I haven't been keeping up with MotoGP racing the last couple of years, but it looks like they have taken cornering to a new level. It's one thing to get your knee down at the racetrack. It's another thing to get your knee *and* elbow down! Check out the elbow pads that they wear now!

I think he's looking for quarters that have been dropped on the track...

I want to buy one like that but I still can't afford one.

Yeah, it's gotten pretty wild. Maximum lean angle, for at least some of the bikes, is reportedly 64 degrees!
