    who has the bigger plums?

    Bikers.
    Even the superbike riders are completely mental and they don't have as much power as the MotoGP machines.
    It happens a lot that a rider breaks a foot or hand and still races.
    Schumacher has still not recovered from his fall a couple of months back. I wonder if he might be sensible enough to call it a day with the bikes.

    The height of madness is still the Isle of Man though.

    I found this clip a while back from a documentary on Barry Sheene. I was speechless when I saw the crash at the time and still have problems watching it.
    He said he moved to Australia because of the pain he got from all the metal in his body in the English climate, and he always set off metal detectors.
    His comments sum up the way bikers are.
    Such a huge huge loss for motorsport and so ironic that he died of cancer rather than a crash:
