I hope to skinny back to 170lbs. I bought and use my gym membership; it makes me feel better.

100lbs overweight is obese and just not healthy. It causes heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, peripheral artery disease, and high cholesterol, etc, etc, enough said.

Just because you favor self described "overweight, over rate, over priced, slow parade float, buy all the appropriate biker (pirate) gear, proper patches and trinkets" doesn't mean I also have to.

If you find solace in your choices, I'm glad it makes you happy. Remember, it doesn't mean everyone has to make the same choices.
Tongue firmly in cheak I guess does not always translate in a post, sorry, I meant it to funny Everything above is very true, my cardiologist said so and he is a Dr and knows about these things. I ride a R, not the aformentioned float. And as I begin my 5 decade, I admit to being a bit more linebacker than safety (shape wise), I most certainley do not have a Bar and Shield shaped posterior, one of my good friends on here would have told me, I think.... guys seriously, tell me it is not Bar and Shield shaped is it? Guys...?

Ah, mate, it is good to see that you did not drop the bar on quality. Otherwise we'd think you were'nt yourself!!

What he said

Despite his inappropriate equipment that bike could clearly negotiate that corner at that speed.
The rider held his body above the center-line of the bike until his leg was dragged under.
If he had climbed into the curve and ridden that big ol' floorboard he could have given up 5 degrees or more of lean angle.
Try it.
Shift your body off center while traveling straight. Notice your bike is now leaning a few degrees to compensate for the weight shift.
Likewise if you start by shifting your shoulders and that 20 pounds of useless fat (your head) down and in, roll your knee out to make room to lower that expensive beer gut and you'll come through just fine.
Of course that bike will be even more tricked out next time it rolls out and the riders chagrined smirk says it will be back up as soon as he strokes that check.

I agree with the critique that the rider could have very easily backed out a touch and saved himself a bunch of grief. Not so apparent in that video is the uphill grade in that corner when ridden that direction. It is fairly steep, and rolling off at any point in that corner will drop your speed fast.

Where he got off the corner tightens up a touch, and there is a whoopie in the pavement that has made more than one bike step out a bit if the rider stays in it hard at that point. If you stay in close to the center line, no problem. Get wide there and you might have a problem. This guy did.

Back to topic ... I see someone said wrong bike for the job, I say wrong luck/skill set. I have a friend who takes his Sabre and his RG on the Dragon with no issues ... cuz' he rides in his skill set. The first photo is Jet on his Sabre, the rest are Jet on his RG ... keeping your feet off the pavement is key. (JMHO)









PS I can Ride and Chew Gum ... But I only do so when riding w/o a helmet. It makes my jaw ache to do so with my full face on .

Bottom line: If the rider would have done everything right, he could have saved it.
That said: It's really hard to react calmly with precise inputs when the metal starts draggin and the turn starts to tighten.

Best dismount I've ever seen.

Vambo, the pic goes too far - UHG! No bike could haul that -

To address the thread title, I guess some have trouble "multi-tasking"
