I was riding in Montana on my way to Lolo Pass one fine day and came across a similar sight. This Ford Ranger was just happily burning like a torch in this Lewis and Clark Trail informational turn-off. I passed it and thought WTF?? so I turned around to get a closer look, thinking maybe someone needed help, but there wasn't a soul around. I stopped a ways from it because I didn't want to be too close if the gas tank decided to blow up while I was gawking. I turned away and rode about three miles and met a fire truck headed out to put the fire out. Very strange.

Had to have the brake applied for it to stop turning. :thumb

A quick shutter speed has the ability to freeze the action

The shutter speed on the photo below was shot at 1/400 of a second , it was taken with a Canon 7D which is capable of having a shutter speed as fast 1/8000 a second

Stop making sense. This is the internet.

You're absolutely correct. But I'm comparing the blur of the rear wheel with the front.

Also, take a look at the image just before this one... Tires are blurred then as well.

Sorry - not trying to argue. But just like the riding position noted earlier, going for the brakes during an "oh shit" moment is pretty typical of an inexperienced rider.

The light changed with the direction of the camera as did the shutter speed

I think the rider's crash bars dragging may be the reason the rider decided to exit the saddle......err had to lay er down:wink:

I have done that. There was gravel under my front tire when I did it and down I went.

I have improved since then. Once is enough :lol3

"Don't chop the throttle and hit the brakes"

"Keep a cool head and ride through the corner"

It looks like he hit the brake to me. It would not matter much he is already in deep shit.

Up a creek with out a paddle (no gear)
