YellowDuck Posted January 9, 2013 Report Share Posted January 9, 2013 Forum seems a bit slow this time of year, so here's something for you to do if you're bored. Here is some video from my last track day. It was taken by another rider in the group, riding an R1. I come on screen at 0:45:40, moving to the front of a group of three bikes. The fellow with the camera slots in behind me by the next corner, and then follows me for the rest of the lap. In another session I am on camera for about 1/2 a lap beginning at 1:10:10 or so. Accepting comments an anything you can see regarding form / technique in these not-so-great videos. I wrote about this trackday in another thread. It was very cold and, as I figured out later, my tires were already shot. This kind of sapped my confidence as I got a lot of creepy slides in the morning sessions. For the rest of the day I stayed 2 - 3 seconds off my normal pace. Still, I think you can get a general idea about body position, lines, etc. Looking at the video, I think I am doing a bit better in the second segment, turning a bit more sharply and not making secondary steering inputs. Even so, in the long slow corner beginning at 1:10:35 I look pretty bad - that corner scares me a little even when I am trusting my tires! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHPGnl7vpB0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
