    Good technique, ride right, save your life. Late apexing keeps you on the right side of the road on exit. Wish everybody rode this way. Or maybe he's just target fixated... :D

    Amen, I don't see a late apex, just telephoto depth compression, in fact, he hasn't apexed at all, late turn in, maybe.. He is right about where he should be. I wonder how the HD drivers I have seen on this thread manage not to crash when they are all up on the inside line 1/2 mile before the apex. The rider pictured will probably clip the line a little past the 1/2 way point around the turn, again, good technique as he retains the option to stay wide if something comes unannounced into his path.

    I think he 's watching the 3 hogs coming the other direction to see how far over the line on his side they get before he starts his turn. :lol3

    That looks like more money than I would be willing to put into a Ninja 500! (And I own one.)

    If he was any further in the oncoming lane he'd be on the shoulder.
