Five Motorcycle Suits That Make You Wish You Owned a Bike

Given that I was the only kid in my school to fail his cycling proficiency test, I decided early on in my life that climbing onto anything with fewer than four wheels was pure foolishness. Only now, many years later, do I find myself rethinking that strategy in light of the mind blowing geekyness of some of the suits now available to today’s high speed death-dodgers. Fortunately for me, I can’t afford any of them so I shall have to be content to just share them here and keep all my limbs intact.

5. Tron

Ok, it doesn’t light up, but it does have reflective plates so if you can get somebody to shine a torch at you as you ride you can look like a total badass. Besides, what else are you going to where while riding your road legal Tron bike?

4. Stormtrooper

What better way to stay safe on the road than by wearing a helmet with no peripheral vision? Yes, for just $1,147 you too can look like those famously skilled bikers, The Stormtroopers! Word of advice, best not to go riding in any forests…or around teddy bears.

3. Iron Man

Perfect for any racetrack, it’s a replica of the Iron Man suit worn by Robert Downey Jnr while kicking seven bells out of Whiplash for messing up his F1 car. It doesn’t fly, or shoot repulsor beams, but it will make Pepper Potts fancy you and who doesn’t want that?

2. Batman

This one comes with an added element of danger as the temptation to attach a cape and subsequently be dragged under the wheels of your own ride will be almost overwhelming. Fear the night, fear justice, but most of all, fear falling off and scuffing your awesome batgloves.

1. Captain America

Forget anything else. If you want to look like a true biking legend then the only option has to be this replica of Chris Evans’ uniform from Captain America. The shield and helmet aren’t included but you can pick them up from other places and best of all, you get to shout “Assemble” at bike meetings before riding off on one of the sexiest looking bikes in/from history.

These suits are all made by some very talented craftsmen at a company called UD Replicas and if you have a lot of spare cash and the desire to ride a bike like a boss then you can pick these (and several others, including the awesome Daredevil and X-Men suits) from their website.

Wrong Clown, Batman!

Every hero makes mistakes, even the Dark Knight. As College Humor shows us in this recent sketch, sometimes it’s better to admit your mistakes and sometimes it’s better to just beat the holy hell out of a weeping children’s entertainer.

I pray he never gets loose on the South Bank.

The Dark Knight Is Confused

This is kind of old (about as old as the movie it’s parodying to be exact) but it’s managed to avoid me until this week. Turns out Batman is pretty confused about some of the plot points in his movies and he’s decided to communicate this through the noble medium of rap. You should have a look at the rest of the the Key of Awesome’s stuff too, it’s very funny.
