See how the rider is actually leaning upright? He seems to have shifted his ass towards the inside, then is countering that lean by moving upright. That's a cool way to drag hard parts by forcing the bike over, but the bike and rider could handle the turn more quickly if he drove his left elbow down (and his riding position would follow). Then he would have less bike lean with more weight inside and able to carry more speed with less lean and less chance of levering the rear tire off the pavement.

I know I'm wrong...so go ahead guys...
You're not wrong. He's sitting upright with his head on centerline while the bike is out of lean angle.

Looks like he is saving room on the left for an ADV one.

Doohan's also on track slicks, not 50/50 tires like the GS.

The difference between the two is that he is cornering on a bike that wont drag hard parts nearly so easily.

It also looks like he has already apexed and is fading to the outside of the turn with LOTS of turn left.

Doohan had lots of strange riding quirks that he made work. Certainly not saying that he was not skilled, just that his style really should not be used as an example of "the way it's done".

Cant really learn to ride by watching someone or reading books about, just doesn't work like that, most likely forget everything you read, the first corner you turn, and no matter how experienced you might be, on a strange road, the line is not allways the perfect one.

Just because it can be done that way, doesn't mean it should be nor that it is the best way.

The seat on the black bike looks like a moccasin. Comfy
