This is insane. About as real of a way to show non-riders what it's like at speed, even when those people observe, "Wow, that guy is really smooth."
Tell me this ain't how it really is in the driver's seat.

I guess the gyroscopic forces of spinning wheels aren't ALWAYS a detriment, huh... :shock:

The takeaway? There is a critical speed above which motocycles become curb-proof.

Good thing he had no time to react to that. The slo-mo was like...faaaack! :o
The slight throttle bobble was prolly just his hand getting thrown around. :nuts:

Another curb incident...can't give props to the copyright, it's illegible, delete if necessary. Hutchy runs low on fuel throwin' him off-line, kinda like a false neutral?
