The Australians behind the world’s first Harley backflip show no sign of halting their campaign to get the Yankee iron doing everything its two-wheeled cousins can do... louder. Quick-Fix Harley Mildura Australia rider Steve Butler has successfully ridden a Harley-Davidson Sportster round an ironwork ‘globe of death’ (like a wall of death but completely spherical), completing the feet with spectacular aplomb.

How can you see that and not be impressed? I've seen the acts in CHinas, too. But they weren't on long, heavy Harleys. I've also seen guys do backfilps on lighweight supercrossers btu never on a Harley. Has anyone seen one done on a 'Blade, for example?

Impressive but these 'records' are just for doing what has been done a million times already but doing them on a particular bike. Is there a record for every type of bike in the world ?

Impressive but saw same globe in the Shanghai Circus, with 7 bikes going all directions in the dark. Truly awesome!!!
