No, it's not a Gold Wing, but the rider sure knows how to enjoy his new BMW K1600LT. Turn you speakers on and listen for the sweet sound of controlled scrapping. Notice how relaxed this guy is on the controls. He's not even covering the front brake or clutch half the time because he's controlling the bike with throttle and steering. I'd love to see a matching Gold Wing video. If you've got a similar Wing video, post it on YouTube then share it here.

No video, but it looks similar to what one could do after practicing (at length) DJ's "idle in 3rd gear" exercise. By the way, when it was first suggested, I thought it was the dumbest idea I had ever heard. But having seen video of DJ, I figured it was worth a try.

I do it often, and it helps a lot in short situations like this.
