It can indeed be done.... but I bet he has some of the seat padding removed from the riders seat to make space for his huge ba :172:ls!

WOW!!  :087:

I used too push my ST1100 to the limit... but not with my knee touching the tarmac! Was always fun going past a sports bike on the inside of a roundabout like that!!

...But that's insane!
...on an old 900  :164:

Shows what can be done and how good the 'tourer' is in the handling department (that we all knew anyway!)  :062:

The best I have managed is my boot toe scraping round one of Milton Keynes roundabouts!

I did wonder about those Bank Angle Indicators on the riders footrests..... :084:

The good book says you can wear them down to 5mm before an "unsafe" bank angle is reached ....

I don't thonk I have got anywhere near them yet,
so at least they're not going to get worn out any time soon !

Nice to see what the Trophy  can do though  :152:

It can definitely go pretty darn low...

The bike I have is a former demo bike I got at a decent discount, and the lean angle indicators are almost completely worn down on both sides!  :005: :125:
