He might be touching swingarm, probably not tire at least...

Seriously now: looks like fun, but FWI've seen of the Dragon, I doubt I'd ride a bicycle there. (and if it is what I think it is: Calfee its a VERY expensive tandem. Like in the $10-12k range)

Sweet carbon tandem complete with joints so it'll come apart for travel.
Oh, and a smokin stoker who knows where to look in a corner.

That's a knee slider sparking, edge of left foot may be rubbing too.

I think he meant the right boot appears to be touching the tire but if anything it mostly likely would be the swing arm. If I do that I melt a boot. Learnt from experience.

Ah right, seems like that would be annoying. Good thing I ride like a ninny so I never have to worry about that.

You can see that his head is still right on line with the bike and most of his weight is shifted to the inside. I don't see much of a fail here.

Here you can plainly see his head moving back and to the left. Perhaps his GoPro "Zapruder Edition" will have some footage from the grassy knoll just ahead.

Looks great to.me.

Notice...we're NOT looking at the rear of the bike straight away, Therefore I believe, by looking at the bend in the elbows...hi right arm being more outstretched, his left appearing to be tucked in a bit, that he IS off-centered to the inside. The angle throws it all off.
