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.
Honda SP-1 VTR 1000
Final journey for my Honda SP-1 (VTR-1000) after travelling around Europe
on it in 2007. This beast of a v-twin proved that comfortable long runs
through Europe were possible. As good on a track day as on the twisty roads
The thrilling acceleration of the 1000cc power plant with a torque curve to
drill the eyeballs in to the back of your head. Do I miss it? Yes, without
Supplied by Crescent Motorcycles of Verwood. The official Suzuki British
Superbike team, MotoGP team and now World Superbike. It came with
super-rumbling loud pipes from Micron which were e-stamped some how.
Changed those to Leo Vince legal pipes to appease the neighbours.

of road.Sorry,no Wheelies,stoppies,or burn outs.Also no techno,rap,metal or
any other music.Just the bike.
VTR1000f Superhawk idle problem
This a clip of my 98 VTR acting up. It seems to have an issue with smooth
idling. the bike cuts out sporadically as if it wants to stall out. I have
noticed it happen very rarely while riding in the lower RPM's, it may in
fact be happening more often but perhaps it just might be going unnoticed
because of the engine speed or inertia etc. Any help in diagnosing the
situation would be greatly appreciated. Sometimes it does it as frewuently
as this video shows and then other times not at all... Once in a while it
sounds like there is a large backfire or something thru the airbox because
it can be felt thru the tank, but this is much more rare then the rest of
the events.Thanks for looking. !
SuperHawk with Affordable Danmoto GP style exhaust installed.
Before these I had Jardine RT-One high mounts that have seen better days
and needed to be repacked badly. I wanted my passenger pegs back, but I
also wanted nice sounding, nice looking Exhaust. I stumbled across DanMoto and for the
price they were worth a shot. So far so good... This video doesn't do the
sound of the Exhaust justice it's got
a much deeper tone than my phone could pick up.
Honda vtr 1000 vs Honda CBR 600

VTR1000 vs SV1000 messing about
First ride for my brother since he got out of hospital a couple of day
earlier from having a stroke. He dos'nt have full control of his left side
and is very week in his arm and leg. But you cant keep a keen man down so
we took this short ride just to test the water so to speak. Sorry the vid
quality is not what it should be ....... i squashed it dwn as small as i
could get it so it would'nt take to long to upload.
