But it gives you much more street credit when at the local rest stop! "OMG, He's got his bodywork grounded off, he's a super badass!"

Doesnt give much room for error when you're already hitting the bodywork, what if theres suddenly something in the way, maybe an animal or dirt or something you didnt see and you have to decrease your turning radius, you cant, because you're already at the max and tilting more will just lever the bikes tires off the ground.

Little hint...when you see a laughing smiley, there is a fair chance that the statement immediately previous to the smiley was a joke.

If you have to ask perhaps the answer will evade you.

Target fixation and not leaning enough. Trust your tires!

Fantastic!

I saw this pic and thought, "I know that road!" I used to run this all the time.

Oregon has such great riding. There's a lot of excellent rides around Alsea and backwoods roads to the coast, too, that must rival the much talked about "Dragon". It's as if the east coast has but one really good, overcrowded, motorcycle run.

Great Video and nice form

Actually, the east coast has a lot of really great twisty roads. Most motorcycle riders have little or no sense of adventure and are content to just follow the herd and ride the well known, main roads. I have sometimes gone riding for a week in the Smokies and not seen another motorcycle on the lesser known roads, many of which have tighter curves than Deals Gap. Also, most of the other roads do not have photographers on them documenting everything that happens.
