AWESOME! AWESOME!

I'm not sure Mr Honda ever invisioned someone doing that with a Goldwing. But it's great to know that he built it so you could.

Makes me a little nervous about riding the Dragon if NUTS like them are doing that on public roads.:shock:

That was the first thing I thought too. I hate the idea of scraping the pegs or floorboards if it can be helped. Of course I don't have sudicidal tendencies either, so I wouldn't be ridingso fast along the curves like that on that type of bike.:(

When I was young, I scrapped the pegs off a couple of Kawasakis. Thank God I survived being young.

My son and I watched it together and I had to explain the noise. Then he asked me not to ride my bike like that because he wants to keep the old man around for awhile.
I admire their riding skill but I thought the point of a Goldwing is to see some of the things that went blurring by.

Oh! To be young again!

ROTFLMAO!!!

I wonder how many of you guys watching this were tilting your head and leaning in your chair as you watched like I was!

After riding my 'Wing as much as I do, when I first get into a cage I find myself trying to "lean" into corners and curves, then laugh at myself once again.

Thats really something else! Is the tail bike a GL1500? It had trouble keeping up and didn't power out of the curves as fast as the first bike and also it didn't quite sound like a GL1800 engine.

I can appreciate skilled riders,but to ride like this on a public rode and not a track is asking for a accident. As soon as they find a corner with a little fine gravel/rock sediment,which they wont see,your toast,been there done this. The old FJ1200 and I survived though,and fortunately the road I was on had very little traffic.Good Luck though, I wish them well.

This guy is an idiot -- overtook another rider across double yellow, highly unsafe and illegal. Also, riding exactly opposite to correct -- accelerating into curve, then slowing, then speeding up after. One approaches the curve with a controlled line, then accelerate out of the apex for stability and control. i appreciate the cool perspective from camera, but this is a poor model for riding.

Accidents going someplace to happen. There's old riders and bold riders but few old bold riders.

P.S. yes I tilted my head and the scraping noises made the hair stand up on my arms:shock:
