That's kinda what I was thinking too. He looks scared on that thing, I couldn't imagine him on a real bike.

That was a pretty cool vid. Love the rig. Would love to use one... too bad it's not a little closer to Houston.

They had to get someone that wasn't seasoned on a bike so he could make his constructive criticism. I agree he looked a bit nervous.
On a different note, it's cool for people who don't ride or are new to it to see the mechanics of how to initiate a turn. It's ridiculous how many people who don't ride won't believe you if you tell them that on a motorcycle you have to turn the bars to the right in order to initiate a left turn Again, things your muscles learn from experience and not really thought of so much. I wanted to see him brake and turn

Most seasoned riders would be surprised how many things they do wrong every single time they ride. A couple times at the CSS will do wonders no matter how good you think you are.

Everyone is making fun of the kid, but I see the same thing all the time on the streets. Locked elbows, back arched, feet hanging on the pegs.

It's amazing how much you can learn at a track day, or reading or watching youtube vids or riding with someone that will take the time to teach some pointers.

Tried some of those techniques on the cruiser. Wow, I never realized how much I was supporting myself with the handle bars. Corners are way easier, but I can't take them as fast. I think that is more the difference in grips and center of gravity on the cruiser opposed with a sport bike. If I lean too far into the center of the curve then my feet will come off of the pegs.

I need a sportbike. "Hey, boss I need a raise." "Maybe if you stayed off that motorcycle site and got more work done." Sigh...

We had a guy on a full dresser Harley come out to the streets of willow one time. He had taken the school about 12 times. In the tight stuff in the back, he was scraping pegs, and passing sport bikes with the radio blaring. It was quite impressive.

You can take the corners faster, you just have to turn the bike quicker, which uses less lean angle, as well as picking the bike up coming out of the corner which puts you back on the meat of the tire and makes it way more comfortable to get back to the throttle. Quick Turn and Pick-Up drill are 2 of the techniques they teach at the superbike school, as well as many others.
