We Have A Record! Most Pillions On A Motorcycle - Incredible

This has got to be a record, and I don't even think they were trying to go for one. The most number of people on a motorcycle (that wasn't a stunt bike). I counted 14, maybe there are more, since some are well hidden (see related below for others, but lesser numbers). The feat itself is amazing and incredible, but what's even more impressive is the solidity of the motorcycle and the bike's tires. Amazing.

Anyone know the story behind this?

In the past we've often shown you photos of a lot of people on a motorcycle. Usually it's because they have no choice.. it's the only way they can get anywhere. The largest number of "passengers" we've counted so far has been 13.

But on November 2010 a bunch of soldiers in India set out to break the world record of the number of people on a motorcycle. And the number? 54! On a Royal Enfield 500 motorcycle.

Last year we mentioned the first motorcycle gathering called "Motors and Soul", a gathering of beautiful motorcycle complemented with great music and food, and all that in a castle (link Open link in a new window). Lots of well planned ride-outs were also on the program. Well, last year was such a success that the organizers (Virage8 Open Virage8 link in a new window) are doing it again, but this time bigger.

Motors and Soul

Here is a video of a couple of thieves who were stealing motorcycles out of a shop in Paris, France. Cops from the BAC, an elite anti-gang squad, caught them red-handed. And these undercover cops are not exactly friendly neighborhood cops ... and also a bit heavy-handed (thankfully). The guys in the video with the sticks are the cops.

Aren't you jealous that your cops aren't allowed to do this? (Thanks Oliepeil Open link in a new window)

Tip: let the video load, sometimes it will take a few seconds

UK: Lunatic Gets 8 Month Prison For Riding 153 MPH On Country Lanes

153 MPH is a very respectable speed on a motorcycle. On a race circuit. Not on country roads, riding through villages, passing cars on narrow lanes and flying past people walking.

Then it's pure lunacy. But that's exactly what Ashley Dixon from the UK did. This 24 year old motorcycle rider took a Honda Fireblade out for a test ride, and filmed his joy ride with a helmet-cam. He did similar with a BMW S1000R.

In May and April of this year he flew his bikes at low altitude, and then posted his video on Youtube to try to get some notoriety. Of course the police saw it on YouTube and were able to quickly identify the prat.

153 MPH Test Ride UK

Dixon passed via the judge, and was sent to jail for 8 months (and did not collect $200) and is banned from driving for 2 years. Dixon complained that with an 8 month jail he'll loose his job working in a supermarket. No shit? As the saying goes "if you can't do the time, don't do the crime".

His only excuse was he did not know the potential of the motorcycle he was riding and the speed just crept up on him. He obviously did not read the signs: speedometer, wheelie, flying past cars and objects....

The problem I have with idiots like him is that it makes the general population angry with motorcycle riders in general, and that's dangerous for us. If he crashes his brains out all by himself, that's his problem. But if he runs down a little girl crossing the road, people will hold bikers in general accountable.

Anyway, he'll be out of action for a long while. Here's the video of his "joy" ride...

Take Your Pooch With You On Your Motorcycle - Bagster

Many bikers like to take their dog with them on their motorcycle when taking a trip. And as long as it's not a Great Dane dog, you should be able to. Obviously if you've got a sidecar, there is no problem. But if not, apart from placing the dog behind you on the pillion seat, there aren't many other options available.

But French motorcycle luggage company Bagster Open Bagster in a new window has other ideas. Bagster have a pet friendly luggage called appropriately "Friendly", and it's a tank bag made for canines.

Bagster Friendly

Place the bag on your fuel tank, secure it with the 4 anchor straps, and put your pooch inside. The canine must weigh less that 8 kilos and with its 2 side pockets you can still store some minor stuff (like dog cookies). The top part has a map compartment.

You can NOT use the bag if it's raining, since it's not rain proof (your dog might just shrink in there when it rains). But there's an air trap opened by zipper to allow the dog to breath.

Bagster Friendly

And when you've arrived at your destination, there's even a carry strap in case your dog does not want to walk. The whole bag, minus the dog, weighs 1,9 kg and measures 45 x 33 x 30 cm. That's a volume of 30 liters.

Price: Around €70.

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013 - Travelling With Your Pooch - Canine Motorcycle Pod

Dog saucer motorcycle pod

There are quite a lot of bikers out there that want to take their dog with them when riding their motorcycle. Some of them have dogs small enough to take along in a tank bag or even top case, while others have dogs that will remain in place behind them (but it's dangerous for everyone).

Obviously the best way of transporting your dog with you on your motorcycle is in a sidecar, but not everyone wants to have a sidecar. So here's the next best option, the canine motorcycle pod called Dog Saucer.

Many of us bikers love dogs, and wouldn't think of going somewhere without the pooch. But often it's not easy, since they don't always sit still behind you. So you end up buying a trailer for your motorcycle. But trailers are boring.... unless you make this ultimate motorcycle dog-house-trailer.
