Bullet Posted May 11, 2010 Report Share Posted May 11, 2010 Hi peeps, I've just come back from testing my CBR600FV (1997) race bike at Angelsey in North Wales and a friend of mine has some video of me riding around, thought a few of you might be interested in some of the video (which is taken from behind, my bike is blue and i've got white leathers on) on my friends GSXR750K7. I didn't know the video was actually being taken, so I wasn't showboating or anything, just trying a few things as we race at this circuit. My main aim was to test a few things, bed my new brakes in and get used to my new race tyres, more of in a moment. So, for some context, this was taken in 2nd session of the day, I'm running my race bike, which has about 110bhp at the rear wheel, (which is good for a steelie racer, which is the class I race in with Wirral 100). My friend's bike is about 140bhp at the back wheel and you can see it's noticably quicker in a straight line, but I hope I do him in the turns. This is the fast session of the trackday, most of the bikes are 1000's the occasional racer and 600. I'm fresh out of the pits and to note, I didn't use tyre warmers so just had to bed my tyres in and get them upto speed. The tyres are new to me and I shall be racing these now for the remainder of the year. They're Dunlop D211GP Racer NTEC's, in medium front, and endurance rear. Pressure from cold for your techno weenies is around 21 rear, and 29 front. Oh, and they're absolutely fantastic things. You'll see a very fast race bike at one point, he's running a superbike with about 195bhp at rear. The last 30 seconds of the video the more observant of you will notice a lad with one arm, (he's a superbikeschool student too, and races. top fella). This first video is session 2, there is another one to come later on which is session 3, when I up the pace a little, and my friend struggles to keep up a bit, but you'll get the point, and see what a wonderful circuit Angelsey is. For those of you in the UK, come and ride, it's fantastic. http://www.youtube.c...u/0/pZAn2CI8vC8 (session 2) http://www.youtube.c...u/0/L_p8IqbvnyM (Session 3) http://www.youtube.com/user/mclucker#p/u/0/PoPwqwcZMqY (sessoion 4), Last one he tried to keep up. Hope you enjoy, please post comments/observations, I'm always up for some input. I know I need to work harder on the brakes, but it's a trackday, and i'm trying to be relatively courteous.
