Japanese Motorcycle Revving Out A Song Competition

August 24, 2017

These are a couple videos of Japanese Bōsōzoku motorcyclists competing to see who can rev out the sweetest tunes on their bikes (I could have easily won on my bicycle but I rock spokey dokes AND a vintage baseball card on my back wheel). The first video has another audio track added to help accentuate their songs, but the second video is just the raw audio. I was really hoping somebody was going to fall over on their bike, but nobody did. I guess this isn't their first rodeo. My first rodeo? A bull fell in love with me and wanted to follow me home. "It was trying to gore you." Love is strange.

Keep going for the videos.

Thanks to Rapscallion, who tried entering the contest with an electric bike and was immediately disqualified and ostracized.

    They are SO cool.
    I want to be just like them when I grow up.

    I expected something a little more musical.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That's really impressive. It's even more impressive than singing F1 engines. Sure, the F1 engines have pretty incredible control. But these guys are using brake, clutch and throttle to change the pitch.

    I bet they have happy girl friends.

    I assume that's what that extended rear seat back is for... they must be very considerate. Harley riders usually just have a shirt that says, "If you can read this, the bitch fell off." Classy.

    I was thinking more of their fine wrist and forearm control and endurance.

    What's up with Asian people and face masks?

  • Bling Nye

    Primarily started due to SARS and avian influenza concerns, I believe.

    But also, it's considered polite to wear one in public if you have a cold. It's worn not just to help you from getting sick, it's to help prevent other people getting sick from you.

    It may have transcended into simple fashion accessory at this point.

    Lol, so ignorant but you think you know everything. Ever since the crackdown on Japanese biker gangs in the late 90s, wearing a face mask whilst riding a bike if you're in a gang is de facto, so the police can't identify you. They use the etiquette as an excuse so that cops can't harass them for wearing masks, try wearing a face mask like that in the west, see how quickly a cop tells you to take it off and asks for your name. Wearing masks in public is generally illegal.
