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).
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.
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”.
It’s one thing to see stunters doing this, or racers who can get so low in corners they could scrape shoulder- but to see a retro custom like this, rider dragging hand in a parking lot… man, that just makes me all tingly inside.
