TWS (Texas World Speedway) 9-28-08 Video

Well, I got a new toy a while back and finally got it mounted to the bike so I took a chance last weekend to play with it some. Finding a website to host the video killed the quality of it, but it's still nice to see and find several areas that I can start working on next time out around the track.

This is about 10 min. of footage around TWS (Texas World Speedway) in Group B on Sunday just before lunch.

BDubb, the camera image looks great. You have the pov.1, right? Can you take a picture of the camera mounted on the bike? I'd like to see how you mounted the lens and what you did with the recording unit.

Because my aren't big enough to hold it open on a 1000 at the top of 6th gear and turn in. I have been trying to let off at the 3 board, but with only being my second time at TWS (Texas World Speedway) I still have a number of things to work on. Going a bit deeper before letting off and turning in at turn 1 will be one of the items I will work on.

Baby steps... The bike is much better than I am as a rider and is a good ways away from being a stock 1000. As I improve and work up confidence I am sure I'll begin to take turn 1 much better along with the rest of the track.

The camera is a POV.1 with the wide angle lense, although the video doesn't really show the wide angle aspect after uploading.

rd - That's correct the times were around 2:01 with a best of 2:00.5 on one of those laps.

Curt - I'll take some pics this evening and send them your way. The camera is mounted in the nose of the bike similar to how you see the MotoGP bikes rigged up in photos. The recorder is zip tied to the fairing stay. I spoke with POV and don't think I'll have any luck getting a cable thats another foot or two longer so I can mount the recorder in the tail section.

I've had that same conversation with them, about the longer cable. At least they make one now. Spoke with them perhaps 4 weeks ago and it was on back order. Are you using the remote? My remote is velcroed to the tank. Works great. They didn't come with the wide angle when I bought mine; you are a lucky guy.

brad, as long as i am there for the race weekend, i will def. lead you around the track for a few laps to help show you what i was talking about. you're def. looking good out there and i think you are pretty fast there for the amount of times that you have visited the track. as i said, i think that i can help you drop a couple of seconds if you work on those few items i told you about. If i'm not there, then we'll get Tom to help you out, he seems to be stronger than me in those exact areas.

I happen to be wearing those new stiff leathers, i changed (raised) the height in the front so it was giving me some troubles all day long, i am faster than that but with those two objects in my way, i was having to really work hard to do what i was doing. i am going to lower the front back down before the next t/d.

The remote is around the upper triple with the little wrist band thing that came with it.

I only saw that they had a 5m and a 1.5 meter cable. The 1.5m is the one that comes with it and I need something right about 2m or so. The 5m length is WAY too long.


Send yours in and have them install a wide angle lense... I'd assume it would be possible without much hassle, not sure of the price though.

Was that you out there again between turns 4 & 5 in the video? Looks like your bike but hard to tell since I thought you were done for the day on it already.

Looks great man! Your lines are good. A few trackdays ago I was doing around 2 mins too and letting off in about the same spot. Holding the throttle until just before the end of the pit wall dropped 1-2 secs off my time. There's obviously a lot more time to be dropped in other areas (I'm working my off trying!) but just that one change, for me, was good for 1-2 secs.

If it is not too much trouble I would like to see them also. Great Video!
