Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

Marc Coma goes very fast on a circuit - not so sure he's into aerobatics...

;D

I'd bet my last cent that the bike was stripped of all actual rallye kit. What you see is just empty tanks and a fairing. No way he's gonna do that with  20kg's worth of nav kit and full tanks.

Still impressive though!

I've seen Travis Pastrana do a back flip in his back yeard with a old 80's road bike (something like a Kawa 750 or Katana size) - he kinda broke it on the way down, but he got it all the way around and wheels touching down 1st.

I think the back flip is part 'over wheelie' on the launch and part 'torque turn' from the back wheel.

If guys on snowmobiles can do backflips, then there shouldn't be an issue with a big bike doing it.

Check the empty stands though. I think the video was taken during practice.

The pics were taken at showtime

I like the way the headlight shines on the ground just before touch down.

;D ;D

He has to ride the DAKAR in 6 months time, he's got balls but he ain't stupid.
