Not sure if Josh Herrin is testing the Yamaha R1’s traction control, lean-sensitive ABS, or both at once. But he’s got the tires howling like a pair of mating orangutans in this sideways video clip our pal Jim found on Alpinestars’ Instagram feed. Our best advice is not to ride like this on the street unless you have an AMA Superbike Championship and a Daytona 200 win on your resume. Also, stay in school so you don’t have to be a videographer. Actually, come to think of it, whoever shot this clip on their phone is the bravest person in the room, or possibly just the least familiar with an important law of physics. Cue disclaimer: Professional rider on closed course. Do not try at home.
