I think the choice of clips, plus the music background makes this one of the better ones I've seen.

Those guys sure can ride !!

Um...I'd called that "trail braking", wouldn't you?

Is trail braking when you're powering out of a corner with the rear tire lit up and stepped out? I always thought that trail braking was "backing it in"?

As they enter a corner, hard on the front brakes, they then roll on the throttle lighting up the rear tire until their past the apex, then they let go of the brakes which slingshots them into a new direction. Colin Edwards (the 'Texas Tornado') really did this well.

Man that part where the bike is following Rossi and he trail braked it out of that corner with the tire lit up going sideways leaving him behind like the Millenium Falcon hitting light speed is AWESOME.

Or that one where the guy trail braked it out of that huge corner going totally sideways accelerating onto the straightaway like a mad man and he just yanked on the bike to get it to keep trail braking sideways until he had it where he wanted it, then just jumps right onto the seat!!! Man that is cool!

Some things you just are meant to watch in awe...so very cool. I'm glad there are guys who can do that... and apply it on the track. It might be a good idea to have folks get some instruction in proper riding techniques to handle bikes in critical situations...

In the straights, over 210mph. The curves have a wide range from 70mph to 140mph, depending on the severity.
