    I thought this was an impressive save from in an Impreza:

    If you watch the steering wheel you can see how much lock he puts on at top speed:

    Yeah he done very well to save that, could have been embarrassing as he was only about a mile in the 37 mile course

    Just how calm was the co driver though!

    As someone aptly put it, defying the laws of physics - have to agree, can't believe he managed to keep it going.

    Yeah I can't believe the co-driver pretty much says nothing and both continue on as if nothing has happened.

    No, clearly the bike was unbalanced therefore the rider had to balance it to keep it going as anyone familiar with motorbike racing and/or physics would know.

    How exactly can you say he didn't save it based on what you saw? The camera pans away... People can get themselves out of a tank slapper and even the guy himself talked about how he saved himself as did people who were there

    The bike was in a tank slapper and he was struggling to stay on, if you … The bike was in a tank slapper and he was struggling to stay on, if you think he balanced it you have never ridden a bike at a fast pace



    I have ridden bikes quickly but that's irrelevant, you can clearly see he does a great job saving the bike from a very messy situation, it's only you that seems to believe otherwise so I'll leave you to your usual delusion/trolling/whatever if you believe everyone is wrong but you.

    What a load of waffle, gyroscopic effect? Nine times out of ten when a bike goes into a tank slapper like that, the bike goes down and the rider is thrown off, you obviously don't watch much bike racing, usually when a bike starts moving like that there is only one way it is going to end and it doesn't involve the bike "saving itself" , of course dan saved it, it was going sideways at one point
