OUCH!!! (MotoGP crash)

A video of Jorge Lorenzo's crash in practice for the China GP. No subtitles needed.

Ouch

Scary as hell... probably. He didn't look too hurt, though.

Fractured ankle, went on to qualify and finish 4th IIRC. Not bad for the spill he took.

The SR-71 is extremely fast, but has the lift coefficient of a piano, so keep the throttles spooled.

lol okay.

I tried one of the SRs for Flight Gear... I couldn't even get it up over 600 Knots. Free games, free add-ons. Sigh.

Won't even go that high. 20,000 and it goes into a flat spin.

I can take her up to 10,000 and pitch straight down and not break 600 Knots. There is no trade for trade. That is just simply a poorly made model.
