  • The problem with the bike flipping backwards is the back wheel would need to out speed the front, like a wheelie. If the back wheel lock up, which is hard because the engine torque would blow through most things, the bike is more likely to slide. It can flip forward, because as the bike slows, the mass of the bike shifts forward to the front wheel.

  • maaaaan idk, If you sent that Harley off that jump I think it would've made it.....altho I doubt anyone would be able to hold onto that thing when it lands, break your wrist in half.

  • I saw a Great Escape documentary and they said that sometimes Steve McQueen was filmed as some of the soldiers who were chasing his character on the motorcycle because the stunt guys couldn't ride as well as him for those shots; they needed to sell it that the soldiers were good enough riders to keep up and only he could make it look that good. He was apparently an amazing rider and did the fence jump a few times.

  • Seeing as how I have the extras for the dark knight movie, I'm pretty sure all those bike stunts were real and the cape was worn the whole time riding... The only thing that was different was the front wheel flipping and the going under the truck part but most of it was real.

    XPNDBLheroXPNDBLhero3 päivää sitten
  • Doubt an MT09 will do 160-70 mph stock, also, why would they bother to change the gearing for shots like that

  • You could pass under a semi-trailer if the landing gear was removed, the spare rack was removed, you were extremely low to the ground and the truck was moving very slowly. I'm 6ft 1 and I have to crouch to 90° to get under those trailers.

  • Concerning the 'Worlds fastest Indian' and the lack of safety equioment at the time... Yeah well just two decades before racedrivers outright refused to wear seatbelts and had leathercaps as helmets. Times change, knowing what we know, times certainly were dangerous back then. To them, it was normal and acceptable risk.

  • Yeah a bike can go a long way without a rider! A biker on a Harley was hit by a swerving car on a french motorway. The guy was wounded on the ground watched his bike still going. It was found in Paris about 6 miles further. There are videos of it, called the ghost bike of the A4 I believe. I'm sure there are other stories like that even more incredible!

  • Fun fact 2 Ape Hanger bars and cruiser style bikes were developed in the early days of motorcycling in the USA when roads were often dirt and over grown by tree branches and bushes. The long, low centre of gravity kept bikes stable on looser surfaces and the shape of the bars let branches and other obstacles hit the bars before they would hit the rider's hands.
