Icon_Wall_Of_Death.jpgFollowing the teaser clip and the Icon Speed Cretin motorcycle, here’s the full Icon Speed Cretin vs. Wall of Death documentary. Essentially, the company built a motorcycle that’s not suitable for riding, then rode it in a big wooden barrel with vertical walls. We think the point was to demonstrate how sensitive and kind they are.  >

    You should disclose your connection with Speed Cretin, Wes. Did you think that the similarity in title font would go unnoticed?

      We also appear to be responsible to The Sons of Anarchy title font and that show’s heavy use of Courier on paper, as seen in our features. Who knew we were making so much money?

    I visited the Icon website and noticed that the horn things are “optional”, and that their marketing language only serves to reinforce the fact that I’m not their target demographic. (“Sometimes you just twist throttle, dump clutch, and go.” Did these guys write for the J. Peterman Catalog?)

    I’m usually not as turned off by the Icon stuff as most people I know; they are trying to reach a street (urban?) market that isn’t Ducati and isn’t Harley and I appreciate that, but lordy this thing is ugly.

    Hush young one. The masters are at work.

    The fortune tellers, mystics, pirates and geomancers at Icon are answering the prayer requests… they just might not be yours.
