Video: five minutes at Rossi's ranch

Get ready to be jealous

WE think we just saw heaven.

But if we were still on top in MotoGP after all these years, we'd expect four tracks of our own, too. 

The sweetest Suzaki we've ever seen

This is the bike we've been waiting for

Honda 'Paper' advert

Another clever ad from Honda

WE wouldn't normally feature an advert in the Viral section, but this is Honda's latest, and as far as ads go, they're usually quite good.

Could that be because he's the only 1974 H2R owner to have been given a £41,000, 326hp, track-only Ninja H2R to go with ...  Continue reading

 

Video: follow the bear?

Nope, we’re not sure why a bear is riding a Ducati Scrambler either?

WE published a video of a real Russian encounter between bikes and a bear a few weeks ago but this one is slightly harder to fathom.

It looks like a viral ad – unless we’re mistaken and bears in Russia have really taken to riding Ducati Scramblers ...  Continue reading
