while watching that vid I couldn't help but think, that's pretty much how I feel when winding out the SR on back roads! :D Not that I'm anywhere near the rider he is, but I do know the feeling of pushing old (or vintage style) iron as hard as one can (or dares to anyway)! And I couldn't help but notice the way the bike bounces around when going into a corner hard, pretty much how any twin shock swing arm and tubular frame machines tends to do, my SR does that lots esp. when I hit a bump in a corner! Wee! With all the improvements in modern frames and suspension one can easily forget that rear end wiggle and flexing that once was just part and parcel of riding hard. Too bad he broke down so close to the end.
