    whats that wheelie thing that they wheel to the tyre before the pilion jumps on. is it a tyre warmer?
  2. Looks like its a starter box, so they dont have to roll start the bike...
  3. Not a tyre warmer, they're starting the bike.

    Mamola crashed with a pillion at the GP this year. I heard some guy behind me say "and that's why I'd never get on the back"... I was about to ask him how he could pass up an opportunity like that when the pillion jumped straight back on and Mamola completed the lap.=D>
  4. Ahhh so that was who was riding the duke
  5. Lol yep saw him bin in at Honda with a pillion on. That was funny as! Then a little smoke show to prove his manhood after they roll started it :D
