Robyn Diamond pulls off a spreader with a sassy smile. Being only a little familiar with stunt riding terms, I thought this was a highchair wheelie.
However, Tice from XDL learned me right, "If your legs are behind your hands and you’re spreading your legs it’s a spreader. If your legs are between your hands over the front of the triples it’s a highchair."

Tigerman 2: A Man, A Moped, A Cape (video)

Capes caught in wheels, baby burnouts, moped stunting, and explosions. This video has it all… and more. Tigerman 2 features a stunter named, you guessed it, Tigerman… and his trusty moped that takes quite a beating. 

The whole video is almost one big blooper reel, and it’s perfect that way. 

Robyn Diamond takes her friend Belinda Kwan for a little ride on her Kawasaki 636 stunt bike with trellis frame. That would be an interesting view to say the least.

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.

Men love ladies who can RIDE!

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.

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.
