Last I knew he had a deal that if you could lose him while he was shooting your video, the video is free. Don't think he's ever had to give one away even to sport bikers.

Anyone remember the Honda commercial with Nicky Hayden riding the Goldwing on track when the twin spar alum frame version was released? Can't find the video though. Too bad, it was cool.

While not exactly a 'fail', I would deduct a point from the pistol packers for 'straight arms (hah, I crack myself up) in a corner'. It is considered 'good form' to have some bend in the elbows while cornering. Those that are of a mind can give the points back for 'style'.

The trike that is over the DY and is supposedly a mirror image does not have the script reversed. Thus, I conclude big fail on the riding line. BUT, decent cred for lifting a wheel. Always nice to see a trike going for it.

It is a major update when compared to the whip.

I would certainly think that he failed to have any consideration of other road users, land owners, and the general public by running those pipes.

Between that and the firing range he's probably half deaf anyway so why would he care?


It's a bit unusual to see a three-patch vest and full-face helmet on the same person.

That does not appear to be 1% "three patch" colors, to me.

d00d is probably a cop.

"same boots?! "

Doubt it, undercut heel on the lower pic, more of a walking heel on the upper one. :ear

They may well be.

Holsters look the same.

With all the "lest they be forgotten" and "all who have served" stuff on those bikes, they're probably together.

They're probably military, or cops, or military cops.

The dude on the camera bike earns a "fail." The camera bike rider turns in far too early and ends up going wide in the majority of turn exits. I also think the camera bike rider doesn't yet have a good feel for the front tire's traction (or the bike isn't set up well). There's no way the camera bike rider could keep up given his demonstrated skills.

OTH, Yellow Wolf stays wide until he decisively banks the bike to its maximum lean angle at his delayed turn point, trail brakes until about 1/3 corner, kisses a late apex and accelerates his bike smoothly from the turn.

Yellow Wolf may be riding closer to the bike's maximum than many here may chose, but the guy knows what he's doing. He's a good enough rider that I think he knows the risks.

I hope he provides more vids and knows when the following rider is performing above his pay grade so that Yellow Wolf slows down when necessary. The carrot may not twist the throttle, but he is responsible for enticement.

It's a good video for that rider to look at now and again at the end of the summer if he gets plenty of time on that road. Hopefully he'll see improvement in line choice and smoothness.

Passenger's not the only one. Rider has inside elbow locked.
