Though overpass! I think Penskee, Ryder and Uhaul would save money by rebuilding the overpass on their dime
Right around the corner from me, we have what is known as the truck eating brindge. They’ve even put sensors up that measures the height of the vehicle that then lights up a big warning sign to the driver not to continue. Still a few get past that every month.
Type “muizenberg bridge truck” into Google and then click images.
My understanding is that the railroad owns the bridge and doesn't care at all because their bridge is always fine so certainly won't pay to have it raised and then there's water lines under the road so they can't lower it.
That reminds me of the (9' tall!!!) Memorial Drive underpass on Mass Ave right next to MIT. Every few weeks or so I'd hear a loud WHAM, look out window from my dorm, and see a truck that had whizzed past the big brilliantly lit "Stop! Turn Back! Don't do this, you fool!" signs, discovered that those signs were there for a reason, and was now either missing its bed or dragging what was left of it behind by a few scaps of metal. This was always a terrific amount of fun, since it wasn't my truck
Legend has it that someone 'almost' took a Greyhound under that thing, but hit the brakes just in time. For which I am very thankful.

You guys have seen 199 lives right? Parts 2-8 follow automatically
I took way too much enjoyment from watching this guy simply noodling around on a new bike. The fact that there was very little background music was a bonus:

What a great video of times long ago, can't wait to show my son when he gets home from school.
Some of the comments compare the manufacturing process favourably with today's Harley Davidsons
That little KTM RC 390 was holding it's own. A little slower out of the corners but not bad. Could you imagine how good those videos would be with woman in bikini's waving as the bikes go by? I'd watch then all day and night.
I have a friend who races a 250 2t. I've seen her in a bikini.... If she raced in one, she would be dragging a titty.
Okay... this is utterly mind blowing.
Graham Jarvis's onboard gopro from this year's Erzberg rodeo........
Couple of key sections from the race in the video:
39:00 - “The Machine” just unreal....
45:00 - Crazy-ass forest, holy fucking lunacy!!! And wait for the uphill back through it!
52:00 - “Carl’s Dinner”
Not bad for a 43 year old..... Legend.
