That indicated some serious skill right there; The way he let the front correct itself and his legs loose and trailing out sort of counterbalanced it. If he had gripped too hard or tried to right it against the machine he was going to lose some skin. Those bikes are amazing don't you think?
 
yes sir

amazing recovery

i'd love to see that race in person

The world’s deadliest motorcycle race is also Subaru’s rally proving grounds

The Isle of Man is a 221 square-mile plot of earth residing between the Irish and English nations. To a small population, it’s known as home, but to most, it’s known as the stage for one of the most dangerous races in the world.

For over a century, motorcycle riders have risked life and limb traversing a 37.5-mile loop (large enough to fit dozens of the world’s most famous race circuits within it) at maximum speeds. The Tourist Trophy (TT) is certainly the most important event of the year for residents, both as a historical point of unity and a flood of tourism capital.

While many of the best international tracks share real estate between motorbikes and cars, the Isle of Man is exclusively a two-wheeled affair… or rather it was. In 2011, Subaru entered the picture, becoming a title sponsor for the TT races and sending a stock 2011 WRX STi around the loop in just under 20 minutes to break the previous vehicle lap record. While many spectators enjoyed seeing a Subi rip around the course at the hands of IOM resident Mark Higgins, other “traditionalists” were not pleased with the four-wheeled intruder.

Since 2011, Subaru has returned to set faster records in stock STi’s but has always been an afterthought for race coordinators, often being delayed or completely booted from the two-week program’s time slots. This year, Subaru returned with a dedicated rally car and set a new record of 17 minutes 35 seconds, just 31 seconds off the pace of the fastest-ever lap (set by a bike).

Despite Subaru’s financial and intangible contributions to the TT, it still receives resistance from some fans and officials. Hurdles be damned, the Japanese automaker continues to support the race as the vast majority of spectators offer waves and raised thumbs to Mark Higgins as he flings stock and modified cars around the track with incredible precision.

Just one.
She was extremely disappointed. {#Lol}
It was a good opportunity to explain to her about receiving gifts that you may not like.

She's definitely a tom boy.
Loves Spider Man so much, she wears boys Spider Man underwear... they don't make Spider Man girls under wear.

Ha! I was so lucky... I had leggos, model planes AND an easy-bake oven! Maybe my parents were as confused as I was {#Tongue}

BTW, nice track, Kurt!

Wait....you have a copy of that!?!?! Cool!

Those electronic controllers you talked about are really nice, but are extremely pricey. Especially when you have to buy 4 of those turkeys.


Agreed, its expensive to buy one in a lot of cases, let alone four. Some of them aren't too expensive, but honestly I still use my Parma part of the time anyway.
