I figure a rider on a bike with better lean angle than a Wing would be able to stay more planted in the seat while going faster/just as fast in the turns.
The whole purpose of moving around/hanging off on a bike is to move the weight outward and allow the bike to be more upright and keep a better contact patch with the road.

really you folks got nothing better to do than talk about a washed up 50 yr old on a wing with a car tire,hahahahahaha

I don't want to ruin this thread with facts but what the heck

1-im 3 min slower than the fastest sport bikes there,9.7 miles,,,thats like forever

2-the guy on the ducati was faster but was getting a video done at the time so that's why he did not leave me

3-the car tire"on a wing" has a larger contact patch"ran both thru water in a corner and measured",can lay down more throttle coming out of the turns with out spinning like my bike tires did,and my runs are timed and are just a tic faster with a car tire
in the rain there is way way more grip!!

4-i ride to have fun,be with friends,share a common interest some of you should try it!!!!

things that are NOT true
I am not the fastest time on the dragon
when I videoed I never said if you leave me the video is free,lol
I did not die in a bad wreck at the dragon"yes ive heard that one,lol

Great post! Thank you!
One thing you didn't settle is what kind of oil do you use in your wing.
