7. Oops


As many times as this photo has crossed my computer screen, it never fails to give me a laugh followed by an uncomfortable tightness in the pit of my stomach. Motorcycle riders, in general, and racers, in particular, depend on those round black things that work so marvelously at keeping us upright in the many situations where we should’ve ended up on our heads. Since I’ve experienced sudden rear tire deflation on a race track at speed, I know the sensation of feeling like the rear wheel is somehow disconnected from the bike is more than a bit irksome while leaned over in a 100+ mph sweeper. I can’t imagine what it is like to have the wheel literally separate from the bike at speed.

    I enjoy these silly 10 lists but this one sets a new standard. Great job.

  • Alexander Pityuk

    I don’t know if it really fits here in this list, but i think it’s just too good to ignore it.

    • Evans Brasfield

      A similar one almost made it into the list. 🙂

    I’m not sure what exactly the bike in #5 is (2000-ish CR250 set up for asphalt?), but I REALLY want to swing a leg over it!

  • Ajit Menon

    found a really good one recently

  • Jon Kanter

    Hey, #1 is my Meme!!! How cool, it started on my photo page Jkanter Photography and has over 75K views. Cool!

    • Evans Brasfield

      Cool! As I wrote, it is the one that inspired this whole top 10 list.
