Unreal...many levels above my capabilities, or maybe I'll live to be an even older motorcyclist.

Café racing has always been insane. The Isle of Man is the pinnacle.
I tried it in my youth with a 750 K5, heavily modified. That wobble cresting a hill is...................well I wouldn't come close to it now.
I wised up and turned the 883 K5 into a chopper/custom and bought a Harley FX.
And lived to tell about it. :bow:

Thanks for sharing the clip.

Ok, now I can officially declare that I am chicken and I can't ride for *****.....

The first wobble would have me flying off the bike... and that would probably be the best thing... :)

I'll admit thats the way I used to ride up in the North Georgia mtns til I took it to the race track and did some trackdays. Since then I've given up sportbikes for the Wing. Only did for my wife. I really miss draggin a knee around the turns.

Don't get me wrong I really love my Wing! For the kind of riding its built for there's none better.

But, there was nothing like pulling a 3rd gear, 100 mph power wheelie on my ol Gixxer 1K. Unfortunately at 47 I guess I'm just to old for such hooliganism.;)
