Video MSR L2 session 4? on the 2 stroker

Good bad and ugly. One almost ban from Ride Smart at 7 minutes. Was going to go under him but have had riders turn in on me so decided late turn in. Had no idea they were stopping at that point. Another parked at 6 minutes. Was gun shy pretty much all day. Not enough power to get by on straights and do not like late passes knowing what almost happened. A few 2:02s in traffic so it was ok. Too many red flags and I almost caused one.

My buddy Jason said same thing. At MSR it might be best thing. I am worried at COTA because of my sweeping lines. Steve Ned worked with me in TY,s class and was the one that brought it up. I need to clean up my lines at MSR. Had meniscus removed 4 month ago and was getting sore at end of day so was not moving as well on bike.

I guess I need to get an instructor out with me so I can be evaluated. I am glad you guys agree about the parking. I thought I was ok with outside line but had no idea he had slowed so much. That is a pretty fast entry into that corner. Maybe he was looking for the X.

Nice video thanks for posting.

I've had exact same thing at same spot. Also at end of back straight heading into diamonds edge is another but only time I've came close to tagging someone was just like in your video heading into the carosel. Good news is plenty of space out there wide to use in case needed.

I enjoyed following you around and getting to smell and hear that twostroke. Looking good out there

I'm also member of the 'almost banned' club in that exact same spot. I'm on a 300c so I can't afford to lose momentum going into that turn, once the throttle is open on the back straight it pretty much stays open all the way around carousel, quick down shift at Joe Bone, then WFO again for front straight. This is why I never follow directly behind a rider, always a few feet left or right. If there wasn't extra curbing there it could have ended badly..

Skip to minute 6:05 and also 6:56 for two almost rear-ending incidents:

I didn't see anyone turn under you? Looks like target fixation from watching the video around 7:40. You drifted from left to right directly into the other riders line. Yes he parked it, but never changed his line on the straight ever! Your video shows you coming in on him and would have been your fault if you hit him for sure. It's always the passing rider to make the safe pass and 6' rule was not taken into consideration either. If you would have held your line you would have been fine. Ridesmart isn't a race, it's a school for learning. I know the the need to run consistent lap times and keep your own pace, but in lvl 2 you have new level 1 to 2 riders, and guys like yourself that are more experienced and on the brink of lvl 3 that are fast riders. The mix of riders requires a sharp eye and sometimes you have to back off and wait it out. That could have been bad!
