Ya he crashed but it is still a great pic,like I said he is still looking into the corner...thats dedication. If you look close you can almost see he is about to lose the front end.

I´m sure riding in a 24-hour race is fun, but watching it really isn´t. It´s too hard to see who´s leading and who´s second. (Maybe ´cause I´m stoopid.) It´s almost as boring as Formula 1, I think. Although F1 was kinda exciting when Luciano Burti crashed his car at Spa-Francorchamps. That was one FAST crash!

That is one MEAN picture!!

But looking into the corner??!....Seems to me as if he is looking at the throttle..."Hmmm, in what direction am I supposed to turn this darn thing again..?!" :p

That's what I thought at first but in looking again I think he is looking at the ground going "damn I don't think I should be this close,what kind of tires am I running again?"

I've seen some pics of people at near those angles that didn't crash, I'll see if I can find them.

That's the point, he DID ride it out. Not like the pic of Tady above, where he crashed a split second after the photo was taken.

I like scanning old posts for info and stuff that might have been gone over already and came accross this...and just had to repost it:)
I think it was back in the beginning when I was still riding a gixxer and was afraid to post:cool:

Unless

Nobody here has been that low on the street:fact UNLESS you were in the process of crashing your bad:butt self with your DOT tires:lol . Yeah , Okada crashed, Bostrom and the top guys do this lap after lap, but they are on THE BEST tires made, the best bikes, and have abilities that mortal man can only glimpse;)
