I do this but I don't like to keep my head on it because some of the straights are bumpy at the tracks I go to. I've never seen a racer do this up close. Interesting.

yeah it does help in a way to keep your head streamline with the bike and to prevent buffeting of your head at highspeed

Yep, that's exactly what it's for. You'll find it on most bikes.

I had no idea what that was for. Good find!

What twist throttle is that? Looks sick.
