a comfortable, eco-friendly ride.
Instead of using the porch area of your tent to house your rucksack and cooking equipment, Redverz Gear tailored this section to fit motorbikes so riders can avoid theft, rain, sandstorms or just bears pissing on the exhaust pipe overnight.
Modder Saibot transformed an actual working motorcycle into an actual working PC, taking it from 70mph to a Core i7 920 CPU. Not to mention those LEDs, which lend it a certain boyracer appeal.
Inspired by India's "buy one get one free" mentality, designer Ramesh Gound has created a concept where two motorbike owners can join them together, creating a fancy sports car for longer drives.
Having a spare tire in your trunk is good, sure, but having two is even better. Especially when they're attached by a folding, pedal-free electric bike made by Volkswagen. A bike with a cool curvy frame. And two kickstands.
The annual Geneva Motor Show has had an early entry ahead of next week, with Honda's battery-powered 3R-C concept trike looking very fast and ever so protective of the dry head inside.
Remember, doing it yourself doesn't always mean you're making something look nicer. Sometimes you turn a perfectly good Honda motorcycle into a recumbent spearmint pod. It's worth it, though, when that pod gets 214mpg going 55mph.
No gearbox, no exhaust system, no lights sure makes for a pared-down motorbike. At least it's got an engine, however. And a nice little stand that stops it falling over when you're sitting on it in the office.
Actually, he wouldn't have, but only because in the 60s you needed a thousand-mile cable to carry a telephone around. And because he's too cool for the iPhone. Still, the batmanesque iBike Rider looks great for bikers with iPhones.
200mph in 7.887 seconds. That and liquified brains when you smash against a concrete wall is what this superbike will get you. I wish we could see the end of the run in this fiery video.
Hubless bikes are kind of like hover boards – cool, but stuck firmly in the future. That doesn't mean we can help ourselves from swooning every time we see the hint of one.
Last week we collectively drooled over the Confederate Fighter Motorcycle, a $110,000 titanium, aluminum and carbon beast that claims speeds of 190mph. This week it appeared on The Today Show. And while we don't want to ruin the punchline for anyone, let's just say that no one peels out with the bike...though Merideth…
