Title: Gabe Palmer Moroso Crash
Post by: MightyDuc Racing on March 22, 2003, 04:51:22 pm
One of Gabe's many unlucky get-offs caught on tape.  I'm told his brake lever was hit by the bike he was racing with.  It's on my home page.

Reminds me of the Steve Rapp crash a couple years ago (at Road America I think)

What is up with the bike flopping around like a fish at the end of the crash.  It seems to defy physics.  Is it just me?

Looks like the tail section just caught the edge of the grass and dug in a bit and caused it to flop like that.  By the way, the bike was barely damaged in the crash.  He retired (at least for now) witha  baby on the way and is selling the bike.  I don't know too much about it other than it's a 600 and completely race ready.  If interested, let me know and I'll try to get more info for youor pass along his number.
