holy shit!!! talk about a lean!!

i don't think he's actually moving. probably tipped the bike over and mounted it to make it look like a lean

Yup, your right. I remember seeing that pic too in another thread here some time back. The rider in the photo replyed to the thread, said he did indeed crash and provided some additional pics that followed the one above.
Great pic no matter what.

He wiped it because his blue extralong swingarm sliders hit the track and lifted his rear tire off the pavement. I dont think he kept them after that lowside.

Thanks! :) I just couldn't imagine being that far down and NOT heading straight into a getoff...

Of course, if he was that far down and it was his swingarm sliders that did him in, I'm still REALLY impressed

Yeah, that definately looks like a millisecond before the bike comes out from underneath him. LOL

IIRC, there's a guy named Chad that works at Bikes 2NV here in Columbus that told me once that it was him at Grattan. Might've been one of the other Midwestern tracks. 'Course he might've just been blowing smoke up my ass....
