That's not the crash as far as I know. He crashed in the Senior TT if I recall and it was on the 1000rr w/ the cool retro paint job. Bike hit a stone wall and burst into flames.

True, but most people I hear of running a 190/55 on a 600 are using OEM rims. I know the thread was about a 5.75 rim. I sort of de-railed it. :D

Yeah, I mostly posted it because not a lot of guys are running the RC8 and it's cool to see it in a competitive light and how it's doing. I know it's not WSBK, but it's still impressive.:twocents
