i like how people sit there and wait for people to crash .i also like how the guy on the r6 has full leathers on with sneakers and you can watch his shoe fly over the bike

Yeah, seems to be quite the spectator sport.

So many guys think all they have to do to get the bike low is go fast in the corner and they pay no attention to rider positioning. I noticed a few of these videos show the person crashing is not sitting correctly on the bike. For the same reason one of my friends wiped out at a trackday. He was told what his mistake was and he didn't wipe out any more after that. And the videos where the rider isn't wearing all the gear they should be wearing are painful to watch. Thanks for posting this, I think it has some teaching value.

that's because they've been sprinkling some diesel there in order to get youtube hits.

Slow turns..no point to push it with a big sportbikes. You won't gain or lose much time either way. But if you crash..game over.

p.s. and they all have bad body position

In spite of the poor positioning of several of the riders, and a couple sudden weight shifts mid-turn, I do wonder if the many youtube comments about that corner going off-camber have merit. Better riders could either anticipate or absorb a change in traction at that spot, but emerging riders with more courage than skill might be falling prey to a sudden change in road physics.

Ya, their positioning is awful. Some of those comments are even worse though,

"there's no such thing as counter-steering, it's clearly the corner's fault. It was never designed to be driven on"
