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

Motorcycles and an unexpected love story- my eyes welled up with tears at the end and simply because the content in this video is everything I love.

Get to Know your MotoLadies: Leah Petersen

Leah Petersen (aka Leah Stunts) is a stuntin’ motolady with heaps of talent and an equal amount of follow through. Not only does she wrench on her own bikes and manage her own social media, but she’s also the creative director and co-owner at Stuntbums. Hell, she even rides for Icon, and looks pretty amazing while doing it.

Remembering exactly when I first came across Leah’s photos is practically impossible, but I know it was through Icon. Her spread eagle wheelie photo in Hella boots (the wedgy heeled ones) definitely caught my attention. Now it’s time for a little bit of Leah wisdom.

Icon wheelie moto lady!

Icon wheelie moto lady!

This is awesome! Icon’s Jason Britton made a loving Mother’s Day message the stunter way!
