So why do you ride with clutch disengaged so that the engine is just idling? I see you're not a fan of blipping the throttle and sometimes you skip gears on downshifts

Anyway, looks like you had fun

I was learning the bike and the electronics to be honest. First time on the track with a I4 and this bike. Bythe last session thats all almost gone.

I also don't rev match while down shifting, it's another thing to concentrate on/get wrong. That and my slipper clutch is vacuum operated so if I rev match it doesn't work.

I only watched a little bit in the middle of the video and it looked pretty good. I'm not sure what line they taught but it looked like to me that you could take turn 2 a little tighter and use up more of the track on some of the other turns like the whole section after the back straight. Still awesome job and looked like a blast.

We need moar videos!!!

Yup, the trick is that turn two is down hill so it has some wierd optical effect. My buddy noticed the same thing! LEarning is fun!

I had a blast!!!! But I realized again that I hate sportbikes!!! I rode my ZX6R before lunch and it was killing me...my hands, legs, back all hurt and I was out of breath. After lunch I hopped on my Supermoto and immediately had a smile on my face the whole time. I was a lot faster on my motard than the sportbike dispite the top speed of 113MPH I passed so many ppl on my motard it had me laughing my off....needless to say my ZX6R will be up for sale later today

Agreed for everywhere but the track. I like the more agressive position of my sport bike on the track. Will you ever catch me owning a street legal sport bike? No way in .

On the straights did you even bother tucking on the motard? Did you look and see what difference it made on your top speed?

If it helps, it's not the tuck that makes you look goofy.

Sounds like you guys had fun.

super fun riding with all the fellas. I wasn't even suppose to ride, but ah well. Now its time to upgrade to a panigale, S1000rr or the RSV4R to be able to keep up. Everybody was really fast.
