How not to look...

Saw this pic of F1 driver Liuzzi on Hopkins bike and just had to point out that if you look like that going through the corner you should stop and get some pointers from your local CR.

He got custom leathers for an f'n test ride? Shit, I need a new gig!

Rossi openly admits to not looking through the corners. Then again, what's his number this year? NOT #1. Of course, the previous 7 championships might show he's onto something.

Well at least he looks to the inside of the turn and not out in la la land.

well his upperbody looks a little stiff to the bike, but his ass is off the seat, his elbows are down, he looks (from that picture) like he is on the right part of the turn, and his knee isn't touching, but it's close, which given that the bike is probably setup properly, means he is probably cooking pretty good, and considering that isn't HIS race bike, and if he wads it up trying to run 100% it might upset a few redbull people, I would say he is doing a pretty good job

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

+1 He also seems to be a fun good natured guy, enjoying the moment....

In other news... Hopper's lap time was about 5 seconds behind the regular F1 guys. But it's probably easier to drive a car fast from a bike, compared to the other way.

Don't make me come to the A group and show you how it's done.

If you grease my rotors, maybe I won't over brake. Maybe I should try that.
