I got the styker front end up... wasn't on purpose or a hard launch... Big bump with a hard 1-2 shift at the wrong time while passing an idiot... Scared the crap out of me besides the bump but when I felt the handle bars get light and then feel the wheel hit the road again. needless to say i never want to do that again.

I've managed to get a little lift on the 1-2 shift myself. I've contemplated trying to clutch it up just to see if it can, haha.

I've done it as well. I was waiting to turn left at a light during an accident, there was people gauking while and crap taking their time, my window of opportunity came up and I gunned it. Then all of a sudden I felt that bad boy left up :eek:. Don't know what I did, but would love to try it again if I knew how. **** I can't even do a burn out. Not that I would if I did. ::)

Thats a very bad photoshop. I mean, who races with thier visor half up? The drag strip wouldn't allow it. I may be wrong but I feel pretty good about this one.

I'm not saying the Raider could not do this, but I'm with Christ, I believe its photoshop. Look at the Raider, it cast a shadow, but the large white media divider doesn't.

Yeah i would have to agree... looks like they did motion blur to make it look "FAST"
Plus the guy in the busa hasnt even staged yet... and I could be wrong but most race tracks require full leathers to race bikes. So for that guy to be wearing jeans doesnt seem right

We Should take a vote. I say it's Real!! The large white media banner is built as a triangle - so no shadow possible with sun at that time of day.

the bike wouldnt cast a shadow on the devider cus its behind it.... looks real but im always wrong lol
Wasn't talking about the bike casting a shadow on the divider, but the divider itself should be casting a shadow on the pavement. If the bike casts a shadow then the divider has to as well. Simple physics. :)

Any solid matter which a light beem cannot penitrate, casts a shadow when a light beem it directed at it.

the shadow might be from the bike bieng in the air? sun might be over head and not shadowing the sign but would shadow something above the ground

I could do this all day. ;D If we were to agree that you are right, then there would be a shadow at the very front (or back how ever you want to look at it) of the divider.

As Stated earlier, Divider is a triangle and at the right angle so that no shadow to cast.

Sorry but as stated before all solids will cast a shadow whether it is a right angle or not. The thing you have to take into account here is the angle of the light. Because we were not there the only evidence we can use is the angle that the shadow the bike is casting. Using that same angle you most have a shadow from your right angle divider. ;D ;D
