Istvan Puskas, a Hungarian tractor driver, has made a name for himself by creating vehicles out of wood, including a bicycle and a motorcycled powered by a 200cc engine.

Is there anyone doing cooler things on a dirt bike than Robbie Maddison? This is such a trip to watch – now I’ve apparently got to figure out how to put skis on my bike.

Yup, this time the video intermission is of yours truly! In the past I’ve done written reviews of bikes (and don’t worry, there’s one of those coming up for the Scout in a few days), but thanks to the talents of my friends Aaron Schasse and Nathan May, I’ve also got a video of our adventure to share.
