A tricky ride

Here’s a stunt you shouldn’t practice at home, kids – or likely, anywhere else. At least if they crash, they won’t remember it, since they haven’t packed helmets.

Apparently, churchgoers aren’t the pushovers that everyone assumes they are.

An alleged bike thief in Nigeria found this out the hard way, after some church staff in the town of Mafoluku Oshodi found him trying to pinch a bike from their parking lot, or so they claim. They quickly put an end to it.

However the alleged thief says their story is wayyyyy off-base; he was just heading to the church, he says, to talk to a girl he’d slept with. Instead of chatting up his old fling on church property, though, he says he was roughed up by the clergy.

Who’s the most trustworthy witness here? It’s hard to say, but we bet the church’s parking lot is crime-free for a while, in any case.

More fails

Here is a list of what NOT to do on a motorcycle. Highlights include a dude trying to do the splits while a biker rides through his legs. Results are predictable.

Tough guy

Hopefully this guy didn’t create all this fuss, and then simply ride to Tim Hortons.

Craft time

Don’t let your friends get away with the excuse that they can’t afford a motorcycle – this guy turns his trash into a bike, in record time.
