This is a great action shot and a crazy trade!! I'm impressed with the number of people who are thinking outside of the box and going with the less traditional.

Great post!!

Although I have ridden motorcycles most of my life (I've owned six of them) I was never confident enough to lay a bike over in a tight high speed turn like that. I always worried that the tires would slip out from under me. As long as the track is dry and the tires are in good shape, it is safe. I note that those are smooth racing tires. That makes a difference, too.

Outstanding shot.

Very nice action shot... he must be going at a pretty fast rate of speed to be able to traverse the track at that angle.

Thanks guys for the comments.



Those guys really push it to the edge. I don't think I'd have the courage, either, to lay it down like that. I was lying beside the track once at the outside of a curve when one of the guys fell, I have a great shot of the dirt flying up as the bike slid towards me.



For some reason I don't have any shots after that :-)

This picture is great ! But it makes me wonder why I used to ride.

Ahh... Too be young and dumb again.

Yessir,

I always said if the footpegs aren't ground down fy the asphalt, the bike has't really been ridden. (and I've got the scars to go with it)
