    Bloody amazing!

    I think the green bike was pissed off at the white bike and was
    hell-bent on "giving it some."


    Onya bike

  3. The rider of the green bike was pissed off because his bike would have run
    all the rubber off one side of the tyre.
    But, it did take the flag marshalls a long time to actually get there.

  4. Why do these bikes not stall?

    Because the handlebars are locked and the throttle on the bike with the
    wheel on the ground is obviously pinned open.

  6. When I was racing bikes, I saw so many bikes fall over and jam on the
    So I designed and built a device which was routed through the spark and cut
    out when it got to a certain rev
    It was also matched up with a mercury switch, which made the engine miss
    when it got over a certain angle of lean.
    I used it and it worked well, then I showed it to someone and being a
    helpful person that I am, I gave them the prototype,
    They then proceeded to re-design it and put it out on the market.
    It cost me about $5 to make.
    A few other riders at the time, made a cut-out pull rope switch thingy which
    they had attached to their wrist and if they fell off, the rope would pull
    the cut-out from the switch and shut the motor down.
    That cost about $2 to make

  7. Most modern sportsbikes have the first one. It's called a bank angle
    sensor in Honda speak or a tip switch. Great idea. If the bike is on
    its' side it cuts out instantly.

    Not what you want on a race bike though, so if the class regulations
    don't require it, I doubt anyone would leave one intact.

    Sidecar racers used to be required to have a kill cord, if you parted
    company with the bike then the cord pulled and shut the engine off. I
    believe speedway riders are required to have one too.

    It's well known technology dunno why road racers aren't required to
    have it.

    Superbikes had it as far back as I remember and the top end 600 racers had
    it too.
    with the bike then the cord pulled and shut the engine off. I
