Welcome to Friday Fudge – a weekly round up of the more ‘unusual’ motorcycle related stories that are just too silly to post on their own, but raise a much bigger chortle when you slap them all together and take the piss.
A Christmas tradition?
Two-wheeled life isn’t all roses and sunshine. Sometimes you want to do something more car- or truck-friendly, like pick up a Christmas tree. So what do you do, if that’s the case?
Simple! Ride down to the Christmas tree lot, and get someone with a car to meet you there … and take a video of you riding home with the Christmas tree on your motorcycle.
The life of the party
Do you ever wonder what to do with your unused motorcycle gear?
Sure, you could sell it on eBay, but now there’s another option: Turn your unused bike gear into party gear. And we’re not just talking about going clubbing in your too-tight leather motorcycle pants.
No, we’re talking about true bass-pumping party gear. A seller on Etsy.com has turned a Dainese motorcycle vest into a “party vest.” Discontent with his vest’s protective function, he’s strapped two amplified motorcycle speakers and an eight-inch subwoofer to it, along with a 10-cell rechargeable battery.
He claims his device will turn you into the loudest person in the room – just the thing for your office Christmas party!

Fact: A lot of dudes would never ride a motorcycle two-up with another guy. It’s just … awkward.
Well, here’s the solution, found on YouTube!
Burnouts are a lot of fun, but they can get you in trouble with the law. That’s what a Manitoba man found out last week when he tried to roast a motorcycle tire – in a basement.
It turns out his anti-social tire destruction was going a little too well; a neighbour saw the billowing smoke and called police, who came and arrested the 48-year old.
It turns out the burnout was the least of his legal worries; the coppers also charged him with uttering threats, mischief, breach of recognizance and resisting a peace officer, so you can bet there was more to the story than simple free-spirited wheelspinning.

Rolling with the
Here in Canada, we should be thankful at Christmas time; after all, we’re incredibly blessed with friends and material possessions, compared to people from other countries … like this dude from Pakistan, who couldn’t even find a friend to pilot his motorcycle while he was towed behind it on roller skates.
Yeah, we know we showed you something pretty similar last week. But this just raised the roller skate/motorcycle madness to a whole new level, and we just had to show it.
