Cool On Track Videos?

In getting ready for this season, it would be great to see if any of you have either MotoVid or Quicktime or AVI files of the tracks that we will be riding on this year for NESBA Midwest.

Does anyone have any of their own that they would be willing to share or post up links to? Or... if you know of links to on-track videos on the web, we could use those.

Personally, I have only been to Autobahn, Putnam, RoadAtlanta, and Las Vegas Motor Speedway. So, I'd love to see Blackhawk, RoadAmerica, Grattan, Heartland, Mid-America and Gingerman. Or even study tapes and lines of the tracks that I have been to.

Anyone have anything they can post up or link to?

This is a WMV file I made from my MotoVid video from Blackhawk last year. This was my first time at Blackhawk and only my third day on this bike, so I'm trying to learn both at the same time.

Things I learned from my video:
  • Turning in too late for most of the turns (...it worked at Autobahn )
  • Couldn't pick a turn in point for turn-5...too early most of the time
  • I had the wrong gears to be able to get around the park/fly rider...you'll see

This is the full session with sound...about 20MB

stkr @ Blackhawk Farms 9-4-05

Don't laugh too hard...I'm still a beginner I had 4&6 Racing go over the bike and do some Computrack magic, so hopefully this year it will track better through the turns. Can't wait to see how it feels at Road America.

Blackhawk lap. Chills is the cameraman.

He did a good job until the last turn when he lost me.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

I forgot about that vid. Yeah, you walked right away from me and I had the big 9 in the red trying to catch up. I think I slowed too much for T7.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Let's not forget the 2 guys we gave a running start at the begining of it. We caught them in 1 lap. So Chris isn't that slow.

No, the bike was running fine. It just takes a bit for me to get up to speed. I also slowed too much for T7. Amazingly enough I pass most people out of the turns and not on the front straight.
