Russians record everything, especially in traffic. So, with that said, if you’re going to get in an altercation with a fellow motorists, there’s a better than even chance that if you get your ass beat, someone will post it to YouTube.
From the way it appears in this video, the guy on the big dresser, (a Goldwing perhaps) is riding the center lane beside another vehicle and tries to cut in front, or split the lane and gets into a verbal altercation with the auto driver, who jams the biker into the opposite lane, causing him to drop his bike. Once it escalates to this point, the biker does a little dance on the hood of the Toyota, resulting in a few punches being thrown. We say a few, because this fight was shorter than the 90 second knockout bout between Mike Tyson and Michael Spinks.
But at least the biker has his club brother there to help him… oh wait.. sorry bro.. I have a bad back.. I can’t get involved..
This YouTube video, captured by a traffic camera and uploaded by the Excelsior Springs MO Police department shows 20-year-old Britt Hamilton striking the front end of an SUV when it turned left in front of him at the intersection of Crown Hill Road and Highway 10 on May 9th.
After seeing his video, Hamilton says he feels lucky to be alive.
“I hit, and then went numb for a second. Then I started to feel pain,” he said. “I had a green light. I guess she got scared and slammed on the brakes,” he said.
“My wrist is swollen. My lip is messed up a little bit. I got a little knot on my leg,” Hamilton said. “I’m surprised I didn’t get a broken bone or something.”
Excelsior Springs police said the driver who hit the motorcyclist had a learner’s permit.
Hamiliton’s fiancee and his 10 month old baby girl was in the car right behind him when the accident occurred.
Ryno Motors wants to be the motorcycle of the future, or rather the unicycle of the future. The genesis of the Ryno one-wheeled electric motorcycle can be traced back to a moment when Chris Hoffman’s daughter asked if he could build something like what she saw in an episode of Dragon Ball. You can ride the Ryno sitting down or standing up and right now the top speed is capped at 10mph and the effective range for the electric bike is 10 miles.
What do you think? When the technology reaches the point to increase the speed, safety and range of this vehicle, will you own one?
Most brands don’t give you a full fledged sales pitch at the demo rides. Indian, on the other hand, takes advantage of the opportunity to inform their prospective customers of the benefits and features of the brand. As the model offering expands, it’s not going to be something they will be able to continue to do, but kudos to the marketing staff for doing it while they can. As you can see in the video, it’s informative and designed to sell the value of owning the Indian over other brands. Additionally, the presentation does a good job of explaining why the bike feels so well balanced (right side drive) and how Polaris used the latest technology to enhance the ride experience.
Motorcycle patrolmen know the risks of working in traffic, but it seems this patrol man forgot the rule of size. If you’re smaller than everything else on the roadway, you’d better learn to be quicker. Graphic content.
WARNING! Graphic Video of three different dash cams from Russian drivers who caught this inexplicable motorcycle accident on video. What makes this so crazy is there’s no reason for the motorcycle operator to do what he apparently did.
