Hi! This is Ra' Tek from Jedi HQ. No, you cannot learn the art of riding bikes in different ways....YET! We've heard you loud and clear and we are currently discussing a proposal to send to the High Counsel for review. Keep checking our website for updates!

Also, attention ALL PARENTS. Please drop off your Jedi trainees early today. Remember, your kids are always safe with us! Only civilized weaponry allowed.

Oh please. People, please stop believing this jedi PR. They're nothing but a corrupt cult. "discussing a proposal to send to the high council" (the PR guy can't even spell council properly, you think they can train your youngling in the ancient arts?) my red spiny ass.

Send your younglings to us. We can teach them whatever they want to learn. And you will be sure that with us each student will get individual attention. One master, one apprentice. They will learn powers and ways of communing with the Force that jedis ignorantly fear.

Indian here. Trust me no one finds this funny. And this isn't even the real cringe scene. This is nothing to me. I once saw a scene where a guy threw a heart and it broke the window of the hospital on like the third floor and lodged itself in the open chest of the patient and Christmas lights turned on... Inside the chest. I was too dumbstruck to watch the rest.

I'm Russian and I'm not sure what he meant, I'm not a movie fan anyway but I have an idea and I can give some insight, in Russian language the word anecdote means joke, so may be it means some funny situations tend to happen in Russian and soviet movies, which is true but I'm not sure if OP meant that, let's wait for the answer together

u/diejesus Yep, that's pretty much what I meant. If you've ever watched an older movie from the USSR times (those are really great, even with subtitles), you'll find that they have a lot of little funny moments inserted in the narrative, which is often used to set the mood. It's subtle but I've noticed it's there. Didn't mean it as "separate narrative" lol.

it's just that the boundaries of mindless action flicks are way wider here. Lots of people don't really care even if they show such scenes with no intention of being hilarious although it's changing and you'll only see this stuff in action comedies nowadays.

Most mindfuck scene from bollywood for me was when protagonist is left with one bullet and he is facing two bad guys.. he fires the gun and immediately throws a knife towards the flying bullet. Knife somehow bisects the flying bullet, forces the change in trajectory of the two pieces to a V at 45 deg and kill both bad guys with a headshot. Yes a headshot.

Highside *

High side vs low side crash. High side and there's a chance it stops sliding abruptly and catapults you into hell. Low side and you slide while essentially standing on the bike and maybe get away with leg injuries.

He was trying to. Looks like he was trying to get in position to pop back up at the transition from tarmac to grass.

My_Password_Is_____

3 days ago

I don't watch Moto GP, so I'm no expert, but I don't think you're popping a bike back up when you lay it down like that. I think he was just slowly falling and that was where he put his leg because otherwise he was basically gonna be sitting on the ground and take that pavement-to-grass transition to the ass and probably risk tearing some stuff in his leg if it was still straightened out when he hit it. You can actually see his left hand that he's supporting himself with get knocked off by a bump right before he slides down like that.

jack2012fb

Also cutting across the grass like that is probably not legal, even if he was able to get back up.

Cutting across the grass isn't legal if you gain an advantage from it - if your bike is on its side, you aren't going to be getting an advantage so it's fine

Iron_Man_Dies

What's the purpose of that level of specificity to the rule? Is it actually for situations like this where someone falls and skids on their bike or is it for like in case you need to go on the grass to avoid an accident or something?

fatpad00
5
3 days ago

Yup. Happens occasionally. Maybe the rear tire slips a little too much on a corner and to recover you have to stand the bike up and you run wide into the grass. As long as you safely reenter the track, there is no penalty

Iron_Man_Dies
3
3 days ago

Gotcha, so you're allowed to take an advantage relative to an accident or other mishap, but not allowed to use it to take any advantage relative to a normal progression of the race.

fatpad00
1
3 days ago

Right. As long as you position after reentering the track is not better than before you left the track, you should not be penalize

coombeseh
1
3 days ago

The idea in any motorsport is for you to take the fastest line available to you within the confines of the track. You can't gain an advantage by leaving the track, but there's no reason to penalise you if you didn't gain anything from it. The rules are written this way to allow you to push as hard as you can, and not be penalised for a mistake any more than the loss in time that inherently occurs.

There are of course motorsports where this isn't relevant - any kind of oval racing has no need for it, because there's never any advatage to be gained by cutting a corner and you can't go round the outside as there's a wall in the way. But for things like Moto GP and F1, there's a chance that cutting a corner could save you distance and time, so they are often covered in grass or gravel as an extra deterrent to you leaving the track.

I_Could_Be_Higher

You're right about not getting it back up in that position, but there are times where the bike understeers and the rider has a crazy recovery, I will look for other examples because there is one where his speed reduces very quickly, but this is a clip I found of Marc Marquez almost losing his front tire for at least 1 second

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IAIultpG8Y

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CO4Bl4I7goY

Added one more, he basically stops turning due to the wheel losing contact, then recovers. Incredible rider, Marc

forbes52

I’m confused. What happened in that first clip?

I_Could_Be_Higher
3
3 days ago

Yep Three Eyed Ramen explained it well, in the first clip at 0:30 is a good view, you can see that the front wheel just keeps sliding as he thinks that he has recovererd 2 or 3 times.

This clip was caused due to some fluid being on the track, but it usually looks about like this when you lowside, people lose it really quick but Marc Marquez manages to recover from quite a few where most might not. https://youtu.be/wEcZMvoD3ms?t=44

If you want to see more search for Highside or Lowside crash videos. In the clip OP posted, the rider actually high sides but manages to stay on/behind the bike. In most situations highside crashes can be extremely brutal as it usually sends the rider flying from the momentum when the bike flips over.

svacct2

_-No0ne-_

He was saved by already being off/behind the bike when the "flip" happened. Lucky, and smart of him to get back behind the bike instead of trying to ride out the slide.

Three-Eyed-Ramen

Front wheel lost grip. At the part where he drifts over the outside of the turn he should've ideally been pulling tight to the inside. He overcooked it and the front lost grip, meaning he carried his forward momentum and ended up on the gravel.

Jesus - that so nearly went from a lowside to a highside. Scary shit. I wonder if he intended for it to come back up or the tires caught and he just managed to stick it before he went over the top. You'd think he'd just stay lowside and ride it out, but the fuck do I know? I am a mere mortal.

Regardless, I don't know how these motorbikes are able to drag the weight of those massive balls around the track.

Klathmon

The dude is just fucking crazy and most of his insane moves seem to work out for him. In fact his crew had to somewhat infamously redesign his elbow pucks because he kept using his elbows to "push" himself back upright a lot more than other riders.

Marquez is either the luckiest man alive, or he's made some kind of unholy deal with the devil.

Having watched him race for a few years, i'm convinced it's the latter.

HighPriestofShiloh

I think he went for a save in the middle there. It honestly looks like he was going for it. No just terrified for his life, actually thinking he is the main character in an anime. Which he obviously is he is just in the first episode when his rival wins. He will recover the bike next time.

Every now and then you can catch really skilled riders intentionally hanging onto the bars as the bike slides (normally you'd want to get the fuck away from the bike because it can easily hurt you, whereas sliding is absolutely casual as fuck, from personal experience) because they want to rip that bike up and get rolling again once they come to rest. The shitty thing is that these bikes don't have starters, so they almost always have to get the cornerworkers to push them and then dump the clutch to kick-start it. But still, someone like Marquez could salvage points in a race easily if they can get the bike back rolling quickly enough

Gyroscopic balls?

I know it sounds like bullshit

But this is basically my recollection of losing my front end into a right hand corner as it started raining.

I wasn't wearing any Protection other than my helmet.

If previously felt the pain of road fresh skin shaves and definitely didn't want to do it again.

In my memory I basically mounted the side of the bike after realising it's too late to come out of this and accepted the fate of the sinking ship.

It was surprisingly peaceful for about 2 or 3 seconds maximum.

Then we (my ninjette and I ) made our way into a metal Barrier. My bike went under and I got to go over.

Without even thinking I'm back up and trying to yank the bike from its wedged rest stop and I feel a thumping on my shoulder and start to worry but continue on then all of a sudden I see hands waving in my face.

Unbelievably I'd completely ignored someone who witnessed and stopped to check on and help me, I had nothing but music blaring in my ears and a massive adrenaline rush keeping the ouchies from my side that kissed the barricade.

Button of my jeans MIA... Topped the right knee area ever so slightly in the slide. No skin just denim.

My hand was pretty Rashed from the gravel over the barrier as I plowed over.

Sore right rib, shoulder and neck were tight for a day or 2. Initially once I got to my GFS and sat down it became slightly painful to inhale and exhale.

At the time I was just thinking about trying to save any form of relationship and didn't want to look as if this was an emotional manipulation ploy or something childish.

I think it was a few days max of minor discomfort.

I believe I was doing 60 to 65kmh when I initially lost feeling during a front wheel slide mid corner, trying to accelerate out obviously didn't slow me down much but I am guessing the slide brought speed of impact way down.

Not hard to believe just like OP. You'll be going at the same speed as your bike. It's all down to how you fall. Direction and speed you have already. Then it's all down to instincts and trying get as lucky as possible. Don't want a foot getting caught in the bike for example.

Sounds fun. I bike in NYC, and I see a fair amount of spills. I always stop for a second just to remind people to take a break, sit on the curb for five minutes, drink some water, and let the adrenaline wear off. The natural impulse is just to jump back on and keep going, regardless of any broken bones. Adrenaline is a hell of a drug.

You'd have to look them up by track to get a good sense of averages, since each course will vary a lot.

It’s often not until you see slow motion of professional sports people that you realise how much of a class above they are from even the best amateurs.

A friend of mine was a pro kayaker for a while, and he made a lot of the “famous” kayaking videos. I’ll always remember seeing his composure in slow motion as he ran a huge waterfall.

You could see him making minute adjustments to his paddle, body, boat, all whilst falling and being surrounded by terrifying white water. Absolute composure. Awesome to watch.

SlidePanda

Leather mostly.

  • High end suits will be Kangaroo leather (lighter, more flexible, but more costly).
  • Schoeller keprotec - an stretch material with a decent amount of aramid. Used in areas least likely to touch during a slide, like the inside of arms, crotch, inside of legs etc.
  • Some plastics and/or metals. Knees and elbows have replaceable slider pucks. But there's also stuff over the shoulders and other points.
  • A few more materials for stuff like trim, lining etc.

Within the suit there's an array of stuff to absorb/mitigate impacts. Even airbag systems now.

He's probably wearing a made to measure version of this: http://pro1.rs-taichi.com/product/NXL107.html

It's definitely and RS-TaiChi made suit
