    Whoops..... big whoops.

    $150k former GP bike up in flames.


    Well there's your problem...


    Word is the guy was black flagged for leaking fuel and he ignored it. Next session it got worse and it backfired which caught the bike and the gas can behind it on fire....that shit was crazy. I've never seen any thing like it.

    Props to all you firefighters out there. I was about 50 feet away when it went up and I wasn't going 1 step closer to it. It looked like a 8x8x8 ball of fire......:tremble

    I didn't take these.

    I like the last picture the best, looks like it was the victim of a random lightning strike. Maybe he can submit that to his insurance company.

    The bike is/was a Harris YZR500 that was just restored. It took him two years to restore it and this was his first outing with the bike. Sad to look at those photos.

    I still don't get how you can have a "$150k" bike and a $150 pit...

    He has a pair of TZ750's as well. I'm sure he pitted there to avoid crowds hanging around it.

    Cool. A friend has a former aamrr era tz750 in his collection. Hopefully he fires it up someday. I should say starts it up.

    Re: Whoops..... big whoops.

    its probably a good thing he had a 150 dollar pit. I'm sure pit fire insurance is hard to come by...now hes only out a tent on top of the bike.
    I weiner how insurance will file this? Negligence? How do you value a bike like that?!

    Have to agree with that.

    Hard to imagine the guy saying, "Hmm... Fuel leaking? No big deal, what's the worst that could happen?"
