it's a repost but still a good one. that's at Deal's Gap, and you can actually hear them dragging hard parts on the bike.

Footpegs and Pipes are the most frequent casualties.

The 1800 Wing is actually suprisingly nimble for such a big bike, and that motor is just incredible.

I don't know, the camera guys bike sounds more like a sportbike, anyone know what it is?

and the sound didn't sound how i think a knee dragging would sound (i have yet to drag a knee) , sounded like metal scraping or something brittle.

I'm pretty sure both bikes were Wings. I saw the original post somewhere that included pictures of both bikes.

That sound is definitely metal scraping...like a footpeg or a pipe. I heard that same sound many times cornering agressively on my R1100RT. The pentaly for not having your legs folded up under you like a pretzel is poor ground clearance.
