Hig Sides

I like to think this was on the same scale as my slip on turn 4 this weekend during practise, Despite my feet being off the pegs and my arse flying, Carl (who was all over my behind like a oversized pair of Calvins) still only thought i had lost my footing!!!!!

How many times are you going to replay this vid?

Always feels bigger than it is- I remember the first time I had a rear end slide I thought I was doing a Capirossi. The guy behind me pissed himself when I mentioned it, calling it a twitch barely worth mentioning. He reckoned about 2 inches- felt like a 2 feet... Mind you 52 is the master of the understatement. Shame you didn't bin it though- you could have joined our crashers' club

He tried as hard as he could, but he just couldn't wrestle that thing to the ground could he?!

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Was that an Aprilia RS250? He// of a save. Reminds me of the famous Randy Mamola save (Assen '86?). Randy was going much faster mind you.
