Backflipping A 1200cc Harley… Did He Land It?

Chances of backflipping a Harley Davidson motorcycle of stock variety (and landing it for that matter) is a tall order. 

Back in 2008, Chuck Carothers went for it with his 1200cc Harley Davidson Sportster at the FMX Gladiator Games.

Darius Glover: Paralyzed MotoCross Racer

We’ve all been told or experienced ourselves just how dangeous it is to ride a motorcycle. If you were in a major accident, would you ride again? What if you couldn’t use your legs?

At 15 years old, Darius Glover heard the doctors tell him, “you’ll never walk again and you’ll never ride again.” Regardless of losing the use of his legs from a motorcycle accident, he rides motocross again. He looked at that doctor and said, “you’re wrong.” If that doc doubted him, wow how wrong he was. 

Darius went on to qualify for Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross Championships in Florida- he traveled hundreds of miles and was turned down because of his “disability”.

Over 15 of us Rockers (check out the website) planned to attend VME’s Isle of Man TT, but we all had different schedules and needs for getting up there. Most folks trailered their not-so-reliable vintage bikes while the left over few rode. Here’s video of us trusty six all riding by the truck+trailer on the freeway (we just happened to pass them, how strange…)!

I think I’m pretty obvious… the lady in red.

Rockers NW bring an extra slice of awesome to the VME Isle of Vashon TT event! See me? I’m the one with the ridiculous non-vintage bike. 
Justin and I rode up last night after work- arrived in Port Orchard at Noel’s house where we would be staying for the night. (Thanks again, man!) Went out to grab some grub and then passed out, woke up five hours later and headed to the ferry. Met up with these Hooligans and stormed the gates! 
More photos (and GoPro video) later… in the mean time you can check out more photos of the Rockers.

Rockers NW happy hour after Tuesday Night Coffee (a weekly event during summer). Some of my absolute favorite people are in these photos!

Was very proud to be riding with two other motoladies (out of 11… that ain’t bad)!

This movie has got to be hilarious.
