    Not unreal. Just unrealistic for mere mortals.

    There comes a time on every bike when you’re hauling ass and you realize that you are going way too damn fast It’s normally when you feel the bike wiggle underneath you as you crest a hill, and that’s when your sphincter tightens up so fast that you suck your seat straight up your ass, thus ensuring that if the bike goes over, you’ll be attached to it.

    And from what I can see, every single rider in that race is riding in that exact condition. Holy Hell, I think I’d piss myself when I felt the bike go wobbly at 169mph. That’s if I had the time to react, because I’m pretty sure I would just think “Ah crap, this thing is goi…….. ” BAM!

    And I’m speaking as someone who’s ground metal off his footpegs trying to lean far enough into a turn to keep from sliding off the road.

    I’ve read that in flying, there’s this thing called “staying ahead of the aircraft,” meaning paying strict attention to what’s going on, and not letting things get away from you so that a cascade of errors cannot occur ending with you running out of airspeed or altitude.

    Watching those guys, all I kept thinking is “how do you stay ahead of the bike?” One guy is riding his like a unicycle, using the front end as a rudder in the air! They have to clank when they walk!

    But yes, there are deaths. That’s what makes it worth doing.
