Tron Light Bike ( Lithium Powered )
Gotta admit, as a Milwaukee kid there is something about the throaty roar
of a Harley Davidson that warms the cockles. But the all-electric Light
Cycle modeled after the machines in Tron makes a head-snapping case for
It is the creation of Parker Brothers Choppers out of Texas and Evolve
Motorcycles, a made-in-America startup building electric scooters that are
actually a zippy good time. Since the latest Lithium ion batteries are so
small (thanks, cell phone engineers!), motorcycle designers can go nuts
with new concepts and this $55,000 baby is proof.
But the Parker Brothers still love their internal combustion, so we also
checked out their grown-up Green Machine, a modern spin on the old Big
Wheel rival built around a Harley Davidson engine. Check it out.

Electric Tron Lightcycle is Street Legal
Parker Brothers Choppers is making the dreams of many "Tron" fans come true
with their design of the new Electric Tron Lightcycle. The bike is powered
by an electric motor and lithium ion batteries. It'll glide for 100 miles
before needing a recharge. Maureen Aladin has the details.

Airless tire test Humvee vs Hummer
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Non-pneumatic tires (NPT), or Airless tires, are tires that are not
supported by air pressure. They are used on some small vehicles such as
riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. They are also used on heavy
equipment such as backhoes, which are required to operate on sites such as
building demolition, where tire puncture is likely. Tires composed of
closed-cell polyurethane foam are also made for bicycles and wheelchairs.
The main advantage of airless tires is that they cannot go flat, but they
are far less common than air filled tires.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling resistance and provide much
less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires. Other
problems for airless tires include dissipating the heat buildup that occurs
when they are driven. Airless tires are often filled with compressed
polymers (plastic), rather than air.
Michelin is currently developing an integrated tire and wheel combination,
the "Tweel" (derived from "tire" and "wheel," which, as the name "Tweel"
suggests, are combined into one new, fused part), that operates entirely
without air. Michelin claims its "Tweel" has load carrying, shock
absorbing, and handling characteristics that compare favorably to
conventional pneumatic tires. Automotive engineering group of mechanical
engineering department at Clemson University is developing a low energy
loss airless tire with Michelin through the NIST ATP project.
Resilient Technologies and the University of Wisconsin--Madison's Polymer
Engineering Center are creating a "non-pneumatic tire", which is basically
a round polymeric honeycomb wrapped with a thick, black tread. The initial
version of the tire is for the Humvee and is expected to be available in

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised
everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature,
they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from
the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment
from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen,
and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of
the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in
complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a
natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It
grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head
of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the
competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and
comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class
design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an
ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs
(around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or
plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA
in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and
stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this
process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME
grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while
the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific
customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each
case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the
seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is
stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In
addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with
special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it
into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources
and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more
trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing
to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz
BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the
exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends
seamlessly into the ecosystem.
Kawasaki 48 Cylinder Runs!
Quick clip of the Worlds largest multi Cylinder Motorcycle, this 48
cylinder bike was built by my pal Simon Whitelock - here it is at the
Triples Rally in 2004 - it is actually 49 cylinder as the initial sound is
of the single cylinder starter engine
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

Watch dirt bike stunts, crazy stunts, bike tricks, and motorcycle wheelies.
Motorcycle stunt riding, sometimes referred to as simply stuntriding, is a
motorcycle sport characterized by stunts involving acrobatic maneuvering of
the motorcycle and sometimes the rider. Common maneuvers in stunt riding
include wheelies, stoppies, and burnouts. Sport bikes have become a common
vehicle for stunts.
A wheelie on a motorized vehicle is nothing new. In drag racing they are
considered a problem, robbing power that could be used to accelerate the
vehicle faster, and many classes
of drag racing use wheelie bars to prevent them.
But those are for vehicles specifically built for drag racing, which rarely
are street-legal, or unmodified from stock. In contrast, since at least the
1970s, some motorcycles straight from the showroom floor were able to be
In the late 1980s and continuing today, motorcycles, and especially
sportbikes, have become lighter and more powerful, and have therefore
become easier to wheelie. Other stunts have also become possible if not
easy with the advancement of motorcycle technology.
Stunters are a controversial subculture of motorcycling. Stunters perform
motorcycle stunts on sportbikes, both on public roads and in private
venues. Some stunters even have organized commercial teams.
