Mystery rider hot lap on AMA superbike
Here's a YouTube R1 video featuring the Team RidersDiscount.com YZF-R1 Superbike. The RidersDiscount.com Yamaha YZF-R1 was built to AMA Superbike specifications using the best aftermarket Yamaha parts and accessories available from Riders Discount. No aspect of the RidersDiscount.com R1 was overlooked: from the Ariete 90° valve stems to the Yamaha's crossplane engine and even the SharkSkinz bodywork was modified to make it a potent track weapon. The only thing that stopped us from taking it even further was AMA Superbike rulebook!
In this Yamaha R1 YouTube video, the RD R1 Yamaha does some laps at Gingerman Raceway while evaluating some different R1 suspension setup and R1 engine characteristics. The Yamaha is piloted by RD's own talented mystery rider who is seen here sliding the bike into, and out of -- just about every corner at Gingerman Raceway. When he's not spinning it up or backing it in, he's busy wheeling the bike ... everywhere.
So, why do we have a mystery rider? At RidersDiscount.com, we buy, build and race our own bikes to better understand what products work and what's not worth putting on YOUR bike. And we do it all at our headquarters in Western Michigan, so we can bolt the parts on and try them out as soon as they become available.
