That was a screw up not a tankslapper.
Yeah, but an easy screw up to make at that speed when your in the air two times in a second or so. One jump is ok (been there done that) but two jumps and your motocrossin~!~ :bowdown:

I remember that. Darren Lindsey at the Tandragee 150 (I think?). Might have been the Cookstown 100. Poor fella is dead now, killed in practice session for Killalane Road Races.

I had a couple tank slappers on my old FZR600. I was just lucky to have some room to get it back under control before having to turn. Definitely scary.
