Wet pavement, lifting an inside rear tire, that says a lot about good traction.

LOL, yeah... he must have changed the way he posts them to FB cause they used to be more reasonably sized when direct linked.

That blue suzuki picture from RI

Yes it is at max lean angle for the bike..

But.. he really hasn't moved his body much to the inside to offset that so he could be at that same speed, same place in the turn without as much lean if he did..

But then again he wouldn't be sparking hard parts for the camera

The thing that most bothers me is that if you mark the line his tires are on compared to the curve of the center line at that point, he is already starting to move to the outside of the lane while there is still a lot more curve left and he ain't go no more turning ability.

Hope it turned out well.

Yeah... a bit extreme for body position (oh to be young and limber enough to do that whether needed or not) but the bike is solid in lean with plenty to spare, good lane position, and safe line for exit and into next turn. I had rather be a passenger there than on the suzuki.

Yep, that is an extreme example of body english, but even in a moderate body position it _feels_ like that. You're hanging waayy off the bike towards the pavement and the bike seems way up there in near-verticalville.

I gave up riding like that years ago, tho I do like to hang way off a bit sometimes when going onto a decreasing-radius freeway onramp.

Feelin' spunky but I know the ramp...
