Not enough preload
THIS motorcyclist in China was pulled over by police when he was caught carrying an entire minivan on the back of his bike.

But not necessarily for the right reasons
WE can’t quite put our finger on what drew our attention to the eBay listing for this ‘stunning bike’. Is it the double bubble screen? The upside fork legs? The Battlax swinging-arm?

In the red corner we have a Marushin 777 Samura, winner of 5 Sharp safety rating stars. In the blue corner we have a Chinese RZO. Who will win?
