R1 Videos is Looking for Bands

So you think your music rocks or would sound good in one of our videos? Prove it! Send us a song or two and an email stating you own your own music and have the right to license it to us for use and we’ll post it in a video, podcast, and more. It doesn’t matter if you are a DJ, metal, instrumental, or punk – we jam it all! Hey, we need cool music and you need all the eardrums you can get, right? We are in front of 1,000′s of riders and motorsport enthusiasts a month. If that sounds cool to you, contact me ASAP at Robert at R1Videos.com.

No worries, if you suck, we just won’t use your stuff until you practice up a bit more. And in the words of Ezel from Friday, “I ain’t gonna tellll nobody else!”

R1Videos – out.

Fellow R1 Insider Orbie’s Crash Pics

It’s not “IF” you are going to go down, it’s “WHEN.” Orbie sent these over so thank God he made it out of this mess in one piece. To our beginners and pros, always wear your safety gear no matter what. That one time you need it will make all the hot and sweaty rides worth it. We here at R1Videos are commuters through rain, cold, and Texas heat and always stay protected. Anyways, sorry for your loss Orbie, maybe your next bike will be a Yamaha R1!

R1 Insider Brandon Picks Up His First Yamaha R1

A new friend and fellow R1 Insider Brandon picked up his first R1 a couple days ago so we wanted to officially welcome him into the worldwide club of sportbike riding! He has already started the mods on his 2005 YZF-R1 with a killer reservoir sock and he tells us that several other changes will be underway soon. Check out his new bike and leave a comment if you have any advice for him. Congrats Brandon! Now get some protective gear and start learning how to hang on to her.

Encountering Drivers With Road Rage

Riders, let me say this: I never thought a driver of another vehicle other than a motorcycle would ever consider killing a motorcyclist. I will say, I don’t think drivers consider it, I think they just get road rage bad enough where they make stupid moves like the guy in this video. While we normally try not to post videos that we didn’t make ourselves, for your riding safety, you MUST see this video. I have experienced a few jerk drivers in my many years riding out on the open roads, but never like this. The scary thing is, when I have encountered other drivers that were pissed off that I passed them or got in front of them, I would mistakenly always say to myself when I saw them riding my tail, “What is he gonna do? It’s not like he’s gonna try to kill me!” And now I can safely say, I was wrong all these years. You NEVER know what idiot people will do when they get mad. So from now on, YES, there is a chance that the guy you just passed that got pissed off about it MIGHT try to kill you. I just want you to know that you should never cross this out as an option for those with road rage so keep an eye on them, burn out on them, move over, use the shoulder, whatever you have to do. If you notice a driver making threats to you with his vehicle, GET AWAY FAST and do so safely. Don’t give him more time to act and run you down, because you never know!! If you have a camera rolling, you could also report the driver to the Police. However, you do so at your own risk. As you can see, the driver of this vehicle got out with a crow bar, so your best bet might be to just get away.

This video is proof that something as simple as a passing the wrong driver could be fatal if you come across an idiot like this guy! This makes my blood boil. Keep those GoPro’s rollin!
