    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Although it does not look like a he, yes they can.

    Or- maybe they were counting on the roll bar?

    With that much daylight under the tire on such a heavy bike, I don't think many people could save that.

    I tried the same manouevre 3 times this year on my 125. twice I crashed, and once I was able to put the wheels back on the ground and the bike stood up. The corner worker was juming up and down cheering! Of course I was pointed straight at the wall in turn 2, but I got it stopped and back on track without falling.

    Even on my 160 lb 125, it took such a big effort from the back of my outside leg to get the wheels down that it cramped so bad I couldn't move it for the rest of the lap.

    The problem is that you have no other point from which to push the bike up. Even with my elbow and ass on the ground, pulling the wheels back under me with my outside leg was the only way to gather that up.

    Aside from all the crap he/she is doing WRONG (and there are plenty!)... strictly from a photographic point of view... that is a really cool photo. I only hope it's real and not created.

    Perhaps he/she can see roadkill around the corner, off which he will push with left knee to upright his ride... or perhaps there is a UPS truck which makes lots of things moot points...

    You're right, I think you can tell that it's a chick by the cute butt and the fact that she's crashing. (I think I better duck and cover now)

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Lots of guys have longer hair... chances are high that it's a guy and, if that's true, you just said that a guy has a cute butt...

    My question is, is that a right-hand-drive rider turning too short and crossing the double yellow, or a left-hand-drive rider running wide out of the turn?

    Seemed to me like the latter, as in not-of-this-country

    you read it here first, folks! perhaps an "out of the closet" thread is next?! HAH!

    any chance that it says wherever you found it, whether it is a guy or a girl?
