Saturday footage - LSTD @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) 07/07/12

Finally got around to putting together some footage from LSTD's double weekend at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on 7/7-7/8. Unfortunately, I got hurt Saturday night and was unable to ride Sunday, but here's some footage from the first day in A group.


Enjoy.

nah, it was the tires, suspension, track, weather, the other guy, etc...

still, I got 10 TDs out of that front slick (6 TDs at TWS (Texas World Speedway)), so I'm fully prepared to attribute it to the tire while I'm happily scrubbing the new one in.

GPR's are fine and work well IMO. I don't know about costs these days but they were the most cost effective option when I set up the 600 and 750 that I raced in CMRA.

hey, the bike in the video IS the 600 you set up for cmra...

I agree with desmorider - GPRs are fine for the money. I personally don't think the build quality is there versus a Scotts, and if this bike hadn't already had the GPR on it, I would probably have picked an Ohlins linear (or a Scotts, if I just *had* to have a rotary style).

I only notice the steering damper on a 600 when I'm accelerating across bumpy pavement (TWS (Texas World Speedway) and MSRH in particular) and I've experienced a tank slapper strong enough to push the pads back in the front calipers and loosen the damper arm from the shaft on the GPR (this is the build quality issue I was referring to). otherwise, I never notice it is there, which is exactly how I like it. mine is probably due for servicing - I've noticed it weeping a little oil.

I wouldn't ride a liter bike on the street or track without a damper, especially if I was fond of high speed wheelies...
