Pirelli carcass flex

I remember seeing a picture of @PainfullySlo in a turn and you could see the amount the rear tire was flexing.

This is a whole new level of flex! lol...I guess this is what it looks like when a VERY fast guy rides a 220-230 hp bike with the same tires on



For those that don't know, this is Shakey Byrne on the Be Wiser Ducati BSB bike...guessing at Brands Hatch from last weekend.

Nope! Not at all. This is what 100-105 lb-ft of torque does to that tire when it's leaned over to the edge.

Look at the amount of surface area of rubber on the tarmac. That my friends is traction. I just wonder how long it can last.

So...you are saying that I am not fast? :-p

And that is totally legit. I assume this is the pic SBK was talking about, me on a 'tiny' 130hp/51lb. ft. middleweight bike and not even at the edge of the tire yet in this pic.



Same corner, almost to max lean. It doesn't look anywhere near as dramatic from the back.





You are looking at the reason why Pirelli has the best grip available out of any tire manufacturer at the moment although the new Dunlop tire they are testing in MA has the potential to sake things up since they basically copied the Pirelli carcass and added their own twist to it. I am actually really excited to try those.
