That's got to be one well balanced bike. I've been working on balancing at a stop without putting the old outriggers down, but that bike actually recovered from some wobbles without a rider. Guess I need a GP bike. The wife will be thrilled.

Sorry to say, I think it's fake.

The first clue is the way he fell off. Looks like he just let go. I didn't see any plausible reason for him to fall. Who crashes like that?

Second, as a youtube poster, noted, the camera seems to move independent of the bike, although, if it's mounted on the fairing, a riderless ocsillation would have it moving opposite the tank/seat/tail. But even before he fell off, it looked like the camera movement was not quite in synch.

Third, it's clearly not a MotoGP bike and the other racers seemed very choreographed.

Fourth, I think the film has been sped up to give the impression of speed. It's a bit too herky-jerky and went the rider falls off, he doesn't roll or slide much.

Then again, ya never know. Fun anyway.

A human only runs at maybe 20 mph. Good catch. Who races at less than 20 mph?

I'll bet you go around the neighborhood telling all the 3 year-olds that Santa isn't real and you're grilling the Easter Bunny for dinner. Sheese.
