Apologies in advance if the headline of this week’s Top 10 baited you in, but by virtue of being here, at least a small part of you enjoys seeing a good highside. There’s something about seeing a rider, bike, or both catapulted into orbit that captures our imagination.

For this particular list, I found 10 of my favorite racing highsides available on YouTube, each sure to make you go OOOHHHHH! like the commentators in the clips. Most are from the Grand Prix circus, both two- and four-stroke, but there are entries from other championships as well. Clearly, a list of 10 isn’t nearly enough for a category like this, so if you have a favorite highside, share it with us in the comments section. And, oh yeah, none of the riders on the list were seriously injured.
