Natural Selection can happen on two wheels

It’s Chuck Darwin’s 200th birthday! Or “ DarwinDay” which is being celebrated all around the world.

If you are not sure who this dead guy is, he was an English naturalist who came up with the Theory of Evolution.

To break the theory down for you (in case you care), Evolution works through Natural Selection. Natural Selection describes how individuals of a species most fit to live in their environment are more likely to survive and carry on their species passing on their genetic traits that gave them a one-up on the competition. The weak and unsuited animals are more likely to be killed off and not pass their traits on. Natural Selection occurring over many generations can change the species to make them better fit and/or equipped to survive and thus we have Evolution.

To celebrate this day, enjoy this montage of almost Natural Selection at work in the motorcycle world. Don’t worry, no one dies or gets seriously hurt. That’s why I said “almost”.
