Motorcyclist Crashes, Flips And Sticks A Perfect Landing On A Car's Roof

Video: If there is such thing as a perfect motorcycle accident, this might be it: a motorcyclist crashes full speed into a car that’s changing lanes. That’s bad.

This Motorbike Uses Bacon For Fuel

Biofuel was to be the saviour for our petrol-powered needs and while development is ongoing, it has yet to take over the world, with LPG and electric vehicles proving more popular alternatives.

Harley-Davidson Australia Talks Its New, 'Exhilarating' Electric Motorbike

“It’s a purely exhilarating motorcycle to ride. It sounds awesome — think jet fighter landing on an aircraft carrier.” The just-announced Harley-Davidson Project LiveWire is H-D’s first electric motorbike, and it’s a huge departure from business as usual for the 111-year-old company.


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 aeroplane 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 in the middle of all this?


Reckless Biker Escapes Death Five Times In Just A Few Seconds

Those Russian kids may be crazy but, if they fall from the top of those buildings and towers, it will be their problem. One day, they may make a mistake, fall, splat against the ground, and that would be it. This reckless biker, however, is playing with his life and the life of others, at least missing five collisions in this video.


Oh My, Motorcyclist Just Misses Crashing Into A Horse On The Road

Video: 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 manoeuvres around it — thankfully, for her and the horse’s sake — but is obviously shaken up as her life probably flashed before her eyes.


Monster Machines: 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-fibre SP7.

Here's An Insane Motorcycle Crash From The Motorcyclist's POV

Well, this is absolutely terrifying. This helmet cam footage shows a motorcyclist crashing his bike at 225km/h, hitting the car in front of him and having his body catapulted and spun for what seems like an eternity on the road. Amazingly, he survived the crash. Incredible. Unbreakable.


With A Kevlar-Lined Shirt, You're Not Completely Screwed In A Crash

We 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 like a normal work shirt but probably won’t shred like toilet paper in an asphalt encounter.
