Friday Fudge

Welcome to Friday Fudge. If it’s weird, funny, or strange motorcycle news, or it just plain won’t fit anywhere else on the site – you’ll find it here.


Brazilian woman vs: biker

It’s everywhere on the web now, so we might as well get it over with. Here’s the viral video clip of the crazy Brazilian woman pushing a biker around … with her car. Note how she tries to make him leave by turning on her windshield wipers. Anyway, in case you were wondering, YouTube commenters are saying the incident started when she cut him off, and he wasn’t happy about it.

Rodent troubles

"Bye bye! We're off to trap some mice in the garage."

Prince William, it appears, is subject to the same woes as the rest of us motorcyclists. Specifically, we’re talking about electrical gremlins.

There is probably no problem that bikers hate more than dodgy wiring, and the prince, despite shelling out the dough for a Ducati 1198SP, was supposedly suffering from electrical issues. Outrageous, right?

But it turns out the issue had nothing to do with poor quality control; instead, the problem is being blamed on mice, who supposedly chewed the bike’s wiring loom. Now the prince has to shell out 6,000 pounds to have the issue fixed … or like the rest of us, grab a spanner, some screwdrivers, and some wire, and bodge together a fix while dispatching his wife Kate to set out the peanut butter-filled mousetraps.

Battery power

Who says electric bikes are good for nothing? Buy one, and start your own towing company.


A true super enduro

Sadly, displacement rules mean you won't see this at a Dakar rally anytime soon.

Sure KTM’s got the rights to the Super Enduro name, but we’re thinking Yamaha may try to buy them, after seeing this machine they put together for former Dakar winner Stephane Peterhansel. But if Yamaha won’t co-operate, you can still build a machine like this by following their pattern: hand-cut some Michelin tires, bolt on a wide handlebar, and fly your R1 to Morocco’s sand dunes, and this could be you!

Trackside fail

It’s always painful to see a racer crash. But watching the spectator crash immediately afterwards? That’s gold, pure gold!
