skills on a V

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTtv1ADtFKg

Dude has some skills on his V. Does the course quick. My question is how does he remember that route. I would be confused as hell. Looks like the driving test on crack. I would like to give it a whirl.

kind of looked like a riding test to me...appears to be some sort of riding school in Europe (I could be thousands of miles off here)...quite good skills...get yourself some friends..some cones and a parking lot and go it...it's a good way to spend an afternoon or two a year...it's ALL in the "friction zone" and not so much the throttle...

Definitely a school, this one: http://www.vrom-rijopleidingen.be/

It's a Belgian domain, though the website is written in Dutch.

Back in the day I did the Buell sponsored thing that was similar (battletrax). A local motorcycle list also used to have play/training days. Here's me on my old hawk gt:

As a not-particularly-well-traveled and rather ignorant Yank, I'd thought it was primarily French. I now know better.

Nicely done. I wondered how well a bike with such a high COG would be able to get around a course like that. Low COG bikes are generally where it's at for that kinda play time.
