[BI'm gonna go and watch the Boxer Cup races next year.Donnington, 28 April. Already in me diary (and the diary only arrived yesterday).Can't wait [/B]
Stop this right now!
and the photo below is quite clearly airbrushed. I recon the front wheel is actually glued to the back of a lorry or connected to a hot air balloon
Go to the bike show.Go to the BMW standWatch the Boxer Cup video (behind the race R1100S)See what Randy Mamola and co can do
i'm sure they can counter-steer though, can't all bikes?
taken from the rec.motorcycles faq:What's this about shaft-driven motorcycles not counter-steering or wheelying? Balderdash. It's a boring old joke used to start flamewars and confuse newbies.
<SM Mode>That video shows the absolute talents of the special effects man in action. It is not Randy Mamola doing a wheelie, rather a morphing of the video image to suggest that a shaftie can wheelie. Neither do shafties counter-steer, they can only CONTRA- steer</SM Mode> Did someone say the other day that we hadn't had this discussion for a few weeks?
