MSRH is considered bumpy, although not too bad once you know where they all are, but i don't think that's what caused what you referred to as "shaking"...that was most probably the camera mount shaking due to the high RPM's

At those speeds, the bikes move around a lot more that it does with us mere mortals. I have a video of Larry Meyers on my gixxer on MSR-H and the bike was shaking and vibrating throughout the ride.

Three things I noticed: he is closer to the curbs than riders in any other videos, he ran over the curb coming out of turn 1 onto the pit straight and he hit the same sports on each lap.

jesus.. i just recently grew the to upshift through a turn, and i see him downshifting through turns when he's coming to a braking point. is that something anyone else here does? i'm too chicken to even try it. would it be pretty safe to do on a bike with a slipper clutch as long as you revmatched okay for the most part?

That's what separates the fast expert from a novice or trackday guys.

i run in the middle class aka intermediate and i downshift mostly going into a turn. optimal shifting and braking is going to be done before and after a corner or you upset the bike. imma look at it again but you really dont want to brake in a corner rather use the throttle to control your position in the corner.now at times like in the diamonds edge, or whatever its called, when hes coming into it on that back straight. he is leaned over a little bit but not to where the frame is absorbing any of the force. he is upright enough to where the suspension can still give and take a little. as far as upshifting maybe you need to hang in that gear longer (higher rpm) or choose another gear for that turn. correct me if im wrong. im not a pro like some other people here feel free to critique. im here to learn too
