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.

X-Act trackday on Saturday, 6/30/12 - 2nd session in morning
Playing with Clint - the "other" fast guy in Intermediate group riding his
Honda VTR1000F SuperHawk. Once he came by, it was game on!
@ 2:59 - SuperHawk comes into view on turn 2 as I go around a rider / @
4:04 - he stalks me up to... @ 6:44 - I correct my line and Clint beats me
into turn 5. @ 7:55 - you see his reflection in my mirror shield (cool
shot!) From then on I stalk him until @ 10:45 - when I get a good drive
out of 5 and pass on the inside going into museum corner on the finial lap.
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.
