Same 2018 World Superbike Round

I find the deflection of the rear tyre incredible, as it transmits all that power to the road through such a small area of contact.

And one last image until I get to the next car, or bike race.

I’m lucky, for a number of years my son bought me tickets for this event, for Christmas.

Ouch, again at the same meeting at Snetterton. One of the lower class races in which riders try to make a name for themselves, often trying too hard and ending up on the floor

Someone else trying too hard

The idea is to kick the bike away so it doesn’t land on you

And another

Sliding down the road at 70mph can’t be all that much fun

Another night to be spent in the workshop; the body will health itself whereas the bike has to be fixed
