May We All Crash So Gracefully!

The first thing that springs to mind is Jackie Chan has executed another of his awesome insane and death defying stunts.  However the video below is just a regular biker going about his business, until he crashes SPECTACULARLY!

It’s uncertain if the rider actually has super powers or is just a Batman level athlete, either way he has at speed cartwheeled through the air, according to witnesses landed on his feet, and as you can see swiftly comes back to survey his destroyed bike.  Not too sure how you’d practice ‘crash maneuvers’ such as this, RTWW would like to state, don’t try this at home 🙂

Bikers, Defend Yourself in Traffic!

One of the most popular stories here on RTWW in recent times was our feature on The Motorcyclist’s Ultimate Solution for Tail-gating Car Drivers which featured the bike mounted flamethrower..

So today for a bit of Friday fun we’re featuring other ahhh ‘self-defence’ motorcycle accessories and a couple of classic bikes that could help you tackle road-rage addicted, cell phone using, coffee drinking, blinkered, or asleep car drivers.

First up accessories…

An old classic, the simple addition of a machine gun to your sidecar..

A more modern alternative for clearing slow drivers from your lane..

Straight from Q branch, a very James Bond inspired bike mounted missile system..

Stand up for your right to bear arms… on your handlebars..

For the biker confident in the Force, the lightsaber pannier mount..

Carry your own Terminator for road safety purposes..

Ride alongside this man..

.. and finally some bikes to protect yourself with..

The Bat-Pod – Twin canons, grappling hook system, and it just looks so bloody dangerous people will avoid you..

Streethawk – Fairing mounted particle beam, machine guns, 300mph top speed, and a rocket boosted ‘back flip’ facility to allow you to jump back over the tail-gating swine behind you and take him out.

and when gadgetry fails, or ammo runs out, just ride over the idiots!

Have a great long weekend, and Ride Safe! : )

Want to look ‘Super’ on your bike?

Okay I’m (Editor Nick) letting my geek self out just a little here but it’s all good fun and still motorcycle related I assure you.  Motorcycle suits makers Universal Designs create replica leather suits of famous film costumes, specifically superhero costumes.  Previously they released a limited editon run of their suit based on Batman’s armour featured in the movie ‘The Dark Knight’.

Their latest re-creation is of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine character from the X-Men series of films, which while not as flamboyant as the Batman suit, still looks pretty good.

However what I’m really looking forward to is the currently under development suits based on Walt Disney Pictures TRON sequel, TRON LEGACY….

Forget your yellow high-vis vest, who the hell could miss you lit up like this!
