World Record Back Flip

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.

YouTube Tuesday: New Rocket III Exhaust Pipe

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 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: Japanese Candid Camera

Who Thinks Up This Stuff?

This is one of the funniest videos. It’s from a Japanese prank show – I think. You will not need to know the language to get the gist of it. These guys put their money in and 10 seconds later they end up in a very cold place.

It doesn’t get much better than this. If this was filmed in the good ole USA they would be sued and bankrupt in a heart beat.

YouTube Tuesday: 4 Wheel Motorcycle

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.

YouTube Tuesday: The Car Chase From “Bullitt”

Arguably One of the Best Car Chases on Film!

The ultimate road battle between Ford and Dodge! This car case from the 1968 classic, “Bullitt” starring Steve McQueen, set the gold standard for car chases over the next 40 years.

These two American Muscle cars were high on horsepower and low on handling. That makes the stunt work throughout the streets of San Francisco even more spectacular. See if you can pick out the make and model of motorcycle that gets tangled up in the oncoming high speed chase.

YouTubeTuesday: Don’t Get Distracted – A PSA from Metric Thunder

Situational Awareness

We all know that it is dangerous out there, especially if you are not paying attention. Situational awareness is the key phrase in this video. As you will see, the rider is alert to what is happening in his peripheral vision but fails to connect to what is in front of him.

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.
