Cruising Motorcycle Optical Illusion

This interesting looping animation is consisted of only three frames. It creates an interesting illusion of fluid motion. Can you see the motorcycle cruising continuously in up-street direction?

If you concentrate and focus solely on the street in front of the bike, the illusion becomes clear. Be sure to open the animation in full size for even better experience!

  1. I just see it jerking back and forth. Maybe if there weren’t other trees in the background which never get closer, it might work better.

  2. Uh, it’s actually… Not all that successful because I think it’s glitching a gray frame? It really just gives me a headache, not really any illussions to be found here.

  3. Thanks for the Cruising Motorcycle illusion.
    I have what I think is a “better” illustration of this … albeit using 4 frames, rather than your three!
    If you give me an email address, Ill send it to you …. if this dropbox link doesn’t work:


    PS: If you manage to download and run the .mov file, the trick is to run it in Loop mode.

  4. Can you hurry up and change this illusion? As cool as it is, it gives me a headache as soon as I go to my home page.

  5. My homepage shows a small photo of the illusions. The cruising motorcycle was horrible. On my homepage the blinking photo really got irritating. I usually love your optical illusions, but this one was the pits because I couldn’t get rid of it until you changed it. I really am a fan but this one was a loser. :)

  6. Nope . . . I can only see it as three repeating frames. The grey frame is too clearly a looping point, and the shaft of light across the road keeps the illusion from working.

  7. The blinking motorcycle optical illusion is highly annoying. That constant blinking drives me nuts. I cannot stand it. Could just show one frame with a link? Than way I can turn the blinking off.

  8. Could you change to the next illusion. I’m having epileptic seizures looking down the row of trees from the motor cycle.

  9. I’d have to say that it’s a really annoying one to have on the screen & clever as it is, I’ll be glad when it’s gone.
