Looks like she just kept on leaning when it was time to pick it up for the next turn, almost like she let it 'lay down', most likely she was looking at the front tire.

I've got 06, I put in 2-1 exhaust, Wings can without a db killer, akra mapping. While it's a bit on the loud side, it completely fixed the "rowing" between 3-5 thousand. It's thirsty though.
