bmw sparking on turns

hey guys,
so I'm watching tv yesterday and I see this bmw commercial for there bike, not sure which one, but everytime it turns it showed a close up of the muffler sparking on the road. maybe its me but I would not buy a bike that hits the ground so easily when riding 2 up. any comments on this. they were not even leaned over all that much.

BMW's tend to drag the pipes because the suspensions are compressed from carrying the full wallets of their buyers/riders. They also want the pipes to touch down first so you don't grind the heads off the engine block.

BMW has some "creative" commercials.

Did you see the one where a rider jumps into a river with a big +750lb GS? In real life if that jump went wrong and the bike landed on you in the river, no GPS or heated grips would save your ass!

I don't find sparks creative. I think it looked crappy, and how long would the pipes last grinding on every turn.
