    His tranny seemed to be giving him fits on lap 3, but it selled in and he cruised to the front easily.

    Should I have renewed respect for the ES2, or was it an amazing ride by a gifted rider?

    Either way, VERY impressive.

    Obviously not an organized race with that method of starting the field, but you know the fast guys don't just roll over...

    That sure was a entertaining video that ole ES2 was moving pretty fast and sounded awesome . I don't know what the other bikes were doing they sure weren't there to race.

    It was obviously an exhibition.

    The write-up does say they're parade laps, he's taking it more seriously than the others :)

    At least a few others seemed serious, but apparently knew their bike's limitations. The guy on the Honda four thrashed it pretty soundly, note it was smoking a good deal more at the end...

    I have done a few "parades", after the pace bike goes in all hell breaks loose, and flats appear on the bottom of the panniers . carb nuts undo themselves, something expensive calls a halt to the fun. Dare not let the wife see on board footage of bikes sliding off across the bows,she would conficscate my pension.
