This photo has been going around for the past week and even though I have no idea who it is and I’m pretty sure it’s a couple years old, it’s never too late for an RTS. A lot of what makes a good scrub is showmanship. Every racer knows that a scrub has its purposes as far as speed goes, but really, a lot of the reason that you do it is because it makes you look cool and makes women want your shit in their area. A distinct aura of pizzazz can be the difference between a modest smile bar turn and a panty-removing mega scrub. This kid has pizzazz for days; leg out, skidplate above seat, and in the middle of a look back to let the camera know how awesome he is. Probably had this shit on rev limiter the whole time, too. It may not make any difference at all as far as speed is concerned, but it definitely sends the signal that you are a testosterone-driven alpha male ninja and that is all that anyone really cares about. It’s all a mind game in moto.
I give it a hard 2/2 because any woman with any level of self-respect (preferably none) would get down with this scrub.
P.S. – This is Europe all the way. At least 3 dead giveaways in the photo.
The BirdFish crew is at it again, whomping it up all over Europe. Seriously though, between my computer sounding like it was contracting AIDS and the pseudo-gay shots of dudes stapling each other in the ass, the whips and the savage inner lip tattoo were worthy of a blog post. Remember kids, nothing says “no fucks given” like having needles inside of you.
Update: Here’s the link to the video: http://vimeo.com/50286668. Apparently those French fucks won’t let anyone embed it. Fucking Europe.
Had a bet going that if the US lost the Des Nations, then I had to feature a couple of Euro vids each week. Figured I should at least get one in before I welch on that. Whole video is in French but no one cares about interviews anyway.
The UK 2-stroke championships were going off this past weekend and between breaks for tea and not shooting guns, they were doing their thing killing premix and the environment. Two strokes are supposed to be bad for the environment, right? Don’t care, fuck the environment. Never done anything for me anyway.
I believe it was Winston Churchill who said it best – “That shit was classy as fuck”. Piano on the soundtrack, colors all instagrammy and shit. Felt like I should have been sipping a fine Brandy by the fire while my servants performed a delightful jaunt in the background while watching this one. The BROs in Finland do it right when they aren’t speaking their nonsensical language.
I really enjoyed this video, and that’s about all there is to say. I wish the soundtrack was “Highway to the Dangerzone”, but you can’t win ‘em all. Seriously, what was the effects budget on this project? The pyro and the fake tits had to breach the $10,000 mark. Ok, I’m going to Southwick now.
This is how I like to open up a Monday. Once again this is a truly boneriffic photo of French ripper Valentin Teillet. I already knew this kid had a super pronounced style, but this is opening my eyes to a completely different side of his swagger on the bike. This just looks effortless, like he’s too cool to actually try shit; keeping it casual because he doesn’t give a fuck about giving a fuck. It’s like he just generated the ability to do this out of thin air, didn’t put in any hours practicing, because practicing is for people who aren’t already awesome.
Somehow I am just seeing this video even though it is years old and has almost 350,000 views. This is the thing about riding trails that I just hate – it can all go so wrong so fast. My man is just casual cruising, figures he can hit whatever feature this is and continue on, then the next he knows he is 20 feet in the air, sans bike. This guy clearly had no fucks to give about anything. He was pissed about something, because judging from the way that he majestically flew through the air before getting annihilated by the Earth, he should have been able to tell that hitting this shit fourth gear wide open was not a good call. And since this is a pro event by the looks of it, the guy knew what he was doing. He just didn’t care. NFG for days.
Sidecar swag on sidecar swag on sidecar swag. Interlaced as a motherfucker and still the hottest fire on the internet. The instant I clicked on this video, I figured there was something here. Before anything even came up on screen, I knew this was going to be epic. Most sidecar videos are lamer than dead guy boners but this one really stole the show. I literally fell out of my chair when I witnessed the freestyle maneuver at 1:16. Balls of steel on these motherfuckers. I feel like the secret of steeze in sidecar is all in the monkey, and this dude is the Barcia of sidecar monkeying. Setting up for turns off the side of that shit in the air like a boss, not giving a single fuck the whole time. It’s like they say, if you’re hot, you’re hot.
And since I know this question is going to come up, I will answer it now: Sidecar moto > quads.
