The Road to Bonneville is Paved by Cool People

Offerings to the God of Speed

Scott Kolb's been working on a 125cc motorcycle for the past seven years. His goal: to be the first person to take a 125cc motorcycle up to 200 miles per hour.

The three riders (Jeremy Merires, Thomas Sagnier, Kevin Parussini) from Switch Riders are incredibly talented. They exhibit a tremendous amount of balance, control, precision, and timing. This isn't just a motorcycle stunting video, it's the benchmark for all motorcycle stunting videos to come.
