No obvious major fail, although:
  1. Brakes are on - but could be trail-braking
  2. Could be leaned more in relation to bike - but nothing is close to scraping so it's not necessary
  3. Ideally would have balls of feet on pegs and arms not quite so straight (hard to tell if left elbow is locked but if it is, it shouldn't be)
  4. Looks like apex was a bit early - but with perspective of shot and not knowing the previous corner, it's hard to say for sure
Major reverse-fail:
He's out riding and the rest of us are sitting at our keyboards

I think my tail lights are just that bright.


Just an old and slow rider trying to stay out of the way.

And that is people born in this country. Must be really tough for an immigrant to learn.

Not buying the pic that he liked enough to put in the video should count as a fail
