    Fake ass moto GP news. The rider is at 64. The bike is way higher.

    Great shots and questions about lean angles. I'd add that street cars have trouble getting to 1 G force in a corner. For most, with street tires 1 G is maximum. If you use high school physics 1 G in a corner, outside force equals downward force of gravity, and you have the perfect 45 degrees. Anything past that is better than a street car on the corners. 64 degrees is mind boggling, I just can't get my head around that. Then to think, they get air at that lean angle over a bump, so they don't go vertical when they get air, they launch at the lean angle. If they did launch vertical it would instantly destabilize the bike. So imagine launching off a bump at 64 degrees sideways, and the centrifugal force brings you back. The physics baffles the eyes. Now you are the engineer designing the next chassis, and somehow you have to understand these forces running through the frame. Recall steel frames flex, which as it turns out is a good thing, after Ducati tried to make one out of carbon fibre, which doesn't flex at all. Proof is in their performance after Casey left. Riding this beast, is pure skill far about F1 driving IMO.

    I've had my knee down, quickly followed by the rest of my body and the bike.

    Don't let this distract you from the fact that if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

    I once rode into a trench by the side of the road….and for about two seconds I got an eighty degree angle…..:-)))). Ouch.
