Cool Must be the fastest ZX14 i have seen!

I was going through some of our smr videos and found this one..... I just cant believe how good this guy rides the big monster, almost 560 pounds and he rides it like a little scooter going faster than most sport bikes out there. Sometimes i just fall back and watch him make sparks on his ZX14!

Admittedly I skipped through a couple of parts because I was looking for turns - but I never saw any. Should I go back and watch the whole thing or was that about it?

There are only 4 turns in the first section of the ride, enough to see how well a big sport touring bike handles the turns!

Can't imagine why all of the locals hate the bikes so much. Last time I checked, ZX14s had a little bit of motor to them. They're heavier than a full-on sportbike, but they'll still turn. As long as you don't have to flick it back and forth constantly, a big bike handles just fine at speed.

That vid makes me wonder how long before some truck pulls out, a dog runs across, a rock pile appears... Didn't look like there was any room for reaction or room for error if something unexpected happened. Bad enough on the racetrack when someone bins it in front of you, but lots more to go wrong there. Turns fatal fast.

I have never ridden one but i dont think i would be able to ride like that if i was the one riding those turns.

There are no houses on either side of the road and no intersections so the only danger is another vehicle running wide on the turn and coming to your lane.

Well, maybe try one out if you get a chance and this vid wouldn't be so impressive.

Those are long, lazy curves that a bike like a busa or 14 are made for. They're incredibly stable at speed and will absolutely eat that up without effort.

I don't know what vid you were watching but I saw driveways, crossroads, bridge railings and bicycles. Seems like plenty of danger to me.
I didn't see an amazing demonstration of skill, I saw a guy that was willing to twist the throttle harder than he should on public roads.
I know I should trust Darwin's Law but sometimes it takes too long.

I wish I could go around corners like this guy....jus kidding.

I remember when I 1st got into riding we (bunch of west side folks) used to run this road and then up to RR all the time. I used to think it was a great "twisty" road......then I found the track. The end.
