    I do the same thing as Stoner every time I go to the track, but not on purpose.

    Stoner was amazing. So is Marquez. The lean angles those riders achieve are amazing.

    I have a picture of Marquez coming into a corner, braking, starting to turn, with the rear tire off the tarmac. That should not be possible.

    I hope he don't go the Freddie Spencer/Jorge Lorenzo way.

    So, is he leaning really far, or did the bike actually fall on him?

    What's even more impressive is that's and RC213V and not a Yamaha or a Suzuki which are easier to lean.

    I never did that with my choppers. Maybe that’s why I’m here today

    Your honest and luck are most impressive, This stuff is "relatively safe" compared to the Isle Of Mann races, that is some very serious riding, go fast as you can on publicly maintained roads, yikes.

    look they aren't really :eek: bouncing off the seat half off the motorcycles and remounting the bike without losing a place or two at 210 miles and hour while taking sharp corners, they use mirrors, it's just an effective CGI illusion ....:cool:

    I think the most impressive thing about all of these guys, Marquez included, is how they can have these high-sides at 100+ mph, need surgery, and get back on the thing after they recover and just go 10/10ths. Seems like a complete absence of fear. Marquez is really something else.

    I generally ignore the comments section on YouTube to avoid brain damage, but this comment was at the top of the list and it jumped out at me:
