Harley Crash and Save

Harley Crash

Harley Crash doing a radical wheelie. They should call the rider catman as he bailed out and landed on his feet.

I have nothing really negative to say about this video because at least the motorcycle driver was smart enough to practice stunts in what looks to be a warehouse area versus the public streets. Plus, he was smart enough wear a full face helmet.

I guess if I was intent on practicing motorcycle stunt riding I would’ve have also had set of Kevlar jeans, protective gloves and definitely a good set of boots that would protect my ankles. Read more »

Harley-Davidson 2016 CVO Pro Street Breakout

Harley-Davidson 2016 CVO Pro Street Breakout review vs 2014 CVO

Looks like Harley-Davidson 2016 CVO is incorporating more and more of the chopper look into their production bikes.
It’s nice to see that they finally got their engine up to a 110 and the rear tire up to a 240! I also like the fact that on this model they got rid of their huge speedometer control setup that was in the middle of a lot of their gas tanks.

Walk around and Start up of the 2016 Pro Street Breakout compared directly with the 2014 CVO Breakout. The 2016 CVO Pro Street Breakout is a mid-model-year 2016 release (january). The Pro Street Introduces new features such as inverted forks and dual disc brakes to the Breakout model.

Currently, I’m writing an 2006 American Ironhorse Texas Chopper that has an S&S 111 engine (actually they had three options for engines from 111 117 or 124) and a nice wide 280 rear tire.  Plus, the Texas Chopper came standard with two front disc breaks. So, it just took Harley about 10 years to start to incorporate some of these features into their bikes. Read more »

Motorcycle Accident Lane-splitting California

Motorcycle Accident Lane-splitting California

This is in California where motorcycle spitting is legal. Yes, its legal in California because its statistically safer than getting crunched between to cars.

In a total unbiased opinion, I think it’s the cars fault. he was illegally changing lanes out of the carpool into a pretty tight space (no reason to do that). Even if this wasn’t in CA, I still think it’s the cars fault. If it is in Ca then it is 100 percent the cars fault
Lane splitting has been proven to be safer. It keeps you out of possibility to get rear ended, which end up causing more injuries than crashes like this. There is evidence to this. In my opinion the rider was splitting a bit too fast, but that car obviously didnt look before they turned.

Motorcycle rider comments:

Drove this freeway every day for five years.
The orange crush.

Cars cannot pass the double yellow! Read more »

Motorcycle Spike Air Cleaner Installation

Motorcycle Spike Air Cleaner Installation

This motorcycle Spike air cleaner installation was done on my 2006 American iron horse Texas chopper. This bike has an S&S hundred and 11 in.³ engine and an S&S carburetor.

My prior motorcycle was also a 2006 Texas chopper and on that one I changed out the standard air cleaner for a single Spike air cleaner.

From my new 2006 Texas chopper I decided originally to put on a big dog K-9 stock air cleaner because I thought it looked much better than the original iron horse air cleaner. Read more »

Live Motorcycle Crash on TV

Live Motorcycle Crash

Crash-proof Motorcycle crash on live TV

It’s not meant to be funny. It’s highlighting the fact that no matter how much technology you are using it can’t replace common sense. Hence the rider didn’t look to the right before pulling off. I thought it was pretty obvious. Many believe that this video is a total fake just to get views and to try to go viral.

 

Did anyone notice near the end of the video where the guy with the black curly hair walked towards the woman and the downed cyclist? Notice on the white of the truck by the guys head, there’s a shifting black orb. Bad video editing? I think that truck was CGI, along with the motorcyclist. The motorcycle also appears to be overly blurred. He wasn’t going fast enough for that. Also, the shattered glass from the tail light mysteriously disappears after it hit the ground. After Effects?
