I keep struggling with how to embed youtube here, hope this works?

Anyway, looking at it now, wrong forum, sorry mods...

Loris Capirossi stated in the 'closer to the edge' docu, that it freaked him out that the guys didn't go off the throttle for some of the corners...

My overall skill level is around 10m off the floor of the Marianas Trench , those guys are ramping off the peak of Everest .


I try to " ton up (mph)" every time I ride .
If another motorist is being particularly annoying I will take a nice run at a pass and hit 200 ( kph ) at the drivers door .
Nothing says you are going too slow like 1050 CCs screaming through a Comp Werks pipe at 2+times their own speed .

That's about as good as it gets here . No legal tracks
