I remember someone was saying they couldn't do the DMV test on a supersport here's one on a hypersport. I've ridden a Hayabusa before and its not that hard a bike to ride at speed but on a gymkhana course that'd be a challenge because of the weight!

That’s a long course!

Newish riders that watch this, keep your focus on his head (and ergo, eyes), he is eyes/head UP and looking where he wants to go, not down right in front.

Also that is some beautiful clutch control I might add it looks so smooth.

Also around 1:05 it looks like he does a dab but as a last ditch effort to keep the bike from falling over and to get maximum counterweighting you can take your inner foot off of the footpeg kind of like flat trackers do when they are drifting.

I didn't see his hand on clutch at all. I'll have to rewatch a full screen but most times he doesn't even touch it.

Its not so much the weight as it is the length, right? It's not like he's holding it up. Perhaps it affects the strength needed to turn the front wheel, but the bike is standing itself up, right?

I'm the first to admit I'm "less comfortable" at "speeds" like this, and these tight turns. But just how much of that is psychological (in terms of perceiving the weight) than the actual physics involved.

If someone could do this well on a light bike, is it expected that they'd do poorly on a heavy one, or is the skill set more the same than not?

I wonder what makes them decide what type bike to use? I've seen riders on 2fiddys, 600s and now a busa. Is there a tier type system where they start on a smaller cc bike and move up to a bigger cc level, do they just enter at any level according to bike size, or just one level for all type bikes? Nice!
