"Just waiting" could have been a contender, as the rear shot of the bike is great........just couldn't cope with those socks  :o

Only one winner for me - voted  ;D

We used to have a Superbike rider in Oz called Marty Craggil, he was known as "Mad Eyes" for his withering stare while on the bike.  But holy cow, he had nothing on Marnix! :D  Top shot.
"More Cylinders" a close second, with "what a waste" and "just waiting" both emotive race shots.
cheers

More than 69 for me.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

Just realised I was on "No - it's that way"! ;D  Seen the pic before but never studied it closely.

Still, the mega-focused Marnix for me too.

180s feel quick, 120s are...      If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

Steve B took a pic of me on a Snowy Run once and made a similar comment about the look on my face,he thought I was burning my eye line into the road.In reality I was thinking who the fuck is this bloke hiding in the bush taking my picture in the middle of nowhere while I was braking one or two possible laws at the time.
