Very very good, but I still feel the Randy Mamala save of years ago is more impressive.

I would say it is real as the gyro effect would keep the bike up. Now being able to run after it..........

Awesome!

Every street biker, dirt biker and road racer has experienced an "oh crap" moment. They usually respond the same way..."I can save it...I can save it" until they don't. NO GIVE UP...especially today with all the video equipment watching you and posting the results for posterity.

ya lots of ppl at the first sign of something going wrong just give up.... its quite amazing how much a motorcycle form factor wants to be running upright given its gyroscopic nature.

I know I'm a little late to the party here, but I'm pretty sure that one is fake. I think I heard it was from a commercial or something, but anyway, why would the 2 following riders criss-cross his path anyway?
