As a new street rider, I found this to be very informative. Thanks for sharing. I don't, however, plan on going much faster than 65/100 on my XT225 (or any motorcycle, for that matter).

Interesting. Good thing they've come a long way with understanding the geometry and how/why it happens. Laying forward eliminates the wobble because it puts more weight on the front tire. That was the counter-intuitive thing they told us during track days, if the bike starts to head shake, get further up on the front.

Maybe, if I was half a century younger, I'd go and *watch* that sort of insanity first hand! Today, watching on the big screen is about my speed, and it hurts even at that!!..

I have tremendous respect for the course workers who jump down with a rope to help rescue people. I wonder how many bikes vs riders were able to make multiple runs? Tremendous opportunities for damage to each.

It was tough to judge, watching the video, just how STEEP the final rocky part of that climb was. Watching riders and bikes tumble end over end downhill, often in potentially bone crunching mash-ups, gives a better idea of the radical degree of incline involved. No thanks, not for me!..
