Dragging a knee on a Honda Gold Wing – Click above to watch the video after the jump
It's not at all uncommon to see Honda two-wheelers at a local track day event. After all, the Japanese company is the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles, and its VFR, CB and CBR line of sport bikes have become synonymous with reliable performance. It's just as likely that you'll encounter one of Honda's motorcycles, in most cases a Gold Wing, when touring across the United States.
Naturally, it's significantly less common to see a CBR criss-crossing the country, and, perhaps even more so, a Gold Wing on the track. But that's not to say it can't be done. In fact, Honda's luxo-barge is well known to be a nice ride through the twistier bits that often connect those long, barren straightaways to the more sparsely populated cities across America.
That said, a rider scraping up his (or her, of course) knee pucks aboard a Honda Gold Wing isn't the kind of thing you expect to see every day. And that makes the video pasted after the break all the more impressive. Not too shabby, if we do say so ourselves.
