Watch and Learn: Cornering Is Serious Business, and so Are Crashes

Bad day for this Honda rider who went out for a ride on a winding road and asked one of his friend to shoot the whole trip with a Go Pro camera attached to his Kawasaki Concours.
I don't want to sound like a cruiser hater, but how come we rarely see chopper riders who actually lean through the turns, as riding a motorcycle is supposed to be? This chap is also a good example of how such riders keep stiff and straight up in their seats as if they were at home one their couch, preparing for the next beer.

Really, guys, the fact that you're riding big cruisers has nothing to do with how riding actually works: you still have to lean during a turn, because.. guess what? Leaning harder can, in fact compensate for the unsafe speed you're approaching the turn with.

So even if you're coming in a bit too hot, leaning could make up for this. Rear brake does the exact opposite. Lol, back to some training now.
