That's a car dummy. Doesn't work on motorcycles.
Look up the coriobalous effect. This isn't rocket surgery.

Coriobalous force works differently in the southern hemisphere. You don't see him doing any stoppies now do you?

Probably from another location since it certainly doesn't look like Boorman's bike or riding suit as they appeared in Long Way Down.

If Dicko flushes his Aussie toilet it swirls CW, they put shaft drives on the right there and they scroll CCW. Rivers flow north, his GPS points at China. I calibrate his advise 180 out but he's good on GP info.

There is a pic of Desmo doing an FJR wheelie, and a damn good one, somewhere on the interwebs....being rather thorough with factual erasure it/he can't be found anywhere.

I just googled Boorman Wheelie and Boorman Stoppie, plenty of images come up.

I believe the pic I posted above is one of the camera bike. I could be wrong.

There are also heaps of pics from the off road training facility in Whales where he trains.

However, for the record, I am not interested in owning a shaft driven bike, and I do clean and lube my chain using the Motul chain cleaner and lube kit (not that anyone gives a rats).

Now, please, as you were, carry on poking the (Desmo) bear.
