I would've bet money that picture was edited.  Turns out it is an amateur Canadian stuntman on a dealer loaned HD looking for movie work.


Yes, people do that, I was referring to that particular image. Riding under a crop sprayer is easily done, similar to riding through a 5' tunnel.  

I would never attempt something like that. To many bad variables. 
I sure as wouldn’t do it on a loaner bike.
That guy is probably a jerk.

I have not tried to verify this. 



In 1913 the brothers [Abernathy] Louis [Bud] age 13, and Temple age 9, rode from Oklahoma to New York City on the Indian Motorcycle seen in the photo. This was not the Abernathy boys firs adventure.

In 1909 the two brothers, Louis “Bud” aged nine and Temple five, encountered a host of Old West obstacles, including wolves and wild rivers, when they rode more than 1,000 miles from Oklahoma to Santa Fe and back – ALONE!.

The following year (1910) the brothers set their sights on New York City, which they reached after a month of hard riding.

In the summer of 1911, they did the impossible. They rode nearly 4,000 miles, from New York to San Francisco, in only sixty-two days. Once again, the Abernathy Boys had made a historic ride without any adult assistance and accomplished an equestrian feat which has never been equaled."

Certainly one of my all time favorites!!


The bike ain’t bad either!! :lol:

About $2.00 in the mid ‘60s and that would probably have filled the tank and then some!!

Nope. I still don’t need anything like that. Thank God!


Maybe this…15-20 years from now. :D



Bought that in a single seat, it'll pull wheelies on a full charge and the disc brakes will slide you forward on the seat.  Definitely more fun than the mobility store models.

I see them on lowriders sometimes.   Or, more correctly,  cars that get lumped into the lowrider class because of the paint and fancy wheels.

I haven't been following this thread, so somebody may have already posted this. If so, I apologize.

And that's why I never split lanes on my bagger.

I actually saw a guy do that with pretty much the same result. I help get his bike up. He forgot which bike he was on. I guess he had another bike without bags.
