Did anyone else in the Denver metro area watch channel 7 news last night and see the stunter on the 03 R1 going down I - 70??? The photos were taken by the news team, and they were good pics, just no pic of the plate, which is nice. Good riding by the way, if the stunter is a member here. Like the wheelie!!!

They showed still pics and no video on the news. It is an 03 R1, black w/flames and a red high mount pipe. Looked like a Micron, but don't quoye me on that. The guy was riding on the right side of the bike in one shot, doind a superbike wheelie in another and a couple other tricks. I thought it was sweet. It was only a minute or two spot. They said the police have no idea if it was random or a "growing" trend. They also have no leads!!!

you guys luckily don't have the same problem as we do over here. Any bad publicity = raised insurance rates. we're already into the 10G mark for full coverage on any bike with more than 150hp.

From the News Channel 7 camera man:

""My concern was that I didn't want them under my wheel. I-70 has a lot of potholes and debris. If they had hit one bump, they could go either way. I managed to take a few frames but I was also looking for an out," Betancourt said."

I'm willing to bet money this guy in his news van was speeding to keep up with the bike. If he were so concerened about the riders safety, why didn't he back off a bit? Looking for a way out my a**!
