That kind of like the caber throw. at the outdoor games in Scotland, where they throw a log.
This guy looks like a natural, if he can throw a Hayabusa, well...

I guess he didn't win. maybe the high jump or pole vault with a busa contest. Insane photo. interesting, did he wheelie the bike and 12 o clock it vaulting in vertically?

i don't think it was so much an engineering advantage rather than a rider advantage. at that pace i could have wupped him on a piaggio or vespa.

Damn! Look at how his feet are digging in... his left toe is bent, his right is laying a skid mark. Just how did that happen? Maybe he wheelied up, bike bounced and then flipped? Wonder if there is video anywhere... and if his butt crack got a bloody shining just moments later. Tell yah what, you don't want that falling on you.
