What happens when you forget the bus stop is there

Two of us went down, another ran off, all within a minute. What are the chances? I don't know about the other riders but I thought I was entering the sweeper and forgot all about the bus stop. New to the track (and riding) and these 2 turns look almost identical..

From the video it appears it was a slow speed mishap, glad your okay and the bike also looked like it had minimal damage.

When i first started riding msrh, i watched a video on here that had the go pro mounted on the front fairing left of the headlight. And i watched it over and over until i memorized the track and the line . I think i watched it over and over for 3 days before i was able to name all the corners without watching the video. It worked good for me and it might help you out as well good luck broski

You need to slow down and memorize the track, look further ahead as well for turning points, maybe also set some brake points. Look through the turn and if you are, dont pay attention to your speed gauge, lap timer, or whatever else you may have. Also I noticed your line was off in the carousel, look for the X's that the instructors put out, those well get you in a much better line than nothing. The line you took into the carousel is dangerous.


Here's a video of the line at msrh.

Here's a video of the line at msrh.

He might need a video with someone running much slower lap times because ive seen whoop and he hauls around the track. Hard to notice everythng when its zooming past at break neck speed

Work on constantly scanning ahead one turn and work towards your main focus is looking ahead one turn and only glancing back. If you had been looking where you should be you never would have confused where you were.
Looking ahead also makes it easier to run the correct line and flow through the turn.

While I have never tracked a motorcycle, this is exactly what they teach you in a car. I was told that I should be looking as far down the track as I am physically able. After I started doing that, I felt like I picked up the track at MSRH much more easily.

I always watch a couple of the guys videos from MH the night before I go. I know you do Round Robin but it really helps me to remember everything. i have been a few times but you of course want to avoid things like that. Glad you are ok

Nice video... You can use a Philips screw driver to tighten the gopro down better.

Yikes... Be sure to tether you gp... You can use a strap from an old camera. Loop it through itself on the screw that holds the gp... Also make sure you use that little white lock so it can't snap out. I dropped my bike on the right side at GSS and got a bit of road rash on the gp case and it did fine.Click image for larger version
