Video Form Analysis - One time

Sorry.. Just playing with the title of the epic thread a bit...

Actually made it onto the track Sunday for the Autobahn South day..

My friend has been working on his form lately and I made a couple videos following him around for a session... Before anyone says he is slow.. He backed the speed off a bit to work on his form.

Yeah.. My lines were.. sweeping to say the least.. I wasn't pushing it and I was concentrating more on keeping the video right than outright speed...

So while anyone is free to critique my riding on this, that's not the point of this.. Wanted to post this up for my bud.. Eventually someone will get a camera pointed at my rear end as it ambles it's way around a track.. then it's fair game

I am actually going to post up the links to the videos so they can be annotated if any of the CR types want to point anything out.. Supergirl I know he worked with you last, he told me he was working on the things you gave him to work on... I did the video so he could see how it was coming along

oh yea... sorry about the big dark spot on the top left ... appears my camera killed a yellow jacket and it kind of... stuck around a bit.. right on the lens


link to annotate is here

(I grassed it in the end of this one after a stupid pass while chasing a grasshopper )


Thanks in advance.
Imagine I might have a couple of you guys on there as well.. Was an afternoon I session... I was the "sparky" guy on the SV

I thought you were riding quite well. If you would have looked through that corner you for sure would have made it.

I know
I was going nowhere near to fast for it.. even way wide like that...
but I came around and I caught what looked like a glimpse of that guy right there next to me.... I figured I had a better chance of grassing it and coming back on than banging into him.. I didn't want to take him down....

That plus I was a bit afraid to square the corner too hard.. I had been banging my pegs down through a # of corners not leaning over anywhere near what I thought was far... Even with the feelers off and the preload upped.. I was afraid squaring the corner too hard might put hard parts down in such a way that they'd be followed by other hard parts... and then crunchy parts

I have a rather sordid history with that corner... That wasn't the first.. or the second time I went through that lawn



I was actually hoping that this would be beneficial for my bud who I was following... Having someone tell you "get off more" is helpful.. but being able to see it and have them show you and point to (or in this case.. virtually point?) out different lines, braking, position.. etc... It was kind of the point of me following him around with the cam...

Not that I am trying to be Mr Instructor here - I know I have a looooong way to go and a lot to do before that's a possibility...

He isn't a frequent poster here, but he has been a member for a while... Figured I'd email him the thread if anything of substance came up...

So if you're bored.. Or perhaps Tea (as he was working the things she gave him to work on) --- It'd be pretty cool if you could comment here - or conversely.. even note up the video (i included the link that provides access to write directly on the video)

My buddy did that for my Dads videos at ACC N in his Lotus.. and he found it really helpful.. I can't wait to go back with him and try it again



btw - thanks for the compliment.. i was just trying to keep it smooth and rubbery side down.. being a street bike and all.. and trying to get my woman out there.. crashes would have extra consequences for me
