Wall of death, huh? Try this German silodrome… it’s suspended high above the ground and hoisted using pullies. Absolutely amazing.

There are a ton of comments I could make on this photograph, but I think I’ll leave it at… This. Is. Awesome. 
Regardless of all else you have to admit a motorcycle cop doing a stoppie on his Police Issue BMW motorcycle is pretty fantastic. 
Note: The officer performed this demonstration on a closed course, was on his own time, received permission from the agency, and BMW Motorcycles of Ventura County covered the cost of a new rear tire (source).

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. 

Imagine my delight checking my email in the morning to find these shots from Ms. Stunts- some of which have not yet been seen by the likes of the internet!

Beautiful Leah (Stunts) Petersen and her brand spankin’ new stunt bike- a 2013 Kawasaki zx6r Ninja 636 in leopard print livery. Complete with a matching Icon Airmada Sauvetage helmet and Catwalk gloves.

Looks like Leah Stunts and I have more than just loving motorcycles in common these days- lots of late nights in the garage.

Viva Knievel! movie poster from the 1977 action film.

Viva Knievel! movie poster from the 1977 action film.

Earlier today I posted the gif of a guy jumping his dirtbike into a river. Fabian on facebook pointed me to the source video- a clip from StuntFreaks Killing IT movie… the dirtbike base jump from 40 meters (that’s about 131 feet for us stupid Americans). 

Antti Pendikainen- "I’m planning to drive with the bike, from there to there, as fast as possible. And try not to fuck up. And at the end come down with my base parachute.

This certainly brings new meaning to the saying… “FULL THROTTLE ‘TIL YOU SEE GOD”.

Check it out. 

No idea what this madness is from but… WHO JUMPS A DIRTBIKE INTO A RIVER?! UPDATE: See the 130ft/40m MotoCross Base Jump video here.
Insane.
(If you’re on your phone you might not be able to see the gif.)

Jessica Maine mid-stunt. Girls… motorcycles… girls that can ride the hell out of motorcycles. WINNING. 
My bad- sometimes the internet leads you astray. This is actually stunt rider Angela Bogdanova, not Jessica Maine. Thanks to LeahStunts for the correction!
