impressive timing
did you use multiple shooting mode
or was this just one press?

i think the other photographer is thinking "why was wasnt i looking through the view finder"

I think I took it using single shot mode, but I just kept pressing the shutter button and caught several during this sequence.

I still have trouble getting used to these new fangled things with continious shooting modes, but a least I have stopped looking for the film wind lever between shots.

These sort of accidents while they may look spectacular are realy quite minor. The key is the leather riding suit that are designed for sliding along the ground to gradually slow the rider.

Not so Roy,this is World Superbike,modified 1000cc sportbikes(like you can buy at the dealers,Honda,Yamaha,Ducati,etc...)more elaborate mods than AMA Superbike with much more factory involvement and support....

Those ice racers you refer to are a much different machine and the riders are not at the world level....plus they race on ice and the WSBK are on asphalt road courses.....

Also note that Troy Corser(the gentleman captured in this wonderful image here) is a multi Superbike champion and riding the new BMW superbike(which is new to the series this year).....

Really was not trying to correct you Roy but more to remove any confusion others may have on these riders and their equipment....

I had a motorcycle shop and had several teams that campaigned the AMA Superbike series for several years in the middle to late 80's and other supporting classes along with the endurance series mostly at the privateer level with minimum factory support.I built these bikes ,engines and all, hence the Motorman handle ....
