Going Off Track (Short Film)

Here's a short film that tells the story about my weekend at Barber Motorsports park. Crashed my bike, but had a great time checking out the facility on my down time. Hope you enjoy the show!!!

My favorite part about making this video was researching the Britten. I vaguely knew everything I said before hand from reading about it when I was a kid but it was way too important to me to just wing it, so I did some research that made my jaw drop.

I saw it for the first time at "Vintage Fest" held at Barber a few years ago. 5 out of 10 in existence were on the track at the same time. Mrs Britten looked right at me filming her on her parade lap with George Barber. She doubled over with excitement and gave me a thumbs up.

Don't limit yourself to your false perseption of what you're capable of and just do what you dream. It's easier than you can immagine.

Well, that thing ain't so much a video as it is a freakin' documentary! Holy cow.

The editing on that was solid. As was the music selection and voice-over narration. I could've done with a bit less with all the cool preamble stuff and a bit more of the track-related stuff in order to cut the 19min run-time down a bit. But that's just me. Considering the fact that you're riding a GSXR and wadded it up on the Gixxer-Grater area, at least you have a bright future in the movie production role!

Good job and well worth my time to watch it all! The track is on my Bucket List for sure!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

How are you doing now ? Loved the documentary style, especially the voiceover on the track - thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hope you didn't get too banged up on your crash.

Any idea's on what caused it? Looks like the slight getting off of the throttle maybe?

Nice video editing too

Thanks and glad you enjoyed it. Barber is an amazing place. Move it from your bucket list to your calendar. ;)

Bike is mostly back in order now. Had to repair some parts, make some parts and paint some parts. Down to body work now.
My hand had 3 broken bones and 2 fractures. It's well on the way to healed. I was able to pull in the clutch the other day. I have an event I'm coaching at in 2 weeks, so hopefully I'll be all set by then.

Glad you liked it. I think I'll do more in the future. Guess I should get a microphone instead of using the one built into my laptop.

Thanks for the thumbs.
As for the cause of the crash, I was just asking for more than the tires could give. I usually use slicks, but was short on cash and all my takeoffs only have about a day left in them. When my buddy offered me the tires he'd taken off Punt's Ducati, I was like "Yeah I'll burn these flat spotted squid hoops up." lol

Then I got caught up in the moment and totally forgot I had considerably less traction than I'm accustomed to. They hadn't slipped once up to that point, so I didn't really know what I had to work with. I really wanted to sneak past that guy at the end of the straight following the chicane I crashed in. You get a little light where the track levels off right where I crashed. I was just trying to add in too much speed too fast learning a new track.
