He should try that beemer in the background. It looks like it'll hold that angle without all those hands holding it up.

LOL, That baby leans way over on the side stand. We let people hold the bike because we run it from straight to leaned over and back to straight again, running them through the steps. Works pretty good. AKA as the "Zero MPH Turn"

Looks like he has got what it takes to be an AHRMA contender. Ever watch those guys on the tank shifters wind up the frames and sproing them out of the corners? As the famous racer (Mulder? Nixon?) said, "It's more fun riding a slow bike fast..."

As I understand it, the reason for being able to let go of the bars while hanging off in the demo is to prove to oneself that there is no leverage being applied to the bars other than steering leverage. Hanging off should not interfere nor impact steering control. I am told that many riders use the bars for upper body support while hanging off. This can, and often does, lead to unknown poor and undesirable steering inputs. Thus, these riders tend to shy away from hanging off because the bike does not go where the rider intends it to go and the feedback from the bike is unacceptable to the rider.

This kind of knee sliding just looks wrong IMO, the leg is almost 90 degrees out to make sure the knee is close to the ground even if the bike is still pretty much upright. In this picture the bike makes up for it (couldn't lean it more even if he tried) but when I see this positioning on a modern supersport it looks funny.

Great pictures in this thread!
Look at the picture of Doohan, he almost scrapes his arse before the knee touches the ground
