Motorcycle Rocket Launcher - Click above to watch the video after the jump

The last time we were out riding a sportbike, it occurred to us that the most pressing thing missing from modern two-wheelers is weaponry. No, really. Think back in history for a moment... back to the days when horses provided the bulk of our transportation options. Whether it was the days of armored knights or mounted cavalrymen, one thing was constant: weapons. So, shouldn't we be packing a little sumthin' on our modern-day steel horses?

At least one enterprising 2006 Honda CBR owner seems to agree with us, and thankfully he's taken the initial steps to do something about it. How so? By adding a side-mounted rocket launcher. One button click is all it takes to send what appears to be a bottle rocket shooting off into the distance ahead. We'll go ahead and assume more substantial artillery will come with future revisions. Click past the break to watch the video. Hat tip to yknott!

      Pretty stupid. A perfect ending for the video would have been to see a cop pulling him over.
      And I can't believe nobody mentioned the best motorcycle/rock-launcher combo, Chuck Norris's bike in Delta Force.

      What an asshat, Just keep it off public roads seriously, you may think it harmless but not the person in front of you or on the other side of the freeway when they see one of these things coming at them and get scare cause of it.

      That is awesome, he needs some tow missiles on that thing next for maximum road rage.

      Best motorcycle with rockets? Anyone remember "Thunderball", the 4th James Bond film back in 1965? The evil Fiona blows up a '57 Ford flip-top convertible with her rocket equipped cafe racer just before the driver intends to extract his revenge on Bond. C'mon, it was only 44 years ago...

      So, this guy posts video of him firing his "rockets" on a public road in traffic on the net.

      Another blog post about police tracking down retards with too much free time in 3...2...1...

      Awesome video. So seamlessly integrated into the website coding, it's like it isn't even there... oh wait...

      plain stupid.

      Damn, I'm so impressed. Sure it has the potential to go terribly wrong, but it does look really f**king cool.

      Reminds me of Megaforce.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I thought of that when I was 13. Fortunately I have grown up.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yup, me too. Used two model rocket kits mounted to the front fork, and one in back for smoke screen. Everything was wired to a plywood switchboard zip tied to the handlebars. Never grew out of it though, considering I've been in the Air Force for 12 years now.
