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