And we thought only car drivers were crazy. This guy, somewhere in China, crashes his scooter multiple times before driving and falling into a hole. Apparently, he wasn’t seriously injured, but he defo needs to get his head checked!
Well, not life-threatening mishaps or the ‘Top 11′ crashes in the world, but look at ‘em from the lighter side, and they’re pretty funny, while some are downright stupid. As the uploader mentions, the third video takes the cake. What do you think?
Epic jumps in RZR ATVs in the deserts of Dubai. Oh, and a few cool jumps and rollovers as well for good measure. Looks like awesome fun!

Accidents, whether on feet or on machines, are not a pleasant thing. There are a good number of nasty videos on the interwebs; but this one, by YouTube user rnickeymouse, is a different take on the theme. Reverse slow-mo people? Watch it and let us know. Ride safe in the meantime.
These days, Youtube can teach you anything from how to make poached eggs to how to launch your own space shuttle and everything in between. We’ve seen countless motorcycle crash videos as well, some mild, some wild. What this Youtube user, who goes by the name of Rnickeymouse, has done is to compile a couple of crashes, and make a near-4 minute video that plays backwards. In slow motion. Do NOT try this (the stunts of course) at home! Continue reading →
Motorcycle rallies are stupidly dangerous. You could get the wrong idea by watching them, as most of the riders are so skilled and so much on top of their game that falls and injuries are rare. But don’t kid yourself, and to back this story up, check out the following video. Sam Longson managed to ride perfectly for the first 520 miles of the gruelling 2012 Vegas to Reno rally, only to come across some “loose gravel” (like he was riding on tarmac before that).

When we ride out there, we’re exposed to, well, about anything and everything you can possibly think of. Climate is the first thing that comes to our mind, followed by roads, fellow motorists, unseen obstacles and such. But seriously, styrofoam? Well some dic***** truck driver forgot to strap his load, leaving boxes of styrofoam flying on the freeway. One of such boxes struck the rider and took him down, clipping the other in the process. No serious injuries luckily. Be safe, and avoid trailing trucks. Continue reading →
French freestyle stunter Jorian Ponomareff wanted to do something different with his latest video. He wanted to get closer to nature, performing his signature stunts in environments including a beach, river, fields and even a quarry. And the results? Nice in visual terms, but limited to just 20-foot square platforms placed at the locations, resulting in lots of wheelie spins. Continue reading →
If you bought the newest Ducati superbike in the US recently, the gorgeous Panigale 1199, be sure to visit your dealer sometime in the near future to check if there’s anything wrong. Apparently, the latest issues are really serious and can affect the braking system and the swingarm pivot points – do we have to emphasize that any of these faults can lead to a catastrophic crash and injury to the rider???
