This is a video of us riding our Gold Wings through the entire length of

anyone wants to pay.

On a cold Sunday there were 4 lowsides that I knew of, this is the video
for two. Sorry for the shaky footage (more details below)
CBR600RR - Q2 Tires, track bodywork ziptied together. Rider was on cold
tires moments before lowside. Pressures were also too high for the weather.
No injury to rider, just cosmetic damage to the bike.
Ducati Panigale - 1199s was a rental from racyrentals.com, rider was from
out of town and only had two days on the bike. bike was damaged heavily
from frame, forks, wheels & bodywork. Rider only had minor bruises and road
rash to right forearm. Bike carried full coverage from rental so a $2500.00
vehicle waiver will be charged for the damage.
