I could only wish I was that good to recover from that type of slip up.

I'd say that save was half skill and half luck. But still a nice save.

That was awsome. He barely let off the throttle and saved it. Don't see it end up like that to offten.

I've seen that before and it's amazing to watch everytime.

His left leg seems limp as he gets back on, as if he broke something. But looking at the video, I can't see where he could have broken something.

That happened to me once at 170 mph on a dark road and I was all by my self so no one could videotape it. I also did a back flip twice and stood on my tank. It's too bad no one saw it. Not only would my heart skip a beat but my pants would be full of you know what!

Great save! I just wish I could be so lucky!

That's why they tell the racers to hang on until you cant.

Its more so you will be closer to the bike at the end, just incase it is still rideable, to get back to the pit or just finnish the race.

alot of saves like that just comes down to luck and not being your time to crash....ive had some spetacular saves in a race, with people comming up to me after and saying "great save" etc, and all i did was hold on and the bike just sort of stayed up and didnt spit me off...
