He either failed at trailbraking or just leaned it off the tires, his form was so bad it was hard to tell, but he definitely tucked the front.

It's a wonder it took that long for him to wreck. ...

Yikes, that guy's feet were sticking out sooo far (and wearing sneakers) it's amazing he didn't break all his toes in the first couple of turns.

This is basically what I meant in relation to my previous post about bad form. The guy is leaning the opposite way, yet sparks are flying, when what he could keep the bike more upright and lean himself off and not scrape parts. But I guess its cool when you're down at the bar to tell your buddies "I was going so fast that sparks were flying"

A guy at work is always bragging the he is always scrapping floor boards on his Harley because he rides so fast. One day I went on a ride with him and found out why his boards always scrap the bike leans and he doesn't.

I had no idea that "The Dragon" was banked like Daytona, and scraping the boards no less!
