How Its Done Son - Love The Wheel Tap

Just a bad muthafuckah right here........

Amazed at how much of the Motor they DON'T use on these 450s in certain spots and all of it in others - Supercross just amazes me to this very day....

He is on a 240 lbs bike that is putting out about 65-70 hp at the wheel and is about 5'6 and 100 lbs - Sliding the rear off a jump into a turn, wheel tapping over a jump to clear the next, upshifting in whoops, down shifting in mid air while they clear a 65+ foot triple, all while bouncing it the fuck off the rev limiter

The above just shows a hole shot check out with no traffic - Imagine doing all this while trying to get past someone and not letting someone pass you

(I could watch thee GoPro SX Vids ALLLLL DAYYYY LONG

The power to weight ratio really put it in prospective. My miata is 2.1k pounds, and 96 bhp. These riders are amazing.

Take an Hour if you have it and check out the MX side - THIS is where my heart is - LOVE the outdoors - 30 min Motos plus (2) laps in 90+ degree heat.....twice in a day? - These cats (nice profile of them) are machines....

K-Dub went on record to say that in all his years of racing ll the people he has, no one irails a corner faster than RV - He powers in, turns with the rear and powers out - Everything you are NOTsuppose to do
