Whimpy MotoGP riders

Ok I just watched the race and I am sorry but its a dam shame non of the guys can pick up a bike after crashing. Seriously Rossi crashes and cant even lift the thing but can bounce and skip and tumble at over 100 + mph and get up like nothing happened. Its even more embarrassing watching the little asian guys and Ladies lift the bike like nothing.

Hell I am willing to bet those machines weigh less then a factory bike

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I believe that's what cornerworkers are for I think these guys are told to leave the bike and get out of harms way .

But some of these guys are nothing but 95lbs soaking wet HALF PINTS

picking a bike up in gravel/grass is hard, if you don't have the right leverage it slides away from you.

Good point. Plus they just crashed! and they train for fitness, endurance, stamina, etc... and strength. But they don't need a bunch of muscle mass. They aren't racing with a refrigerator on their backs.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

So you are hot..... you have been working hard at riding a GP bike for the
last 15 minutes..... you crash tumble and stop. Trying to gather your wits
about you....you run to find your bike half buried in gravel.

Is it running ? Can it continue ? Does it have throttle, brakes, clipons, footrests ?

Can I pick it up in the gravel ?



I think there is a LOT that goes into it..... not to mention the size thing.

Every time i've crashed at the track, the corner workers are shocked that I can pick my bike up myself. I don't think there are too many average to smaller riders that can upright a motorcycle in the grass/gravel

God Damn it Blanery - My pt exactly - You are so hyped up and in the zone when you are in race mode that to suddenly be thrown from that and onto the ground is quite a jolt - NOW, try and do all the things you THINK you can do and AS FAST AS YOU CAN SO AS NOT TO LOSE Ps

Let me know how that works out fer ya

As a racer should you be concerned w/ being more bulky and strong so you can lift your downed bike or light and nimble so you can be a blur on the track?

I doubt they would have any trouble putting downed bike upright. If you know how to do it (use your legs), it is possible to do with practically any bike. As long as you are strong enough to ride it, you should be able to pick it up, at least once. I know that for a fact - just this spring I practiced lifting downed HD Road King in the riding school, several times during a day. And they are close to 800lbs. I think it's just they are not supposed to because of all the things already mentioned here.

I thought, for the most part, they are told not to pick them up for fear they throw their back out or something. It's less money lost to have your rider crash out of one race, then loose a season to a back injury trying to get a bike back up.

lifting a bike in the kitty litter can be difficult, especially if you're trying to do it with one hand, because you've got your other hand on the clutch to keep it from dying. No e-start on those bikes.

And no, there isn't any rule about it and they're not trying to avoid throwing out their backs. If you watched the race you'd see that they attempt it and simply fail at it, because it really isn't the easiest thing to do, especially for a 120lbs pipsqueak.
