Canadian drag racing champion Ethan Barkley likes his bike wired tight. His 2006 Gixxie Thou is wired tighter than Dick's hatband. Running a professional drag race bike requires a certain attention to detail that eludes the average person. A certain desire for endless repetition, note-taking, control adjusting, and the odd maniacal high speed pass or two It's a singular desire for speed, completely devoid of any creature comforts - such as turns. It is as pure as it is mental. And we mean that in the kindest way.

Jason Britton - Anatomy of a Stuntbike
Stunt bikes are the pariahs of the motoworld. Most of their kind are born
only after the complete demise of their former beautiful selves. Mechanized
zombies prowling the parking lots and after-hours intersates of Anytown,
USA. And we love them all. We love them for their purpose-crafted
hideousness. We love them for their 'rattitude' and primered plastics. We
are endeared to them because they speak volumes about the street struggle.
But theirs is not the first struggle. Many years ago there was
another battle taking place around the sprawl of the LA basin. Its champion
was Jason Britton. Piloting Gixxers and TL1000Ss, he helped lay the
groundwork for a paradigm shift in the sportbike world. He changed the way
certain, more progressive manufacturers viewed their engineering and
marketing programs. Ultimately, he helped change the fundamentals of what
was possible aboard a sportbike.
When it comes to his personal bike setup, Jason will be the first to admit
that he is particular. Very Particular. Whether it's his stunt bikes or his
stable of roadrace and dirt bikes, setup is everything to Jason. And
appearance. Maintaining a clean and professional bike is a huge part of
Jason's marketing plan for his No Limit freestyle exhibition team. His
bikes feature a slew of the industry's tastiest components. If a part
exists that can help elevate his game, you can bet that you'll find it on
Jason's bike. Oddly enough, for a rider that spares no expense when
outfitting his ride, Jason runs completely stock suspension components. He
claims that the factory Kawi suspension is bomber quality stuff and capable
of handling the abuse that his riding levies on the bike. After four years
of watching him punish his Ninjas, we believe him. Check out the video for
a sampling of Jason and Eric Hoenshell putting their bikes to the test.

The sequel to the Icon original video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle -
Nick 'Apex' Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate,
Ernie Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed
Triples - built by Roaring Toyz for the sole purpose of going sideways.
Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has
led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. Low traffic, perfect
asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with
their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have
had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle
to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and
he's got a license to use it...

Heavy Metal Tow Truck [S7 Ep. 2-1]
Today on GEARZ, project Heavy Metal is back as Stacey rolls the old
International cab over truck into the shop so he can outfit it with a
vintage Holmes dual wrecker bed. It is auto recycling at its best as the
big truck continues to come together using parts from a junkyard wrecker,
swap meet vintage beer kegs, and even some new aftermarket parts. If you've
always thought that you had to spend big money to build a unique vehicle,
this "Heavy Metal" truck will not only change your mind, but probably have
you digging through old junkyards and checking out pastures in hopes of
finding a vintage truck project of your own! That's a typical
reaction...and that's typical for GEARZ!

STUPID: MJ A TESTE POUR VOUS LE STUNT ET LE DRIFT ( VIDEO OFFICIELLE MOTO JOURNAL )
Moto Journal a testé pour vous le stunt. On sait, c'est pas bien sérieux.
Mais ne reculant devant aucun sacrifice, et surtout pas devant une fracture
du col du fémur ressoudant fort mal à mon âge, la WebTV Moto Journal a
quand même décidé de tester le stunt ET le drift. Pourquoi? 1.Par
idiotie.2. Par pur défi. 3. Par égo.4. Mais aussi par curiosité et pour
comprendre ce qui pousse tous ces acrobates à tomber amoureux d'un parking
de supermarché au point d'y passer des heures à tourner en rond, à
répéter la même figure en se cassant la gueule toutes les 30 secondes.
De ces 48 heures passées en compagnie de deux top riders (Matt Mekatrix et
Julien Welsch), j'en ai tiré 8 leçons que je vous livre in extenso et in
peto, sur la roue arrière! Feu comme ils disent dans le STEUNTEU!

Supermoto Police Chase
The cop was lit up with sirens on the way to an emergency. The rider with
his music blasting, unaware pulled out in front of the cop rippin down the
Snake. The cop was just a short distance behind the rider so everyone
thought it was a police chase. Even funnier, the rider pulled over to come
up for a second run and the cop continued on. Everyone thought the rider
hid as the cop passed. When the rider came back he had no idea what was
