What's your point?! Just Russians being Russian
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

There's danger here, but it ain't the bikes. ::) I agree with the previous post.

The name of the thread was meant to be ironical. I just thought it amusing that there are so many mishaps on film with that Izh brand of motorcycle (which is a cool bike BTW, I think...).

They're made in the Soviet Union intended for sale in the Soviet Union. Did you think they were going to use them to advance agriculture and develop into a first world nation?

Not really feeling it. Sometimes I wonder if I can feel at all.

Yeah. Watching the video you get the impression they had a hard time keeping anything but the extra-large rear sprockets in-stock at the factory in Izhevsk.

After watching this repeat several dozen times, I realized the forks didn't actually break and sever. The lowers weren't attached to the fork tubes and they popped out in mid-air. Crazy Ruskies.
