That guy is obviously capable of riding way beyond the limits of that bike, judging by how far he was wanting to lean verses how far that bike was able to go. Time for a Triumph, and some actual gear. If you turn your volume all the way up at the very end of the video, when they pan in close at the motor to show the damage, they show the oil dripping from the case and he says, oh, that was already like that.
Watching these videos showing people showing off in front of cameras has heightened my awareness of not allowing photographers to distract me when cornering on the motorcycle.
Yesterday, I took part in the Southern California Norton Owners' Club's annual all-Brit ride held at the Hanson Dam Recreation Area north of Los Angeles. Hundreds of bikes participated. On a twisty part of the ride on Little Tujunga Canyon Road, at the tightest corner, a photographer had set up his camera where he waved at the riders as they approached him. I thought of this thread and the one about the Harley on the Dragon and consciously avoided looking at him and concentrated on the road and the curve.
These videos have been instructive reminders to me to avoid being distracted and to keep my concentration where it belongs.
