    Could have just link right to the video instead of your other post with the video, but whatever....

    Those guys are good, though, no denying that. And to think that one of the guys I work with failed his riding test at the DMV because he couldn't do the slalom without putting his foot down too many times! And he only rides a Ninja 600! I passed the riding test with a perfect score on my Piaggio BV200 scooter, and it's very close in size and weight to his Ninja, just a lot less powerful.

    Impressive.

    I'd think it's easier to maneuver those cop bikes at low speeds instead of a sportbike, because the sportbike's center of gravity is higher and the riding position doesn't really lend itself to the kind of upright lean-the-bike-but-not-your-body technique that the cops were using in that vid.
