Motorcyclist avoids accident by centimeters. Skip to 17seconds in.

I wonder if the rider gave the driver a dirty look.

I love my car. Buy your own

If he did rage, it'd be (imho) undeserved. It's a bike and it's screaming along at 200+ I imagine it'd be hard to see in your blindspot/mirror.

There were a couple of times he down shifted at 150-220kph while at 45º..... now im not a rider but is that a silly thing to do? do bikes kick out under downshifts?

Not always. There isn't much flywheel effect with that engine.  The lean always looks worse than it is when watched on video compared to being on the bike.

Agreed, any 90kph corner is doable at over 200+, the start of Range road heading into Victor from Normanville is crazy fast with a Phillip Island feel about it. Let me change that comment, some say that the start of Range road heading into Victor from Normanville is crazy fast apparently….   :D

Like how there is even a Moto Trials bike, albeit a Montesa 4RT.
