The question is: how many back tyres and clutch plates does it take to get this good? Oh, and scabby elbows...
Improbable is always admirable. But the best bit about this video isn't the fact that this scooter sounds (and goes) like a competition 'crosser it's the fact that the guy can really ride.Imagine trying to keep up with this on your 1000cc sportsbike.Shocker.
Poor Ashley Beech. You've gotta feel for him.After a fraction too much throttle on the run down to Donington's Old Hairpin, the rear breaks grip amd he starts what should be a graceful slide across Craner Curve's neatly mown grass.While Ashley
