Although the music made this fun I more enjoyed being able to hear the frantic downshifting prior to those squid-inducing corners.
Accelerating out of corners, the front wheel has little or no ground pressure or traction. The pros frequently spin the rear to heat up the the rubber. At moments, Moto GP and superbikes are 100+ mph unicycles with intermittent ground contact.
Kinda stopped caring about F1 after seeing the film "Faster":
I don't doubt it. Either is amazingly athletic too - old farts like me needn't apply. One is just more pants-wettingly scary for me.
Also, it seems F1 and endurance car racing focuses a bit more of the machine and team (at least during the race). The Audi R10 was so dominant at LeMans/Sebring that its now required to carry ballast. Motorcycle racing seems a bit more rider focused - no pit stops, and a Rossi can be just as dominant riding a Aprilia, Honda, or Yamaha.
there are pit stops at Isle of Man, for fuel and rear tire swap.
F1 drivers have to be more fit than motorcyclists, just because they have to take higher G forces, that are also horizontal unlike the vertical g's riders take.
at least we can all agree nascar sucks, especially after seeing how they have to have their circle blow-dried to 'race' on it.
Like riding a dutch angle.
I predict there will be videos of objects in front of this video. Also, favorited for the next time I catch someone on mushrooms.

'Shit I will never do' should be a linked tag.
Barf. Should have put a gyroscope on that camera.
