really? they're actually really booking along at about 1/2 way - dragging bags etc.. it's a good vid and they're faster than a lot of sportbike guys.

...perception is eveyrthing...some observations:

....what if we didn't have audio and didn't know what kinds of bikes were being ridden before 2:26?...if that was the case I think comments would be less dismissive

...what if the audio was that of an in-line-6?...4?...3?..parallel-twin?...DUC L-twin?...Rotax-twin?...BMW opposed-twin?...big-thumper?...if that were the case I think the comments would be more positive...

...so...at 2:26 a red HD StreetGlide comes into view as it passes the camera bike (obviously another big-windscreen touring bike at the 3:22 shadow) and widens the gap in front of the camera bike...looked like a fun ride with no harm, no foul....

...I think Hondas are horrendous crap...I think Honda riders are Harley-wannabes...I think Suzukis are slow as shit...I think Suzuki riders are even slower...I think Yamahas are for yo'mamas...I think Yamaha riders are whiners...I think Kawasakis are slow moving cows...I think Kawasaki riders are cows...I think Ducs are dumb...I think Duc riders are even dumber...I think all Euro-bikes are fag bikes ridden by fag bikerboys...

...sure we can always sat we are all entitled to our opinions, but if reading and comprehending this got your panties all twisted, I think you get the idea ...

...we are all riders...buy what you like, ride like you like...be good to each other out there on the road...I would like to think it benefits us to be more of us bikers than more of them cagers, yes?...

...anybody can ride a "fast" bike slow, but very few can ride a "slow" bike fast ...

the problem following the fast harley's is their POS bike limitations. many of the riders are fast but they hold us up scraping hard parts when our bikes can lean a whole bunch more.

I follow those guys up the tail of the dragon and such and they are fast but still hold us back scraping floor boards, luggage, I've even seen them scraping kick stands. the spark show these guys give is great though!

I thought for the first minute or so it was the same video of that gsxr1000 railing on the corners.When I saw the red bike I said, good for them! A couple of guys having fun and not riding over their heads.I didn't watch it all the way to the end so I can't comment on scraping parts.I'm getting old. Riding at a nice clip is more enjoyable to me then scaring the shit out of myself in "ludicrous" speed.Props to the riders in the clip.
