    Pretty spectacular!

    Ok- how many of you are that unconsciously competent as riders?

    Or- how many of you think the R will make you so?

    Hey- we all gotta dream, don't we? :lol3 :lol3 :lol3

    Yehaw! I love that bit towards the middle of him flying up that sandstoney looking uphill. Smooth.

    And how do you whip it around like he does at the top. I feel as if I try that on my 950S I going to rip my lower back to shreds.

    Great clip. If that doesn't sell some bikes, nothing will.

    Hey all!

    From the video: Is it me or should that bike be taking the rear hits a little better than shown? Seems to be kicking like a log wagon.

    It's nice how he lifts the wheel before going over water. That's one of the tricks I've never masterd on the 950. All I get is wheel spin so I guess I need to be a little more gentle while applying the power.

    Funny - even as a 16-year old on an underpowered Kawasaki 125, getting the front wheel off the ground was never a problem. That was 25+ years ago though. I used to purposely spray both sides of the highway from a puddle just off the highway back in the day. :evil

    Trust me 25 years ago many of us could do fantastic things.

    Today we just make do.


    To be honest I am afraid to pop a wheelie. All I remember from 25 years ago is bouncing my ass off the ground.

    :lol3 Yep. I used to wheelie past the hospital's parking lot going from 1st gear all the way through 4th on a good day. I also worked there and the nurses would really chew me out about the way I rode.

    Of course, when it was 30 degrees out, no one ever offered me a ride home. I'd have to stop every few miles and unthaw my hands. Dem were the days.
