You never know what you might catch while riding with your GoPro! Rider Tommy Faucette catches the exact moments his rear shock exploded from underneath the seat of his pit bike and nearly misses injury as it ricochets off his helmet and bike. All the while he manages to maintain control and pull to the side with no rear suspension. Huge thanks to Tommy for submitting this clip, this was an epic moment of Dude Date 2015 and I’m glad we can share it with everyone!
I finally finished my edit from the Halloween Dude Date footage. Sorry for such the long wait guys, I know I normally have an edit done in 2-3 days but I’ve been super busy with preparing for another event this weekend. A great turnout of riders as always and a great time of course too. The cold weather couldn’t stop the Dude Date crew! Enjoy guys, as I finish this post I’m literally heading out the door for a fun filled weekend of jeeping and filming at DTOR for their annual Boo Bash weekend! Stay tuned!

I just happened to catch this by accident while stopped at a red light. As you can see from the video I had to check the GoPro to see if it was rolling or not afterwards haha. I got a good laugh out of it while reviewing footage on the computer.
So yesterday on the ride I was paying a bit too much attention to filming rather than riding and almost ran into the back of another rider. I had to brake pretty hard which led to the rider behind me riding a wheelie right into my hero 3 on the monopod haha. Luckily none of us crashed and kept the bikes under control and it made a pretty awesome screenshot right?
I had a decent amount of footage of this chick from Dude Date and put together a short clip of her riding. I filmed most of it while we were at the Motorcycle Superstore outlet. She was pulling off lots of combos and killing the streets all day. Have a look for yourself below.
A handful of brand new Honda Groms showed up for the summer annual Dude Date ride in Louisville, Kentucky. I got to film some of them and see them in action for the first time since Honda released the Grom here in the United States for 2014. These little bikes look like an absolute blast to ride, not to mention they’re 100% street legal and get about 120 MPG! I hope to buy myself one of these in the near future! Enjoy!
I don’t know how he does it, this trick looks extremely hard to pull off! Tyler Gaughan, rider and owner of the 50 Mafia minibike parts and clothing company does a tandem wheelie at Dude Date 2014! Tyler manages to complete a circle wheelie or two while a willing female volunteer from the crowd sits on his shoulders! Amazing!
Who says china bikes can’t handle abuse? This little bike wouldn’t blow after 7 mins of wide open throttle!
