After a long hiatus, RTS is back at it. Today, we have a regular member of the RTS Army, Tyler Livesay, doing unspeakable things as he gives all the two stroke nazis boners with his fantastical motorcycle abilities. I’ve been sitting on this one for a little while but today is the day to debut it to the BRO world. The scrub is the red headed step child of the whip, and it is nice when the relationship is distinctly noticeable. You cannot knock the classics, and this is some Jimi Hendrix type shit right here; not a whole lot to it besides throwing the bike down and the requisite panic rev that follows. Studies have shown that panic revs are actually directly correlated to a bodily release of fucks given on the track.
P.S. If you don’t understand all the “bung” references, you need to turn the volume up.
Final rating: 2/2. Every chick in the game would bang that scrub.
One of the Aussie BROs just sent this one in. I liked it. Don’t know who the kid is, and that’s probably better. No names always make cooler videos and I haven’t seen this posted anywhere yet. BRO exclusive. Enjoy.
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.
You might catch BRO on a two stroke in the near future if more of these races start popping up more often. Guess this is for some two stroke race out west that the BROs at FMF are putting on. I watched this class at Loretta’s and was pretty much looking like Tyrone Biggums in the infield because I was jonesin’ so hard to ride. Still think people who hate four strokes need to do a crossword or something to shut them the hell up.
This vid is going pretty viral in the moto world today. This basically makes two videos in a row today that display when not giving a fuck goes wrong. Pretty much nothing wrong with what the kid did, just needed a little bit more mustard on that one. He landed the previous jump way too casually, should have been bungin’ it out before he hit the ground. Always better to overshoot a jump like this, when there aren’t really any features immediately afterward. I really wish we could hear more of the chick’s reaction; she definitely flipped her shit. Like, she immediately stopped making sandwiches for the day. It was that serious.
It is a bit ironic that I am posting this now because just yesterday, some kid sent me a GoPro crash video that was way too long and it was about the last I could handle. All too often, kids submit crash videos that are 10 minutes long and I seriously never even see the crash because there is not a chance in hell that I am going to sit here and watch Joey Jr. blap around the track for 10 minutes before his epic tip over. It’s a shame because there may have been some real winners in there that will never see the light of day because that asshole doesn’t know how to edit clips in iMovie. Having said that, this video serves as an exception to the long GoPro terribleness paradigm. Probably because the kid is actually going pretty good; that builds the suspense, in a way. We are just waiting for it to happen. Just waiting and waiting and right when you think nothing is going to come to fruition, that beater ’05 CR grabs a false neutral and homeboy hits the eject button, no fucks given. Solid.
Just when you thought that we would never get to see the #69 Geico machine in action because Jimmy D has a knee that is as soft as Elton John’s submissive boyfriend, Ronnie Mac comes in to gives us all the closure that we needed and puts that 69 ripper out on the track.
We here at BROtocross are down as fuck with Ronnie Mac. I may hate goon riding, but there is a certain elegance to Mac’s panic rev, a distinct note of je ne sais quoi to his endo that makes it real poetry. It is as if Jesus created Bud Light and God then said “Let there be Ronnie Mac”. If you are going to do it, do it right. All you joes out there that send me goon riding videos, this is the standard that has been set for you. If you can look at your video honestly and it does not measure up, don’t waste your time. If you don’t throw down hundred foot jumps with the front end at about 5:30, you are not going to make the cut.
One of the BROs just sent me this video and you know what? I thought it was great. There’s nothing really cool happening, just some dude riding at some sand pit near a river; it’s magical as fuck. This video is a prime example of less-is-more photography. Very subtle editing, it is a form of realist cinema that really invites the viewer to make his own assumption of what the significance of the video is. It is not shoving the video down your throat. This is the friendly, yet supportive mini dad of MX videos, rather than the Nazi, Tony-esque mini dad that makes you cry and has fun doing it.
