Take a close look at what has to be one of the most remarkable motorcycle saves and sport bike crash escapes on this 1991 Suzuki Katana at the NHRA Drag Bike Races from Fontana, California’s Auto Club Dragway – Speedway. On a motorcycle bought for just $700, Jay of Compton MC got a little too aggressive on the launch with the throttle and clutch , which resulted in an unbelievable , out-of-control Superman wheelie. Somehow this rider was able to recover from what the photo sequence indicates will be a certain accident. Instincts took over and Jay was fortunate to get a couple fingers on that clutch lever to calm down this 136 horsepower classic Suzuki street bike. Share this video with a friend who appreciates a good moto save. we are glad Jay said his prayers before this race. Jean Claude Van Damme would have been proud of this save! WOW!
