Yes, I also thought about it. Moreover, I would like to have a smaller exhaust on each side. And on a lower position, so that I can use two left side KTM bags = more space. The right side one seems to be very small.

Yeah seems like those riders may die. Only takes one car turning left as he is passing. Car driver looks ahead, no-one coming, safe to turn left. Gets hit by a rider passing from behind on the left at 140mph. Hope they do not kill any innocents. Very possible though. Clearly those riders need to take it to the track.

I took a few minutes to watch some of that and I have to say he's a pretty sloppy rider. He may think he's Joe Racer, but truthfully was riding way over his skill level in several places. You only get to roll the dice so many times before it comes up snake eyes. He really should slow it down before he learns the hard way.

Greece, and although his driving was illegal in this case (as it is in most of the countries), it was also way bellow his personal limits (to answer KMC1's misguided comment)

Oh, now i see, he's from Greece, trying to run away from paying taxes
Don't get me wrong, I like stuff like that just not on public roads, don't want my kids to be run over by such an idiot, had to be said.
Maybe it looks more dramatic than it is?

Misguided? I hardly think so. I only watched a couple minutes of the stupidity and there was a couple places he passed cars going into blind corners, and one corner in particular where he was on the opposite side of the road going into a blind corner because he blew the corner leading into it. He is just shit lucky the lane was empty at the time he went through because there was no recovery and a very good chance of going over the car and into the woods - aka the "cheese grater".

Just because he was going fast, doesn't mean he's a good rider. Truthfully I think he is pretty much an amateur rider with way more bike than he should be riding.

Awesome bike though! I'm really looking forward to it getting to our market and soon!

Lol....yeah, or u can die with your brains splattered inside your helmet and your guts caught in the air intake of an oncoming car too I don't really see riding within both your limits and the limits of the road you're on as being one of those "are you living or are you surviving" things.

Well well, here he is a well known racer this guy, who has also been involved in the development of the upcoming 800 V2.
