Nice vid. There's one guy in my area who routinely spanks sportsbikers on his Wing. One ride, we were going down a steep ultratwisty road, he was coasting (engine off) blowing past the sportsbikers like they were standing still. It's not the bike, it's the rider!

The journey is the destination.

Sportbike riders are fast in a straight line, but I have been able to hang with or pass a lot of them in the curves, on my Vulcan 750. The bikes themselves have amazing capabilities, but mot of the people that ride them don't. Many of them can do wheelies and stoppies, but are afraid to lean the bike over. In fact, there have been a number of single vehicle accidents on one of our local favorite motorcycle roads, where the rider went into a curve a little to fast, panicked, locked up the brakes, and skidded right off the road, when they could have easily made the turn just by leaning over a little further. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

True, and he don't seem to lay off the bike like most sport bike riders do...
Seems like I can hear the video bike scraping on most of the curves, like he is having a hard time keeping up, may just be pegs though...
He must really know the road, as I used to in the 80s when I worked a while at Fontana dam...
I couldn't hang in there with either of them, but I do know better than to try...lol...
There are several other videos on the page, some I didn't care for, and some I did...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Yeap, that's Yellow Wolf. He also did a run on the Dragon (well several runs) to rack up 1000 miles in under 24 hours all riding the Dragon.

Description with the video also mentions it
"this guy once did 106 runs on deals gap in 24 hours
fastest run about 11 minutes. He makes video's from your ride on Deals Gap (don't try to outrun this guy), on his tail is Fuse (also on a GoldWing)"

I believe Yellow Wolf is semi-retired now.

Anyone that has ever ridden a Goldwing will tell you they are really a Sportsbike in disguise

Dianna, there's a guy in our riders group that rides a GW. and after watching him ride I'd agree that the wing is really a Sport Tourer on Steroids.

Yes, it's my mid-life crisis.
