The road is no place to race November 5, 2009 By Wes Siler Tweet “If I faced the same obstacles on the race track that you do on the road, I’d probably be dead.” — Mick Doohan > Send this article by email What is your name?

Simple, to-the-point, and insanely clever. Very, very well done. Thanks for the look. AceCafeClipOns I like Mick Doohan! Great spot… but I can’t avoid thinking that Doohan’s kinda-smile at the end of the clip (and maybe the whole clip itself) shows some of the crazy fun involved in motorcycling… “If I faced… reality, I’d probably be driving a car!” … Anyway; THE ROAD IS NO PLACE TO RACE… at least it is no place to race… all the time! THANK’S MICK! Paul That’s a nice video clip, but how does it help me keep me from getting hit by a frickin’ car?? sam hahahahaha oh man i must be tired i thought that was real for far too long CafeRacer1200 Well obviously none of those obstacle that were about to be hit were technically on the road. The message here is STAY on the road when you race. some guy CafeRacer – I am now near 40 and should not be laughing at that comment. However, I am laughing at that comment. http://www.bikeexif.com Chris Hunter It’s a great ad. In Australia, it’s being favourably compared to another motorcycle safety ad that has just come out, which is truly awful and seems to paint all riders in a bad light: http://mumbrella.com.au/safety-ad-treats-bikers-like-drinkers-and-drug-users-10745 jwinter That ad is great. Too bad if it aired in the U.S. almost nobody would know who the hell any of those people were or even that they don’t have phone booths at trackside. http://www.ducatinewstoday.com Mark Morrison Great ad!! lloydy I have just watched the above clip,and i have to say i cant belive there putting trees and benches on race tracks. If you look carefully one rider narrowly misses a bloke sat at what looks like a bus stop-one a race track??? W T F?
