R6 vs SuperHawk @ Barber (Round 2)
Highlights of video below... X-Act Trackday on 6/30/12 Playing with Clint - the "other" fast guy in Intermediate group on his Honda VTR1000F SuperHawk for the 2nd time. He got the best of me this time. Moral of the story... There's always someone faster than you - and sometimes they are on an older model sport touring bike! Weather was 107 degrees and track temps were 120. I ended up getting sick later that day due to having no electrolytes. Drank plenty of fluids, just too hot! Dunlop 211's stuck like glue but started to get somewhat slick and slide a bit during heat of the day. Right side is toast now. @ 1:10 - first lap & navigating traffic safely / @ 4:52 - I wait for Clint to come through traffic and lead / @ 10:20 - he returns the gesture when he turns to see where I am / @ 10:55 - he takes inside line into turn 5 while I take outside. Good times... By the final lap I started to get nauseated and tired so I slowed down before I wadded it up.
