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.

Extended wheelbase

What on earth would possess a person to build a scooter this long? Well, considering it’s in Asia, the builder probably wanted an extended cargo bay so they could haul more family members … after all, this is their version of a stretch limo.

Faked photos

How do you pass the time if you’re a bored photographer in Morocco?  For Hassan Hajjaj, the answer was to create a series of photos of a made-up motorcycle gang of women. Dubbed the Kesh Angels, his imaginary two-wheeled Robin Hoods (or is that Maid Marians?) rob from the rich and steal from the poor, when they’re not posing menacingly with their scooters. You can see more of his work here. We’re just hoping he starts another photojournalistic project soon, documenting the Laffing Devils of the laffably lame show Devils Ride, focusing on the fake exploits of a made-up motorcycle gang in the US …

Eating and driving

How do you like your fast food? Brit inventor Colin Furze likes his fast food … fast. Here’s a classic video from the same guy who brought you the flamethrower scooter and a homemade Wall of Death. Check out the motorcyclist getting a feed of beans while under power. Hidden by that helmet, we’re not sure of his identity, but it does look suspiciously like something bean-loving Editor ‘Arris would attempt. Although he’s a bit shorter than our lanky editor-in-chief.

Practice makes perfect

It used to be, if you wanted to learn how to pull a wheelie, you bought a dirt bike. Now, you can find a dealer with one of these machines.

Having a cow

This stunter had a tough crowd. They thought his routine was a load of bull.
