Hopefully you had ran out of gas and was pushing your bike or had 2 flat tires and were blinded by the oil shooting out of the exhaust of the harley when you were having difficulty keeping up with him otherwise you must need some riding lessons.

I started to pick up on the technique of turning in as late as possible, adding to the sight line through the corner.
Heh, Scandinavian Flick a la Dragon stylee!
I do the same thing...in the cage...on snow. Dunno if loading up the suspension on a bike helps on the Dragon, but taking the wide line on the street is pro forma up here running unknown backroads, where you run into everything from ATV's, cyclists, potholes and roadkill porcupine.

I wonder what his line would have looked like if the van wasn't there?

It's gonna really hurt when you get that toe caught up hard enough to twist your ankle around backwards while your foot gets sucked under. Can't you get some feelers if your boards won't fold?

The bike would have made it all the way to the woods if the van hadn't slowed him down.

Yeah, cuz the rider who was dragging hard parts and starting to slide out when he was still 2 feet from the right side white line would have totally saved it if the van had been 3 inches farther over.
