Ok, you got me! I was seriously thinking someone was knee down on an S10! Before I clicked, my mind racing away...
"I wonder if my leathers still fit?"
"That's gotta be a long way down to get a knee puck scraping on an S10"
"Not with these old Metzler's, maybe with the Dunlops mounted up, they're more of a street looking tire.."
A few years ago, my V-Strom sprung an oil leak from the output shaft seal. Not huge, but enough to consistently drip onto the rear tire when riding. Unfortunately, I was a good bit away from home and on a tight timeline. Rode it about 1200km's home, dreading the slightest curve in the road, trying to keep the bike as upright as possible as in the video.
Made it safely, but not something I want to try again.
I had a lady rider in the Chapter once that absolutely could not lean her bike to corner. We tried and tried. I'm glad she never figured that move out, we would have all died of laughter.
Oh, and I have seen videos of a few Tenere over the years tearing it up on a Track Day.
Reminds me of following a group of older, obviously very affluent riders up the coast to Laguna Seca one year for the GP. They had Bimotas, higher end Ducatis, and MV Agustas. I don’t think any of their bikes were worth less than $30K. They were clad in $2000.00+ racing leathers. After watching them corner like that for a few miles we grew bored and blasted past them on our ST1100s, a Gold Wing and an early VR750F Interceptor.
