    I was thinking the same thing. I get that not everyone deals with shit the same way, but I know my first move (instinct) would have been to get off my bike and make sure my kid was not hurt or broken.

    Glad it seemed to have worked out and kudos to the boy for getting back on and riding it home. What a trooper!

    I had a 850 commando in '72, never experienced any of that, it was like on rails. The xs 650 I had before the Norton, used to get in to a weave of a sort when going around fast sweepers, it was like it had a hinge in the middle, it was steady enough when going straight though. Those days it was a norm to sit on 90mph, cops being fairly scarce.

    Every time I see a video like this it chips away a little bit more at my admiration for MotoGP riders. These real-road racers are the bravest--and craziest--bastards on two wheels. The occasional padding in front of trees and stone walls is hilarious. They might as well line the course with bayonets.

    The fact that there remain places on earth where you can still do this kind of shit gives me hope for humanity.

    Imagine that... a flattened profile rear tire makes the bike handle worse.

    I have had my 73 Z1 to 80-90 mph many times, never experienced weave or wobble, I must be heavy enough!!:clap

    North Korea is a depressing county and it totally contrasts South Korea. Thanks for the video.

    That video sure paints a different picture of Korea than what is typically in evidence in the U.S. media. I expected a barren land with emaciated lost souls but....
