Here at, we’re fond of posting videos of people doing silly things on motorcycles. Sometimes, we post videos that should be a lesson to us all. Only occasionally do we find a video that meets the criteria of being truly MOronic. In this action-packed video, 58 members of the Indian army find a way to ride a motorcycle for more than a kilometer down an airport runway. After watching this video a few times, we’re certain that something this silly could only be pulled off by a military organization. Look at the precision with which they undertook the task. Impressive effort by all – well, maybe not by the one guy who failed to climb aboard the rolling flash mob.

So, sit back and enjoy.

Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.

    This kind of stuff, OK not so extreme, used to be part of the circuses I went to as a child, pyramids and the like...I don't think circuses are allowed anymore though, are they?

    Isn't that just normal mass transportation in that part of the world?

      Haha, you must be kidding! That was 1983. Its 2018. Not the India shown in Roger Moore's Octopussy
