Maybe she will learn something from how she rides after watching and reading the comments. Or maybe she will just die as you suggested, you kind soul.
You can't expect everyone to agree on your definition of good riding, I assume you meant good.

pretty good video. Looks like you all had fun.

As others have mentioned, crossing the yellow line (especially in turns with low oncoming visibility) is flirting with disaster.

I strongly advise a track day or two. You would be surprised how much you learn and just how much more comfortable you are when handling your bike at high speeds.

of course I could be the ignorant here since I have no idea of what your on track experience is. lol!

Entertaining videos that might land you in hot water, especially if someone gets hurt.

She needs to be concentrating on keeping that bike in the correct lane and not the body position. She's not really leaning the bike that far over either.

Take a look at a truly fast guy's body position like Jonathan Rea and see that he does not hang off as much as one would think. The guy with the BMW in the video hangs off more.

Already said here, but the video is concerning on so many levels.

She really doesn't need to be thinking about body position at the speeds you guys are traveling as much as she does being safe (staying in her lane, running decent lines, corner entry / exit ect).

I hope that she can relearn some of these habits and focus less on things like burn outs, wheelies and body position and focus more on proper riding techniques that will keep her safe.

Best of luck to you both.

At the risk of being accused of piling on, she seriously needs to slow that bike down so that she can work on the technical aspect of positioning her bike, setting up her corners, obtaining good distance vision, and good overall control management. As for body position, she needs to center her butt on the saddle and simply lean forward and in on her turns while she is perfecting her techniques. Sticking her knee out like a Singapore hooker and shoving her butt over is doing her no favors.

TLDR version: Slow the heck down and perfect the techniques.

Normally when I watch this person’s videos I think to myself that he has no idea what he’s talking about, doing or otherwise has a clue. However he titled this video “This Girl Can RIP” on youtube and I thought “Yep. Nailed it.”

The bottom line is: If you cannot stay on your side of the yellow line you are not only not a good rider, but you are riding above your limits and a danger to everyone around you.

You post up these videos of your rides. There are abundant wheelies, the aforementioned yellow line crossings, occasional shots of your speedometer showing high numbers.

One of these days you or one of your riding buddies is going to get into a serious crash the result of which will be law enforcement followed by lawyers (yours or someone else's). Hopefully no one dies.

In the event of one of you being seriously injured or some innocent motorist suffering the same fate (think back about that Yamaha rider who crossed the yellow and hit that Porsche head on), lawyers and investigators will find your video clips, if not from that particular day then maybe some of your earlier posts here or on social media.

If you are trying to get a settlement because the incident is not your fault, believe me when I say these videos will diminish any settlement. If someone else is injured due to your spirited riding,.....

My next track day will be my 4th. I do pretty well with constructive criticism so I am really looking forward to more instruction.

For people pissed off...
I thought her body position improved. Yes, she made mistakes and she knows and will adjust. I don't have any beef with people's opinions. Maybe I should have trashed that footage but nobody watches my videos without some poor choices in them. Nobody has prolly thought to click on the motorcycle awareness meet-up video, which is fine. Ya'll like drama and its more fun to make a video that people watch.

I'd just add that if you get over the line on this ride, on this road you need to roll off and start working on your focus rather than your wrist on this ride, this road; not just resolve to do better on the next ride. The really messed up thing about that video is not that she got over the line, it's that she kept right on doing it: she completely refused to adjust to the fact that she was misreading the road and misjudging her limits. That isn't learning. It's the definition of not learning.
