Exclamation You think your a good driver

Found this when browsing the internet a little bit ago and figured it was worth sharing. this is absolutely insane.

Unreal Control On Honda CBR600 [VIDEO]

I figured this could be in either driving skills or off topic depending on where the conversations go. Mods feel free to move it if I am wrong.

some of these people are ridiculous.. this video is starting to find its way to some other forums and everyone is like man i wish i could drive like this. that has to be nerve racking to get so close to completely sideways like that.

Now that's handling. They set the bar pretty high... I guess that's something to aim for.

Yep, I asked my friend who used to do Gymkhana. He said the handle bar is like mountain bike type. It is set higher and closer to the body so it is easier to handle. He is also sitting very close to the tank. (Japanese guy in the video was also commenting this)

And he has the stock muffler because it will keep the torque up higher than aftermarket ones, and the thing he fiddled after he done the course by his turn signal. It is his idle control. Doing this type of course, they keep the idle higher than stock 1.5K

He has body guard instead of frame slider. It supposed to be better if you ever drop bike
