Thanks for posting that, I don't think anyone has even posted that video yet this week.
That is no different than any other common timed course in japan, and embarrassing enough, not much different than those silly timed police events in the us with giant harley's squeezing in between narrow sections of cones. As stated before, a good "auto cross" track with motorcycles would have to be quite large or to that of the same size of a full auto cross set up. To get some sense from it, those riders are still having to counter their body weight off from the bikes lean angle to compensate for lack of weight placement and speed because there isn't a strong enough gyroscopic pull keeping the bike up. Doesn't mean you'd be hanging off all the time, but it does mean you would be in certain sections; Otherwise a sport bike would be awful as compared to something like a super moto or naked bike with risers. It's just not meant to do it...
