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!
Thanks and glad you enjoyed it. Barber is an amazing place. Move it from your bucket list to your calendar. ;)
Love that place, world class track.. the pic in my avatar is turn 14/15 I believe. Sorry to see you go down. The result of the crash looked pretty rough, how are you/the bike?
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.

I see K3 a couple times at year at STT events
That's awesome you know K3. Love that dude. He sure can tell a story. lol
How are you doing now ? Loved the documentary style, especially the voiceover on the track - thoroughly enjoyed it.
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.
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 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.
