    Wait a minute...according to this study, you are less likely to be killed if drunk them is you had no alcohol?
    "In 2010, 29 percent of fatally injured riders had a blood alcohol concentration at or above the legal limit of .08, the highest of all motorists."

    so...71 % of those who died had less then .08%....which appears to show it is better to be hammer then straight.

    I am going to have to rethink this who non drunk driving thing...

    Nice find, Shogs.
    "Backing it in" par excellance. Nearly had that perfected. If the road shoulder had been a little smoother, he mighta come to an upright standstill. And the clip would have made the "Awesome" thread. O'course, iffn he had continued to leave the wheel spin-up, he mighta burned a donut out of the shoulder and continued on his merry way with none the worse for wear? I know that when it is going really bad for me that I am just looking to save my hide and not trying for an immaculate 'save'. But to get so close to an immaculate save and miss it? That really hurts. That rider will have a lifetime of 'woulda-shoulda" thoughts watching this clip. I know that iffn it was me, I would. I can really feel it for this rider.

    Excellent! Outstanding line! I hope someone steals it for a sig line. I think that I will post that on my top box for a while and see how much fun it draws. Mucho thanx for that one.

    More like rolling the throttle on while on the limit of adhesion.
    Been there done that.

    As was previously posted....

    The rider's right hand was hard on the front brake. In a curve, Go to a "first timers" track day. See what the instructors say about braking in a corner.

    That guy came real close to having the handlebars(bike) come down on his head. At first it looked like he was pulling a Blues Brothers parallel park job to the curb. :D
