* Done as a team by Harry Dresden and Karin Murphy in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. The normal difficulties are somewhat alleviated by Harry handling the "lance" (a magically charged wizard's staff in this case) while Murphy drove the bike. A heaping helping of magic supercharged with HellFire smoothed out the rest.

rest.[[note]]What also helped, according to Harry's internal narration, is even a Wizard can use normal physics: Drive a car and motorcycle towards each other at high speed, use magic to give the bike more 'effective' mass, and use the staff[=/=]'lance' as a lever....[[/note]]

* ''VideoGame/HenryStickminSeries'': in ''Stealing the Diamond'', during the Agressive scenario, Henry can try this when rushing through the museum on his scooter. It fails because Henry loses his balance, so the lance strikes the ground and Henry is catapulted off his scooter. The fail screen even comments on this.

* Happens infrequently in the ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchise. The most famous example is Series/KamenRiderKuuga, where the titular Kuuga had a bike specifically known for maneuverability, and could joust just about anywhere (roads, beaches and even inside buildings).
