Some serious lean angles

Look at this guy scraping the pegs on this Husky. I went out to the garage and leaned the Husky over until the pegs touched and the handlebar is only 5" from the ground. Amazing.

Short tracks are fun like that. Dude on the KTM is being balked, especially in T1.

Granted I don't have any racing experience but I don't see how that's even possible. Whenever I go out to a twisty road I use all of the tire except for maybe an 1/8" on the front which I don't see that part getting used unless your braking hard into turns and I am absolutely no where near those angles. It's like they ride the sidewalls.

Here is a vid of that guy you mentioned Albert Roca. He scrapes the pegs while sliding. Rockstar! Wish we had a track that short near Houston. GSS is pretty short but still seems kind of big for a tard. I could see running out of gas on the straight there. My Husky gets squirly over 80 when hard on the gas. Scary squirly.

The Katy track is ideal for motards. It's against the rules of TMGP to go over 150cc, not sure what the track rules are. But, I've heard rumors that it is a very fun track on a big motard, but they lap slower than the 65cc minis.

It's just race tires on motard rims. They are very different profile than street tires. Yes, they are on the sidewalls, almost. But basically it's all about skill at that level.

Yeah, he could've jammed it in there a few times if he wanted to.
I'd like to see the actual race to see if he was as courteous with his passing.

Doesn't seem like you'd be able to get around anyone at that track without trading some paint.
