A motorcycle “how to” video for the backyard mechanic.
From The “So Dumb It’s Cool” Dept. Comes: The Moto Swing + Video
Folks, this is what you get when you have entirely too much time on your hands: the moto-swing. Consisting of a motorcycle, some rope, and a large dirt pit, this is what happens when you’re bored and broke. Which in some cases is the greatest motivation to get back on your feet and do something.
This guy in Brazil does exactly that. Using some heavy-duty cord, hung from some sturdy tree branches, he suspends his trusty two-stroke barely off the ground. Remember as a child having a parent push you higher and higher on the swing set? In this case the man takes the parent out of the equation, using the bike to propel in whatever direction, throttling it whenever the rear tire touches the ground.
Fair warning, folks: this video is dumb. And yet we can’t take our eyes off it. Mainly because we’re jealous we didn’t think of it sooner.
