Seems some B.A.R.F. folks don't anything get in their way. Here are some epic adventures from barf'er "Luckette". Links below:
Epic Ride I
This is an old video, but I thought I might share it if you haven't seen it. It's called "One Got Fat" and it's an old-school bicycle safety video. Kids with creepy monkey masks on bikes - what more could you ask for?

This video is just about the sickest riding I've ever seen. Too bad there's no such thing as street legal trials bikes here in the US.
Of course, there are a few conditions:
- Submissions are to be from NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY! I'd love to cover the entire world, but SMhooligans is a Nor-Cal site.
- Please, no junk - and that will be to my discretion. Anyway, through your submission, you are representing yourself, so you want to send me some cool stuff, right?
- No offensive material, please. That includes depictions of bad accidents, deaths, dismemberment, criminal activity (beating people up, robbing people, etc); and keep the pornography to yourself.
- Please try to check your spelling and grammar. I'm not an elementary school teacher.
- Please give credit where credit is due. Provide rider names and location, and music credits if applicable.
I really appreciate your participation and look forward to all the cool stuff that's going to come through this site!

I grew up riding BMX, and I was a pretty good "freestyler" back in the 80's and 90's. My dream was to find a motorcycle that could really marry the two passions in my life: BMX and Moto. The SuperMoto was the answer. With the upright seating position and single cylinder "thumper" engine, The SuperMoto just made the most sense. Speed? It's all relative - and really... do you need to be going 110 MPH on public roads?
Since adopting SuperMoto, I created SMHooligans.com which has been an active part of the SuperMoto scene. This site gained popularity through the very affordable trackday events, group rides and videos and even became a world-wide phenomenon with the offshoot "SMHooligans Indonesia" site. Trackdays eventually became no longer available due to my work time constraints and liability issues, but were fun and memorable nonetheless.
For the past few years, I've weaned myself from riding the asphalt entirely. With issues like tickets, crazy drivers and traffic frustrations, I've taken up off-road riding which I enjoy both with my brother and my growing nephew. On designated trails, I don't have to contend with cars or competing motorcycles (especially the advance trails I ride most of the time). I also got much more serious about cycling, even flatland BMX.
SMHooligans has evolved, like most things do. Over time, I noticed that I wasn't the only one who was interested in SuperMoto and other things like off-road riding, mountain biking, road cycling, BMX, etc. and therefore I added the "TwoWheelLife.com" domain. However, SMHooligans was founded on SuperMoto and will always be a SuperMoto enthusiast website - with just a few other things added, as well.
I may not be riding SuperMoto (at the moment *insert evil laugh here*) but I know many of you are. I also know that many of you are trying to get started, and that's why I co-wrote "The Newbie Guide to SuperMoto" for any one interested in getting sideways.
I hope you enjoy the site, and RIDE FREE!
