2008 Suzuki Hayabusa First Ride - MotoUSA

Hayabusa, I would like to hear the argument for it. Whether you love it or
hate it, there's no denying that the Hayabusa is insanely fast! Read our

2008 Honda CBR1000RR - Sportbike Motorcycle First Ride
With the yellow over-rev light staring me in the face I grab an upshift. I
start to feel the front-end gently climbing skyward as I motor uphill
towards Laguna's infamous corkscrew, I run the bike wide and to the
outside, setting up for the famous turn. I close the throttle, snag a
downshift and squeeze the tank with my legs as hard as I can while jamming
on the front brake lever, then out of the corner of my eye last year's
world champ and certified Laguna expert, Nick Hayden, snakes through,
rear-wheel kicked out sideways, then in a instant he's gone... All on a
bone-stock 2008 Honda CBR1000RR streetbike.

2008 Kawasaki KLX450R Comparison - MotoUSA
We all know that you don't have to be the biggest, baddest dude in the
group to get some action. Sure, those guys have their moments, and maybe
those attention-grabbing physiques are exactly what some people are looking
for. But, if people only shack-up with the best there'd be no hope for the
rest. That's exactly where Kawasaki falls into the mix with its 2008
KLX450R. While Honda is the chiseled muscle-head that impresses with its
biceps, and the Yamaha is more of the easy-on-the-eyes, smooth talking
type, the Kawasaki's role is of "the friend". The KLX is definitely lovable
and has some attractive features alright, but they're hidden behind its
somewhat oafish appearance. If you can look past the soft exterior you'll
find that there's more to this bike than meets the eye.

Yeti Concept Truck
Master fabricator Rex Bailey used the Samson™ CNC machine to build the
"Yeti" (the abominable snowman), a monster truck that drives through snow
more than 3 feet deep. The 76-inch tractor tires, Unimog portal axles, and
modified Dodge 3500 Cummins diesel truck are all joined together by
custom-designed plates that Rex made with the machine.
11 feet high. 20 feet long. And, a $300,000 pricetag. No one believed he
could pull it off, but he built it anyway.
Alone in his workshop at home, Greg Dunham crafted the world's largest
motorcycle. Not only does the giant machine
look amazing, it actually drives!
McLean V-8 Monocycle (Crash 2:55)
For more information about Kerry McLean visit:
Nearly 10 years later, Kerry has come full 'circle' after his horrific
crash... With the creation of his NEW 2011 McLean V8 Drag Wheel. Kerry and
his son can also be seen in several of Nokia's new SatNav commercials.
Pretty cool stuff. http://www.youtube.com/user/wpd5
Ask anyone who knows Kerry McLean and they will tell you that he is a very
talented and creative man.
His skills and ingenuity are especially evident in the V-8 Monowheel,
Rocket Roadster McLean Wheel. A 800-900 lb. wheel, powered by an eight
cylinder Buick engine capable of speeds over 100 mph!
What you are about to see started off as a fun family day, before things
went terribly wrong. When Kerry and his machine came to rest, his head was
less than 6" from a concrete curb. All I can say is that he is fortunate
to have survived!

How To Rebuild a Motorcycle Shock (Dirt Bike Rear Shock Rebuild Video)
http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com This video will show you how to rebuild
the rear shock on your motorcycle or ATV. We show you how to change the
shock seal and oil inside the shock. Your Motorcycle shock needs to be
serviced on a regular basis, and we make it easy to do. The process is the
same for many ATV shocks and street bike shocks. Rocky Mountain ATV/MC
stocks the tools and parts you need to rebuild your motorcycle suspension
(forks and shock). In this video we rebuild a Kayaba Rear Shock but we also
demonstrate how to disassemble a Showa Shock as well. After performing this
rear suspension service you will need to fill the shock bladder with
nitrogen and this can be done by almost any local shop for a minimal fee.
Visit our website to see all the parts and accessories we carry for your
dirt bike, street bike, atv or side by side at Rocky Mountain ATV.com!
