    This is a short video of a motorcyclist trying to perform that hold-your-seat-and-fly-like-Superman trick when he misses grabbing the seat and really does go flying. It is hands down the coolest motorcycle trick I have ever seen and I really encourage this guy to try out for m... / Continue →

    This is the Motoped Survival Bike Black Ops Edition. It's the perfect vehicle for getting around during the zombie apocalypse. I mean, provided you can't score a tank. Or a hot air balloon. Or a boat. If you're in the woods hunting zombies though, it's perfect. If you're ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    This is the Turbospoke exhaust system for bicycles from Vat19 ($24). It consists of a durable plastic card that gets hit by your wheel's spokes (like kids used to do with baseball cards), the sound of which is amplified through the plastic exhaust pipe. The system comes with ... / Continue →

    The US government's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has commissioned two companies to build a hybrid, all-terrain stealth dirt bike with an engine that makes little to no noise. I must have one. The bears will never hear me coming. The Defense Advanced Rese... / Continue →

    This is an older video of a motorcyclist laying his head on the track in a high-speed turn. I would not do that. The only way you're getting me to lay down on a motorcycle is in a bikini for a calendar shoot. Keep going for the video, head on the track happens about 20-secon... / Continue →

    These are the custom painted Spider Man and Venom (after the jump) motorcycle helmets made by DONY Custom. They're available on eBay for $430+ depending on the style. That's a lot of money, but can you really put a price on protecting your head and looking good at the same ti... / Continue →

    This is the motorcycle helmet with an attached skull mask worn by an unknown biker attending the Harley Davidson National Rally in China. You should get totally one, that way everybody thinks you're Ghost Rider. Well, at least the people who can't tell a motorcycle from your ... / Continue →

    This is a motorcycle powered by a 150hp Rotec Radial R3600 airplane engine. It was pieced together by German mechanic Frank Ohle, who, God willing, has future plans to bolt wings to the thing and speed it straight off a cliff and into our hearts. Or a ravine. Over the cours... / Continue →

    This is the Predator inspired motorcycle helmet from NLO MOTO. It costs $780. Now I know that may seem like a lot, but that's only because it is. My head isn't worth a quarter of that. It's built on an actual motorcycle helmet so it's properly safety rated, but has been enh... / Continue →

    This is a series of nude yoga experts bodypainted and posing to look like motorcycles. The shoot was executed by creative firm i.d.e.a. as promotional material for the Progressive International Motorcycle Show. No word how many MPG's the lady-bikes get, but I'm hoping a gall... / Continue →

    This is Redditor Tattoodle's Boba Fett themed BMW motorcycle. Personally I feel like Boba would be more of a Triumph rider, but what do I know? I'm just a dillweed who spends way too much time thinking about shit that doesn't matter. How many jellybeans could fit inside a mo... / Continue →

    Because what good is a motorcycle that can't go sideways, this is an omnidirectional bike being built by students at San Jose State University. How industrious! When I was in college I didn't build anything but a tolerance to drugs and alcohol and a healthy disdain for the sy... / Continue →

    Because I'm afraid I won't stop getting the tip until I actually post it, this is a licensed set of 'The Dark Knight Rises' motorcycle leathers from UD Replicas. I have the sneaking suspicion they're the exact same ones they were offering as the 'The Dark Knight' set I posted b... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Batpod inspired motorcycle some engineering genius managed to piece together in Vietnam. It's pretty damn impressive considering it looks like it was built entirely out of parts that had fallen off other cars. Granted it's not something I'd risk MY life... / Continue →

    This is a BMW touring bike with a sidecar drum set. Why? To rock while rolling. Actually I have no idea why, probably just because they could, which seems to be the only reason anybody does anything anymore. That, or to get high. *ahem* I'm looking at you, smoked banana p... / Continue →

    Picture unrelated: not the same bike. Henry Wolf went on a four-hour motorcycle ride in September 2010 and claims he's had a constant erection ever since. Gee, maybe you have a thing for motorcycles -- you ever think about that? But now Mr. Wolf has hired a lawyer (read: bo... / Continue →
