The Urias Family

After performing for years in the Ringling Brothers, Barnum, and Bailey Circus, the Urias Family now brings their “Globe of Death” to the streets all around the world at events like Bikes on the Bricks.

Multiple motorcycles hurtling around the inside of a steel globe is thrilling. The excitement ramps up when the beautiful ladies outside the globe enter its interior and share the space with three motorcycles and their riders. Get as close as you dare.

Police Motorcycle Competition

Watch area police department motorcyclists compete on a course set up to test their riding skills. They weave in and out of cones spaced to see who has the ultimate control over their bike.
