Swedish Marines ‘Greased Lightning’ Parody Video

This may be one of the best parody videos I’ve ever seen (and it’s not just because I’m part Swedish). The flare, the sassy hip popping, the military uniforms with synchronized snapping! Oh my!

While only one motorcycle appears in this video, a Zarang ZR cruiser (manufactured in Afghanistan) it’s still right up the alley of MotoLady readers. Because, come on, we all know that synchronized dancing is amazing, and can only get better when you add in heavy artillery, lighting cigarettes with torches, and again… the sass! Something tells me these guys had a little down time in Afghanistan. 

Yet Another Reason We Should All Wear Cameras

A 25 year old Australian, Chris Porter, recorded a collision with an elderly gentleman on a helmet-mounted GoPro camera. The footage ended up saving him an insurance nightmare and thousands of dollars.

Yet another reason we should all wear video cameras like GoPro or Contour whenever we ride. With most of society automatically blaming us even when we’re the victim, we really need that visual evidence to back us up. 

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. 

Burly Brand Slammer Kit Install Video!

Thanks to Burly Brand for inviting me to help them out with their Slammer Kit install video at their headquarters in Los Angeles! The Slammer Kit lowers your Harley (Sportster, Dyna, and more…) up to two inches, and yeah, it’s super easy to install. 

Even if you don’t have a Harley, or don’t want to lower it… it’ll still be fun for you to watch me be an uberdork on camera. 

Braap on Braap… MotoLady hoodie over tshirt! It’s like a motorcycle apparel russian nesting doll, haha. 

FYI, I’ll have more hoodies soon, and still have a few tshirts left. If you want to buy one before my new ecommerce shop is done, email me at alicia (at) themotolady.com. Thanks to Wolf for being my model.

Maybe you like babies, maybe you don’t. But this little lad, Cisco from Portugal, clearly knows what he wants to do when he grows up… maybe he was born with it, maybe it’s good genes. Either way I think he’s going to be a motorcyclist when he’s older! Start ‘em young!

His dad is Christiano Fernandez (IG), a talented tattoo artist and motocross rider from Portugal. His mama, Ana Silvestre (IG), works for Monster Energy.

So if you missed the short 15 sec video of me on the Monster via the motolady instagram, here’s the uncropped version.

Oh and before you ask, the van is Jeff Wolf's 1962 Ford Econoline with bags in the back. Yup, it's a tail dragger. 

Gear: Icon Airmada Stack, Rev’It Jerez Gloves, Dainese 400GT D-Dry jacket, UglyBROS-usa Twiggy riding jeans (with armor!), Icon Sacred Tall boots.  

Took the Monster out in my new home base town of Ventura for the first time today to run some errands, made a pit stop at Surfer’s Point to check out the ocean. Why? Because I can!
Wolf helped me out and grabbed a quick 15 second video of me taking off from the compound on Pandora, if you want to check it out click here and pop over to the motolady instagram.

Video: Hitler Wants A Gixxer (For His First Bike)

Most of us are familiar with the Hitler video meme wherein the english subtitles are changed to humorous banter completely unrelated to the Nazi regime. In this parody video, Hitler wants a GSXR 650 or 1000 for his first bike, and his compadres try to talk sense to him about starting with something smaller and, well, Hitler throws a temper tantrum (naturally). “I want my 180 wheels! I want to beat Ferraris! I will have women pulling the balls out of my pants!”

Just under 4 minutes of amusingly familiar arguments. I especially love, “I have six months of dirt riding experience!”

Women Biker Gangs of Japan: Bosozoku Girls

Bosozoku means ‘violent run tribe’, the Japanese gangs of the 1980’s earned this named by the Police they were constantly fleeing from. 

In a culture known for having strict cultural norms, the Bosozoku girls are definite outlaws. They ride fast, loud (visually and physically) motorcycles, wear uniforms and tattoos, and don’t take crap from anyone.

In the video, some of the women describe getting into the scene because they were dating Bosozoku guys. They enjoyed riding but didn’t want to sit behind the man anymore, so they got their own bikes. 

This image was posted all over tumblr- I had to know where it came from. So perfect, the moving front wheel and shadow of rider superimposed on pavement. Lo- it’s a screenshot from the 6 Over preview/trailer by Wild Honey Productions.

How to Put on a Race Suit

A helpful little video from Sofi Tsingos (with her cousin’s help)… how women put on one piece leather motorcycle race suits. 

(Let’s see how long it takes for this one to get taken down too… sorry about the last post removal.)

Naked dude “Baller Boyz” does a burn out on a R6 in the middle of a busy square in Münster, Germany. Woah, woah! NSFW video that some of my readers will undoubtedly enjoy. If you don’t want to look at a naked guy, don’t watch the video. You’ve been warned. 

Word has it the authorities did not find it amusing and are looking for the helmeted moto-streaker for potential charges.

That being said, I flinch watching someone ride a motorcycle naked for obvious reasons, but since this video was removed from youtube I wanted to share. I couldn’t help but laugh.

Tribulations of Being a Motorcycle Owner with Children

Thanks to the Why We Ride website, my day started off watching this unbelievably chill dad exploring his kids’ motorcycle paint job.

"Oh, gooood. You guys got the front, too." He says. "Yeah, Daddy! Look right here!" They excitedly point at their yellow and white paint slapped across their dad’s Black Honda Goldwing.

"Sarah, you understand I am not happy about this, ok? I am amazingly calm about this." 

Quite possibly the coolest motorcycle cop ever, and perhaps the luckiest guy on a CBR600RR ever… “Ain’t you cold?” he says to the Officer sporting a short sleeve shirt on his turbo Harley police bike. Then, “Wanna race?” to which the Officer replies, “I got a turbo in this one.”

Supposedly after all the kerfluffle this viral video caused, the poor guy had to resign. Doesn’t surprise me, sounds like they’re in the south. Us American’s love horsepower, but they sure as hell don’t like being made to look stupid by their government employees either.
