Some serious VFR action: Japanese Motorcycle Police Competition

I could tell what they were riding even without the video, what a soul satisfying sound...….

 

Wonder what tires they were using? I'm guessing a Japanese manf., but I did not recognize the pattern in the few shots that showed them.

Interesting viewing. I think I get it, anyone who completes the course without crashing is disqualified :wacko:

Seen quite a few of these before and loved them all.

 

Surprising (at least to me) that they're not using the clutch at all, just throttle and front brake. Maybe the rear brake too but it's difficult to tell.

 The first one looked like the 'Fails' video, but the second one, wow! All women 5'1'', a foot shorter than me and probably half my weight, throwing those around like dirt bikes. Awesome!

Notice how long the handlebars are so they can ride them without sprawling over the tank.

I agree. Just WOW! I've probably duplicated every one of those fails (blush) except for the falls on the wet tarmac, although I have gone down in wet grass. I wonder if those bikes have linked brakes. I suspect they do. And I see very little movement across the seats. 

 

How Do They Do That?!
