D superbike ex at the GNF He also has other DSB vids posted up. I hope he gets a Barber vid up this year. The gap between DSB am and ex is typically pretty big. I need some study material to learn how to close it.

lol, I was actually admiring his friends control. I'm usually like the guy on the tard, late breaking and forcing myself into stuff passes. Like I said, it was kewl to see everyone play so well and so close together for so long. Usually someone gets freaked out and backs off, but they all kept doing it and doing it and doing it again.

it was clear the tard had way more corner speed all the way to the apex but was getting killed in the straights. I bet those guys were having a blast.

kinda like racing 600's in unlimited class endurance races...
it's compensating for giving up topend on the straights, but it's fun.

Everytime he'd make a pass, I thought to myself, this guy is fucking annoying
