but I will stick with what I was saying /said,, he did not ,dose not have to hang off the bike like this to make this turn
others have said it looks to them as if he was just playing around,, maybe thats the case .. I dont know
That guy is just bloody huge.

His right leg isn't clamped in, so MOST of what you are seeing is a normal shift of upperboddy weight....AND if you look at where his feet are he has a fair amount of lean left before he grinds anything.

Looks like more or less text book cornering to me.

Speed discussion aside, if its sharp enough 30mph is more than enough to drag your knees.....don't hate.

Not really, when you are off the bike like that most of your weight is on your feet you can still tip the bike back and forth to alter the arc of curve.

I've never ridden "The Dragon", perhaps you are mistaking me for someone else?

Couple of squids slalomed through our antique bike club ride today on Hwy 94, even though it happened to be at one of the few places with a passing lane on the left. Poor form!

Thanks for the direct answer.


Squid out.

Not you. The "you" that is the squid. I work next to a college campus and live near a tech college. I see these guys every day(Well not now, the temp is below 70). Lots of pirates(Guy, on a Harley, wearing a bandana?) as well. You would think just about everyone has fallen down while running down the sidewalk. That should be enough to make you think about falling while going ten times as fast.

Leather doesn't spark, either...

The bike may be resting on his left leg at that point...

How did you get a spy photo of the first generation prototype of BMW's new "Proximity Sensing, De-moleculizer System" that will be optional on the 2013 waterboxer?

The second shot clearly shows the large, quiet mufflers, obviously devoid of lifesaving capability right when he needed it.

DISCLAMIMER: This intended to be a humorous post.
Guess that proves the argument for counter-steering then.

So what exactly is the problem?

The fact that he is hanging off the bike?

Bah, back to the carnage.



Nice of him to kick some gravel onto the road, adds to the challenge
If that was a Solstice it would be upside down.

Looks like leaves to me, not sparks. Still a "dooomas" for cutting the corner and throwing gravel into the road.
