Thanks for posting this. Chris Ulrich normally gives these two up rides at the national races to raise funds for the Roadracing World Action Fund. This fund is to primarily purchase air fence to make the tracks safer for the racers. A good cause that also introduced journalists, celebrities and others to their first experience with motorcycles.

I always enjoy reading about their experiences. Lots of big smiles.

That was a fun read. People look at my car and ask " Is it fast? It looks fast!" I go " Umm No. Not really."

Echoing the comments of the two above read. So many quotable passages in there and they resonant well with a FZ09 rider, especially the Pez dispenser analogy.

"Depending on the corner, and the lean, the air pressure is peeling back my shoulders, or trying to lift my helmet off at 140 mph. If Arai didn't make a Pez dispenser before, they do now."

Thanks for sharing.

The passenger feels tossed way more than the pilot. It really is a rollercoaster for the pillion.

Sounds like a good way to ruin a pair of leathers.

Hahaha good shit. Unfortunately, the average schmuck with just a passing familiarity with a steering wheel would get nothing our of it. They would only think "Omg, I almost died, you only have seconds to live, why do you do it, you're insane, you're taking colossal risks for no reason."
