Same I heard. Actually 2 bikes high side. One was ok, one not so much. I heard he was knocked out, then came too, but was out again.

Here are all my front-facing videos from Level 2 (sessions 2-5). I was running middle of the pack (passed, got passed) so chances are good you're in one of the videos. Rear facing ones are still uploading, will edit post once I have link..

so is mine, but youtube has a decent stabilizer algorithm. Just go to enhance options and turn it on to level 3 or 4. It takes about an hour to process but worth it. My rear camera is mounted on exhaust cover and shakes like a rattle, but postprocessing smoothed it out.. try it. btw, I think I followed you for a while unless there was another red 999 with your same black/white leathers.

My buddy and I were on 996s's. His is mostly (primer) white because he switched to track fairings. Mine is still red and (painted) white because I only partially switched.

I'm kind of glad the weather was off in the morning, I was trying to get use to some of the mods I did to the bike since last track day, so staying slower than normal was good. After lunch was very fun, though.

I'll see what YouTube can do. When I put on the race tail fairing, I mounted my camera to it. Those fairings are not exactly the most sturdy, so it bounced a lot. Its good enough to see whats going on behind me, but not sure itf YouTube worthy.

If you watch my other videos and listen to the "talking too" we got, we were not well behaved, but yes, only a few yellows and no reds

Since you didn't go to class, I'm blaming you for the tongue lashing we got.

Yellow streetfighter? I thought you were on the concourse or your Duke??? I'll look though.

I took the Concours for round robin, and the second session after 2 laps I pitted and took the Yellow FZ6 Naked with a round headlight. The concourse was a boat.

I didn;t get a chance to take the Duke cause i was having too much fun with the fz6

Also if any of you have any footage please let me know, I am having Short Film Productions put together a 15minute Short film of my Memorial Day 2016!!! He's the guy who does my House videos.

Agreed. Definitely not well behaved. A fair bit of ego and impatience running rampant. Not the worst I have been in the middle of, but not the best either.
