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.
how NOT to ride the dragon/ us129.RC51 blowing turns and riding over his head.
Here is a short run of Sid Mosley( helmet cam--r6s) following riding buddy
Andy Youngs on US HWY 129, DRAGON, Deals Gap. We catch up to a fella on an
RC51 riding way over his head and in my opinion was about to kill himself.
Play close attention to him wobbling and such. It was an extremely cold
day so traction was not great. I was scared to death i was going to watch
him pitch that beatiful RC51 in the trees. I hate to be a rude, but please
folks... ride within your limits and don't try to ride over your head. If
it would have been a summer day, this guy would have killed himself or
thanks for watching... riding season is almost here!!!!
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 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

super-rumbling loud pipes from Micron which were e-stamped some how.
Changed those to Leo Vince legal pipes to appease the neighbours.
'09 CBR600RR Gopro HD Hero 2 High Speed KESAS Highway
Gopro HD Hero 2 Test Recording. Subang Jaya - KESAS Highway. Morning
140112. Mounted on the tank using suction cup, its a bit high, have to find
better solution. I've test the camera position before riding and it was ok,
maybe the camera misaligned when I pushed the record button, should have
tighten the nut more. At high speed, wind from the double bubble pushed and
sucked my helmet down and hit the camera. Max speed 220kmh @ 3:45. As you
can see, there's no place safer than at the racetrack.
