Still Deluding Yourself?

Just in case you think dragging a knee is a big deal, Red Bull and Casey Stoner used some insanely high tech equipment to show how far a MotoGP bike can lean.

"You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

The gyro cam they use occasionally is awesome too. It stays flat with the horizon while the bike and rider lean nearly 60 degrees. awesome stuff.

Looks to me like this bike is pushing a lot more than 60 degrees.

Jean-Phillipe Ruggia was doing it 20 years ago before traction control and fancy electronics. On a squirrelly 2-stroke no less.
