An astonished driver in a Russian city pulled out his cellphone to take video of a bizarre sight: a massive brown bear riding in a motorcycle sidecar. Nicholas Pasynkov said he was driving in Syktyvkar, when he saw the 250-pound bear calmly riding in a motorcycle.
The bear himself seems delighted to play the role of pillion, looking like a total pro in his blue sidecar. Tim the bear was a specially trained animal performing in a traveling circus run by a motorcycle club called the Polar Wolves bike club.
In the video, the large bear towers over its human drivers while the man sitting alongside it even strokes it affectionately.
