Honda CB900F Bol D'or

Retro racer

Slick videos shot on HD GoPros (complete with dubstep soundtracks) are now common place. But back in the late 80s, self shot videos were much thinner on the ground, due to expensive camcorders that were about the same size as a petrol tank and probably just as heavy too.

"I had the chance to keep going, I had the contract already there just to be signed, but I had decided that was the time, that was the opportunity to retire at the top of the hill. It's like a dream come true"

3.8-litre six-cylinder Jag engined madness

Because 'it's possible' was a good enough reason for this chap

Although it takes a while to get there, all this is building up to the ...  Continue reading

Going down at Dakar

I don't know what particular stage this was during the recent Dakar Rally, but I bet it wasn't a popular one for some of these riders.

Bike and rider flip out

As expected there's some salty language in this video, following a wheelie gone wrong. What makes this clip interesting though is that I'm pretty sure John Hopkins is the man behind the camera. Plus the front brake check at the end is comedy gold.

How hard can it be?

None of these end very well but to be fair, at least a few bikes actually make it on to the back of a truck.
