Yes the GP and Q Shift are pretty cool to focus on.
But, what catches my eye is the amount of flex you see in the rearsets, flex at the collector pipe, and the shadows of Ben's 1000 as he leans and uprights the bike. The least amount of lift of the front and the throttle control Ben uses feeding the bike. Good vid.

Would be nice to see a camera at the controls with sound.

The camera is mounted to the swingarm. I think what you are seeing is not the rearsets/exhaust/etc flexing, is the POV changing as the suspension travels.

I think most of what appears to be the rearsets flexing is caused by the camera being mounted on the swingarm. As the swinger moves it looks like the rearset is bending.

Sorry fellows, I was thinking that but I guess I did not write it out in my post. Yes, where else would the camera be mounted.
My thought was the movement of the rear and the balance the bike was set up as (the least amount the front was off the ground when Ben pulled the triger wide open). Maybe I should have not used the word Flex. I know rear sets do not move or they better not be doing that.

Later TJ.
