Japanese Cornering Video

Recommended Posts

Physics are physics. The reason he's not leaning off is that you probably couldn't even find a Moto GP racer who can do what this guy is at these speeds with all the body shifting that would be required. He stays locked into the bike so he can pop it around. Incredible though.

Some of the techniques I can see:

- He is well locked on, hips are very stable.

- Upper body moves WITH the bike.

- He is very light on the bars.

- He pushes his upper body forward when accelerating, to prevent having to hold himself by the bars.

- He has one finger on the brake lever, one on the clutch, feathering, every transition is as smooth as.


Good example of how much lean angle is possible, when you do it right. Amazing stuff.
