No question the XR750 goes well at flat track. A study of the rules over the years will also show how they looked good against the competition.
The video posted tho was of a short track, and that is where the speedway bikes rain supreme. There has been a US world champion speedway rider. Speedway shows side way riding at its best. The bigger tracks are also cool.
I also agree it was a bunch of folks having fun. BUT, for me, it would be a waste of time. I have gone sideways on ice BTW.
I loved it! It proved a couple of things: Helmets save lives as everyone's head hit the ground first! Loud pipes do save lives cause you can hear that 700lb, ape hangered sled really comin' at you from a long way off.
The ol' guy that won, on his Sportster obviously had some 'flat track time' under his belt as did the 2nd place guy on the Buell.
Not to be sexist but what the heck was the ah-person doing on that Buell blast and slowing everybody down that was worried about hitting her---not hitting on her:biggrin:
