Based on those clear leather gloves and his choice of footwear, I'd say it is the test rider from that German Tamburini video!

You know, after years of riding experience, I took the MSF rider's course to get a break on my insurance back in 1995. Honestly, I don't think I learned much, but something my salty old instructor said has stuck with me for over 12 years now, "Remember, when it is your turn to go down, you will crash wearing what you left the house in, so think that one through before you leave..."

Safety Police on Patrol...

Based upon the mis matched and unfashionable attire, it's no one from this forum.

Squid...no doubt.

Lack of gear...obvious.

Body position...poor.

His arms are stiff, no arch in back, knees not snug with tank. It is this position that we must constantly work to avoid. It's tiring.

Lately, I have found the STOMP tank pads do a GREAT job keeping me well seated, and from there I can work on body position, especially keeping my elbows bent.

The dragon was real tough for me, but given time and practice my comfort there would have improved, like anything else...

But ya gotta LOVE the Senna!

Have a good week-end guys!

Don't make it there too often, not sure they are on the forum. Looks like North Carolina tags.

I see lots of people in jeans, but even they are smart enough to wear boots and gloves!

That is great way to make a minor low side serious in a hurry.
