My poor video attempt @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)

Since so many folks have been watching vids, and some asking about Gopro stuff, this was my measley attempt with it my first weekend.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a fast rider, nor am i a professional producer/editor of videos or computer nerd!!!! So just take that for what its worth.

Apparently i have an issue with my video editor and Vista w/ AVI files, so it would not import the sound from the track........so i put in music for your listening pleasure, sorry. Also the video will seem abit "glitchy" in some spots, it was weirding out, not the cameras fault.


So, just an idea for those wondering what different angles and perspectives would look like with this product should you choose to use it at your race or trackday.

lol, im not that chessey to try and look fast. I didnt speed up any of the video, i think its a combo of things possibly, but i will say i think mostly b/c of the wide angle. The wide angle sure makes things look fast to me.......and knows what all happened with the video between the Vista problems and having to compress the video down for Youtube. The video is pretty "raw" for sure.

oh nah, not tryin to imply you wre tryin to look fast. i just noticed that it looked more normal in some places than others. maybe in the process the frames per sec got a lil different. or maybe it is just the wide angle view. looks good though. i think i was out there with ya on Saturday. i remember ur leathers at one point i think. i rode about half the day in level 2 and then the rest in 4, until i ate it.

brian, i def. would like for you to catch up with me on friday, i see just a couple of minor tweaks that we can make to help you out in the comfort zone but you're looking great as far body position, some of the lines we can tighten up on.

That would be awesome, i will make sure to look for ya. You pit any certain area usually?? Red and white leathers, and mostly red kawasaki 636, correct??

And thanks for the good feedback guys. I will try and get some additional footage this weekend, and some different views.
