Assuming you're talking about the wreck in CO. I did a search. That guy was 31 in 2016, so I think not. Pretty sure the one on here is older than that.

This will always be a great thread, to bad so many of the picture links are broken.

Some screen shots from my AR trip. Not nearly as low as I need to be, but much better than I was this time last year.

I haver some suggestions based on the pictures.

Start by moving your butt back onto the seat about 3" and get your chest closer to the tank, that will allow you to rotate your chest into the turn a little more and give you more confidence and get lower.

Advice well received. That was my first ride with the pegs in that position (Vortex rearsets). Gotta fiddle with them a bit more until I can get them in a spot where I feel my weight is supported. The bike definitely handles better with my weight farther back, but at higher speeds I can't seem to keep weight on the pegs and have to hang onto the bars like a monkey in the wind.

Definitely looks better, but tough to say turning two different directions. I know I'm much more comfortable hanging off on right handers.

Both of those pics were from a few weeks ago.

Ahh that makes way more sense, now I just sound silly. I was thinking in the first photo you had your head and upper-half a bit more upright, and less committed. At least that's how I'm justifying it so I feel less stupid
