RZR, Teryx, Rhino – You Got Nothin’ on This

Friday, May 28, 2010
I just found the ultimate side-by-side rig. Ok, so it’s really more like a Jeep, but because it looks like a single seat up front with two-passenger capacity in the rear, I’m justifying it as a worthy blog subject. Besides it uses swingarms, and that’s a motorcycle term too. Regardless, watch the video and I don’t think you’ll really care about semantics. This thing is wicked.

World Enduro Championship Italy Video

Tuesday, May 25, 2010
The folks at Husaberg Racing bring another cool video of World Enduro Championship action. Nothing like watching our favorite inverted engines rip around the varying terrain of Italian special tests. Oriol Mena is nursing a shoulder injury so it was Joakim Ljunggren shouldering (pun intended) the load. Ljunggren finshed seventh after the two day event.

Maryland State Police stopped Anthony Graber for speeding on I-95 at a reported 100 mph – while popping a wheelie on his sportbike (which looks like a Honda CBR).
