Mechanical Horse

Mechanical Horse

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This is not only a mechanical horse, but we call them the `Mat Rempits' in Malaysia. They are illegal bike racers who are a nuisance to society both with their silly stunts to kill others on the road other than themselves! This would have been a good picture to submit to the newspaper reportage of this illegal bike racing event. I like this shot for the motion of the car and the biker seated backwards. The tires of both vehicle met in perfection. For more shots, please click on In Motion Gallery.

other sizes: small medium original

Nice shot, but if he falls he is going to spend months in hospital!. No safety at all. Just T-shirt, slipers, no helmet.

Don't try this at home and most importantly don't let your husband try this action. LOL!
BTW, this is a superb cature but please ignore the stupid stunt action by that 'Mat Rempit'.
