I love this picture...

Elbow down, knee not...Ben Spies at work at Infineon. From Dunlop's current ad in Road Racer X.

I'd like to give it a shot at a track with tall curbs. A guy I race with did it at Mid-Ohio and said it's pretty cool...

I like that photo.

This Senna is owned by Dave Whattam from the Yahoo group, he used to lend it out to magazines for road tests

The rider I believe is Paul Young when he did a "best of the 750's" road test for Fast bike Magazine,there were also pictures of the hole he wore through his leathers at the elbow!

The circuit is Brands Hatch, and I suspect the picture was taken around Druids and the bike was on std road tyres! Dragon Evo Corsa I seem to remember, Dave still owns the bike now

Crazy photos. That senna 750 picture has been a long time favorite. Too bad I have never come across a high res version!

Yeah, it's Jamie Wilkins or whatever, your average stunt pulling UK journo dipshit (not that most american ones are any better).

It's cool when it happens because of circumstance, but I have to say it looks pretty silly when one tries to do it. I know Turbo does it on his Ducati and that's fine and all, but it doesn't have anything to do with going fast, it's just a stunt unless you're JP Ruggia or Ben Spies...
