The Ride of the Century

Who are the bikers you should be afraid of? Are they perhaps the bearded men coated in leather, wearing more patches on their leather waistcoats than a fifty-year-old boy scout? Wrong! They are not. The riders you should really be afraid of are quite a bit different looking sort.

It really amazes how far motorcycle customization can go. Streetfigters and supermotos of all kinds, sprayed in such manner that one might think that there was an explosion in the color factory near by, running around in large groups, causing traffic havoc. Equipped with all sorts of stunt tools known to mankind, they really redefine the term “riding a bike”.

It’s called the Ride of the Century, and it is an event organized all over the States, and even a little bit further north. What it really means is going on a hundred mile ride. What sorts of bikes and riders it rallies, what sort of message it sends out to the public find out in the videos. Oh, there’s also a bonus video of – running a police blockade.
