Makes NASCAR drivers look like pedal car drivers. This takes real skill, balls, and a certain lack of sanity.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Rider just doesn't make it here. More like Pilot.

I imagine a few riders and spectators have met their end on that track.

Ya it kills some of the best.

I ride fast and ive done it in the rain, but no where near that level. I want to live.

Had the wheels start spinning over 100 when I was on the gas, rolled out of it too quick and started sliding the rear, had to get on the gas to even it back out before slowly backing out of it to regain traction. Pucker moment I hope I don't have to relive again.

That is dangerous and they shouldnt do that because if I did it I would kill myself. Motorcyclist must stop this or else the govt will shut them down... Sounds pretty stupid huh?

I rode year round for 2 years In Chicago area. I got sick of crashing on intersections. Theres no such thing as a curve around here so id try and drag a knee in intersections. They were oily and I was crashing all the time, kinda like when I flew the 450.

Volcano, what is ironic about that statement is that (unlike our helis) all those Race Bikes do have to meet "many many" racing standards and tech inspections set forth by the Racing Commission,,,, again, unlike our helis

so the question, is, would you be happy to have standards and monthly tech inspections on your heli to be able to fly at a Club field, not me

No but id never race in the rain either. Those guys have big balls. Tech inspections are for vehicles people ride in or on, and for good reason, those machines are pushed beyond the limits.

Love ya brother but those riders all be it the best in the world

Are not riding those machines beyond the limits.

They are riding them exactly how they were designed, and its the pilots that are holding the bikes back from going faster.

That racing is exciting ! I just think they should cover their funeral expences up front, and be responsible for all their own medical.
