THE DAY NORTH KOREA FIRED A MISSILE AT THE SR 71 BLACKBIRD

The SR-71 Blackbird still stands as the fastest aircraft ever built – at least among those that took off and landed under their own power – and is the only US spy aircraft to make it through it’s entire career without a single craft being lost to enemy fire. However, just because it wasn’t shot down doesn’t mean the enemy didn’t …

PEOPLE WHO MERGE ONTO THE FREEWAY AT THE LAST MINUTE ARE DOING IT RIGHT!

It’s something we all learned, or should have learned, in Driver’s Ed in high school, but there are plenty of people out there who have a really hard time merging into traffic on the freeway. While it seems like common sense to most of us, I have literally seen countless people cause major headaches for other drivers around them because …

THE STOCK HARLEY-DAVIDSON “ROCKER” CLUTCH IS PICTURED! I’ve seen the term “suicide shifter” used in describing a plain old ordinary tank shift. Simple ignorance allows that term to be used. There is no such thing as a “suicide shifter.” Nobody has ever died because of using “hand shift.” There is however such a thing as a “Suicide Clutch.” The term …

HARLEY DAVIDSON DEATH WOBBLE LOOKS TERRIFYING!

A “death wobble” is basically a high speed oscillation that causes the bike to quickly jerk back and forth, eventually reaching the point of causing a crash if the rider isn’t able to slow down enough to bring the bike back under control. While they’ve been known to occur, for the most part they’re isolated incidents caused by mechanical failure or a “perfect storm” …

As these motorcycle riders were heading down the highway together, they caught something pretty wild on camera that might just have you wondering what this police officer was up to.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HARLEY DAVIDSON AND HAYABUSA

When you take a look at a Harley-Davidson and a Hayabusa motorcycle, you obviously know that these are two very different beasts indeed. While the Harley might have been designed for something along the lines of cruising through the streets, playing a little bit of music, and having a nice, smooth ride, on the other hand, the Busa was definitely designed for speed. Make …

WATERSKIING BEHIND A BOAT GOING 135MPH… THESE GUYS ARE NUTS!

We love speed. It’s even in our name and permeates everything we do, but this may be where we have to draw the line, at least as far as something we’re willing to try. These guys are absolutely pushing the limits and while we might not try it ourselves, we damn sure enjoy watching them do it! What happens when …
