Great video of a guy that knows what he's doing and what can be done.
It still cringe hearing all the scraping though.

Yes, would love to see some close up pics of the bits which were making all that noise.

It's the engine guards. They're the first things to hit.

I'm surprised there weren't any sparks flying.

You'd probably see them if it was dark.

Interesting and impressive but I like to leave that to the pro's... Seen it done in person and I'd rather leave the scratches for someone else's bike...

On my 1500 my left foot drags thr ground when I get that far over. I have to lift my foot off the shifter which he doesn't seem to be doing. Maybe the difference between the 1500 and 1800 or I have big feet

I watched for that (I sometimes do the same thing) and did see him lift off a couple of times.

Watch his head. It's a good example of looking where you want the bike to go

When I bought my '08 GW, I looked for an advanced riding course and found Roadcraft Motorcycle Academy in Ricmond, BC. The selling point for me was that one of the head instructors, Steve McKenna, has been a Top Gun single and two-up rider at the GW rendezvous.

Here are a couple of videos of him doing the competitions.
