    This looks familiar.....

    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    There's a clip that's floating around here somewhere of a dude taking a similar (same?) corner on a vintage racer and at the bottom of the hill his front wheel liberates itself from the bike and the rider has help dismounting under some velocity. Looks like the bike was digitally removed......

    Ouch...that's ugly.

    It's obviously the clip that's been doctored but not the one I was thinking of. I wish I could find it, rider coming down the hill, gets to the bottom and the front wheel comes off, bike jumps up in the air and a smallish yard sale occurs. YOu could just see the rider looking down at his front end as he comes down the hill....he knew something was wrong.
