    This, from a guy who wrote a seventeen paragraph diatribe a few pages back in the thread. And managed to slip in the fact that he was going to host a Legends Conference (wtf is that, btw?) a few posts later. Mr Unassuming, Low Key, Never Blow My Own Horn.

    The firm grip on the brake. His cigarette smoke on first plane. The pad to support his knee as he waits for the photographer to find that right angle to "show" action.

    I can't believe you guys missed the aerodynamic basket/numberplate, his sprung leather seat and don't you know that in China the clutch is on the right and the brakes are on the left. :wink::wink:

    Anyone who writes a seventeen-paragraph diatribe most certainly gives a fuck.

    Out of context again bicycle boy.

    Diatribe was all about the folks who think that the amount of bikes or bullshit they can put in a sig file or post adds some sort of gravitas to their crap *and* the folks that fall for it.

    Guys like you lap it up like kittens to milk.

    No, he is on corner exit, standing the bike back up, he is still hung off so the bike is more verticle so he can be harder on the throttle. His knee was on the ground back at the apex. :deal :freaky

    o-j you need to be right. :lol3

    I'm an old slow guy and see many pass me, on the outside, in the twisties.
    Most are hanging-off like circus monkeys at maybe 5mph more than my cornering speed.
    I feel that it is just for show... an illusion of speed. Just like most loud pipes offer the illusion of power.

    BTW, #46 is known for NOT hanging off.
