Hear 'ya. For me, wild and crazy is blipping the throttle on the K-S. <g> And speaking of that (bliping the throttle), some of you guys thinking of the FJR, that clip was interesting from a, sort-of, testride perspective; the sound that bike made was like a dentist drill as compared with the F-1 (and assume new GT) like baratone rumble of the K-S.
And, did you notice that everytime the FJR got a little throttle, the front end skyed, almost wheelie like - maybe even when you don't want or need that effect - like your late and going to work.
By the way, speaking of going to work, that dude has one hell of a commute. Judging from the Euro plates on the surrounding vehicles, it appears his commute is all the way from Texas to Barecelona!! (liked the palm trees in the video)
Mostly what this bike did in the video could be "accomplished" on an F-650; it being a much better "city" bike.
