    that was definitely sick

    and at about 1:10 did Rossi drop 2 fucking wheels in the grass while in a damn lean AND KEEP IT :shocked:

    so thats what its like to see two riders at the top of their game battling it out :eek:

    that video could only be made better by either a) the actual race soundtrack (read: bikes) or b) with a different song. otherwise, fantastic.

    That was worse than grass my friend...... fuggin' SAND !!!!! :eek:

    Words don't even describe. Did you see the shot from Rossi's bike when Stoner left that line out of the last turn before the straight? If not go back and fast forward the video to 1:29 exactly and watch.... You don't see some drifters lay lines as pretty and smokey as that one.

    As I learn to trust the bike more (the 1200ZX) I'm doing better at cornering, and doing some things that I never thought I would. I took a highway entrance ramp at a lean, under heavy throttle. The entrance ramp had a peak to the hill, and the bike started to lift off the road surface slightly. I pulled it down into a slight bit more of a lean (After it landed, of course) and was REALLY impressed at how it gripped. I rolled the edge of the 200 tire doing that.

    Just wondering, when was that race? I remember seeing this like a couple months ago.

    :shrug: I guess I saw something similar; it involved Rossi too though.

    Just a FYI Rossi has been in more crazy motorcycle racing videos then anyone else.
    from wrecking his team mates to doing crazy stuff like riding off the road and back onto it without dumping the bike.
