I Ride: 2013 Hyperstrada
Here is an older video from my GS days, where you can hear background discussions as we are connected by 2-way radio when riding.

Butt hanging on this road would wear anyone out, especially considering that we ride for 10 hours a day on these backroads.

Or, how about some butt hanging on my shortcuts like these?

Maybe some butt hanging on the Little Dragon. (Give Gary a break on his lines as he is in his 70s.)

Gotta LOVE the LIL Dragon! I live about 45 minutes from it. Some of the best riding around. During the week it's nearly deserted, so fun.

Me? Totally different riding styles for my two Ducatis. On the Panigale 899, I'm hanging a lot of upper body off the inside of the bike, helmet alongside the screen in the style invented by Casey Stoner, and copied by almost every GP racer since. On the Hyper, I'm Mike Hailwood, circa 1966, upright with the body right in the centre. It's a such a flickable steer that I don't need to get as active as I do on the Pani, where the extra body 'English' really helps the bike turn. Things change in the loose of course. Then it's weighting the outside peg, outside elbow up, inside foot out, and having memories of my good ol' CR500 stroker.

Ah the CR500. Pal of mine back in England just built a CR500 into a 2009 frame. Thing was brilliant. Sold it quickly though. lol. Made some good cash on it too.

I attended a training track day in Texas, where the instructors were alarmed when one rider began the foot down supermoto style of riding.

Makes me wonder where any track school might allow supermoto foot down riding?

I'm with RSL. On the road you have to be taking into account so many things. Last week I was on the road for 5 days - came up over a rise on a straight road at about 65mph, simultaneously a bicycle came over the top on the other side, and a car was straddling the lane to give it room - invisible to me until it came over the rise. I pulled a quick swerve and blew by. Didn't know I had it in me. The road will always surprise you.

Took delivery of the bike Friday and put a few hundred miles on her over the weekend. I have to say, it doesn't matter which method you use to corner her, she grips and just rips around the bends. I really think I'm going to enjoy my time with this bike and right now, I don't regret selling my RC51 for it.
