I’ve been watching MotoGP w a subscription this year..it’s fantastic

Second to the bizarre 60 degree lean angles and elbow pucks… :popcorn:

Everyone is pretty much getting up and walking away from serious injuries..yes there are exceptions but few and far between. Long run offs, gravel traps, hi tec body armor, airbags etc are doing a great job

I watched a honda rider, Nakagami ? I believe, get unceremoniously dumped off at 185 at the end of a front straight ..checked in w the medical tent, new leathers, onto a back up bike and he’s back on the track
