Wow, that's no joke...he may not be dressed properly but he's showing that the R1200R handling is pretty solid. Good for him. You'd probably have to lean over pretty far before the cylinder heads touch the ground I guess.

He says he recently lost some weight and his leathers don't fit him anymore. Whatever the case may be, he sure is showing that the R1200R is a nice handling machine. Though I think I would have liked to hear more of the engine in the video.

just rode palomar mountain road a few days ago actually, amazing road. as for this guy and his riding style, i see this all the time, butt moves over but torso stays parrallel with the bike, never understood that, if you're gonna get your butt over, your body and head should follow. and if you're that close to the ground, get some knee pucks or lean your body more so the bike does not have to lean as much. he's close but needs some form help, just my 2 cents. nice to see the r getting some good work, too many people just ride it like a cruiser and it has performance capability, for sure
