Have Some Fun – Get Out & Ride

Mike Metzger (born 19 November 1975 in Huntington Beach, California) is an American Freestyle Motocross (FMX) rider. In the 2002 X-Games he won the Freestyle and Big Air events and got second place in Step Up, earning him an estimated $100,000 in three days. In 2003 he also got first place in Big Air. On May 4, 2006, at 9:26, Metzger completed “The Impossible Jump”, doing a world record backflip over the fountains in front of Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, seen live on ESPN. He is the first person to complete a backflip over the fountains, and only the second person to ever successfully land that jump. The others to attempt the jump over Caesars Palace’s fountains include Evel Knievel, Gary Wells, and Robbie Knievel, of which only Robbie landed successfully. Not only did Metzger complete this jump whilst performing a backflip, but he also set the record for distance, landing 125 feet from the takeoff, ramp but later ending 2007 jeremy Twitch stenberg beat his record with a 160ft jump making backflip.

Have Some Fun – Power Up Your Rocket III

D&D has built the latest Show-chrome Slip-on pipes for the 2008 Triumph Touring Rocket III motorcycles. They sound great and pump up the crazy power.

At 2294cc its the worlds largest capacity production motorcycle. But, despite the impressive capacity of this amazing machine, it was designed first and foremost to be ridden. A good turning circle, seamless fuel injection and a low center of gravity combine to make maneuvering at low speed surprisingly easy.

YouTube Tuesday: 4 Wheel Motorcycle

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

From Across The Pond

KTM builds the cross bow hardcore car. Audi supplies the heart and KTM surrounds it with orange carbon fiber. It’s a European-spec machine that is coming to the US in 2009.

KTM has used its know-how building lightweight but sturdy off-road motorbikes to full effect with the Crossbow. A carbonfibre monocoque ensures flex-free rigidity and low mass, while the Audi TT’s direct-injection 2.0-litre lump is mounted transversely just ahead of the rear wheels for poised weight distribution. The two passengers are sandwiched by twin rear-mounted radiators, and VW’s DSG twin-clutch gearbox will be offered. Suspension is by double wishbones all round.

Vinnie from OCC Walks Off the Show

At his new shop Vinnie and Cody square off on scooters and race around the shop for bragging rights.

It’s been reported that Vinnie didn’t feel like he was getting enough as the Teutels have become enormously successful. They have a helicopter, boat, luxury cars, motorcycles, homes and, of course, huge egos.

So Vinnie and Cody have ventured out on their own in a business call V-Force Customs.

Vinnie was doing all the design work and the actual work anyways — he is better off without OCC.

V-Force Customs – The Wheelie Kings

Vinnie and Cody ‘work’ their scooters.

So far the V-Force boys have only had time to finish their apparel line. They have long sleeve shirts, pull over sweat shirts, women’s clothing, with different styles of hats, jackets, and accessories. No bikes yet.

Remember, it’s the Holiday time and driving is the last thing our highly motivated shoppers have on their mind.

By the way, to reduce incidents we suggest a gift certificate from Metric Thunder. They are handy and will keep you safe and snug this Holiday season.

YouTube Tueday: New Gizmos

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

‘Albert’s Helmet-Mounted Pistol’ is a patent back from 1953, when life was simple and people just wanted new hats that could blow away their adversaries. Intended to free the user’s hands (hopefully for more guns), the pistol was supposed to be fired by blowing into a tube—like blowing bubbles in milk through a straw, but you know, with more blood.

It seems like a minor oversight that the kickback may kill the participant, or at least leave their neck in severe need for a good rubbing. But even more than we’re interested in the helmet, we’d like to see the mega pistol that’s strapped on top.

Maybe we’ll pick a fight with a clown and see if he whips one out. If only mimes were strapped for real… [thebachelorguy via neatorama]
