Yeah this guy is handling it, and I love that she just casually reaches out to the ground. Nicely done.

sw mn. is pretty flat and the roads tend to be straight. also the far north west. the rest of the state has lots of twisty roads. 10,000 lakes and they're not square! I'd personally rank mn. about seventh for the best riding in the lower 48 states.

I haven't ridden all of MN, but lots of MN riders come to WI to ride good roads. MN sucks donkey balls for decent roads with curves and elevation change from what I can find.
CA, NC, TN, WV, VA, WA, OR, MD, PA and WI all eat MN for roads.

Organ transplant delivery couriers should not drift in corners. Cooler contents will "slosh".

Sorry to go all "texty" again, but what's really impressive is that it's the throttle hand. If I tried that on my Vee, I think it would stand up and take me into the weeds.

I'm going to try it and see what effect engine braking has on my line.

Believe that is the passenger's hand, not the rider's hand.

Probably a brake slide more than a power drift. Right toe is tucked in tight like on the rear brake.
