  1. whoa.... :shock:
    id love to see the footage too, anyone know the cause of the fire?
  2. damn... Unscathed witha broken arm... well i guess its all perspective.
  3. Better that than smashed into wall and burnt !!

    Is there photos or video of this ?? Just I have an image in my head of the guy standing on his seat and doing a swan dive, when in realality he prolly just slid of the back and rolled to a stop.
  4. I reckon this guy is short on a few leads with his neural connetions in his head ! :LOL:

    I'd like to meet him though !
  5. Being a drag bike it would have some high octane fuel running rich.
    Drag cars seem to explode in flames quite often.
  6. In actual fact it is usually quite the opposite. More like a lean out & massive backfire, or melting pistons then catching oil in the sump on fire :grin:
  7. Broken arm better than bunt.
  8. I'm actually OK guys. Arm is a little sore but will mend fine. I thought I would go for a little spin while I was up here because it was the only place I could get my hands on a bike as they only hire scooters up here. :p
  9. I thought you were at Amberly ! :rofl:
