    RSV4 Track Day & Ride Videos

    So the Tuono forum has their own Track day & Road Movies thread, however I feel like I'm intruding in their territory, why not have one in our sub forum!

    I'll start off with;

    My recent personal best at local track, fastest lap of 1:03.0 on lap 10.




    & then 2 brake testing incidents in the last 2 track days.

    1: Scary moment, yes!! Fireblade crashed in front of me at +200km/h



    2: totally over estimated the speed of the bike in front of the bike I overtook, my error. That gravel is deep lucky to stay up & get out.




    So let's get some vids happening.

    Lucky to save this one, had a faulty LH switch block, so no TC (or Speedo)

    rider just fine apart from a couple of bruises.
    Lucky for him I had enough control to not run over him, although in the moment I almost thought I was going to have to. Very close call, had me detuned for the rest of that day.

    His bike not so good, he sold the engine for $1k & the rest was scrap metal & plastic.

    You might get more of an idea with the slow motion replay version I just uploaded.

    Thanks for the info.. bike are replaceable, people aren't. That slow motion helps see show much more detail.

    That was his rear that locked up. A front locking up is not gonna leave a blackie like that. Or am I missing something?

    Point is, what the hell is he doing using that much rear? Glad he was ok for sure.

    Since i can't upload videos...I have this on video, front and rear cameras, a little over 100mph when he hit the deck... Dude was ok. I went to his pits waiting for the ambulance to drop him off.

    He took all the blame...he said my shadow (basically my front wheel) spooked him and he grabbed the front brake and hit me like clapping hands coming together. Not a mark, or scratch on my bike.

    I felt some responsibility because it was just a damn trackday. I came up on him so fast and there was 6'-8' between us before he essentially lowsided himself into me.

    I left his pits. The day was almost over, and i went back to his pits with $500 cash, my name and number, and told him i'd help him get his bike back together, leathers, helmet or whatever. He never did reach out to me.

    Here's a race back in 2014 on my RSV4 - WMRRA Formula Ultra class, which is the run what you brung class. I get about as close as you can come to a high side and still stay on the bike around 10:40 in the video. Track is the Ridge Motosports Park near (somewhat) Seattle.

    yeah it's a good puzzle that is for sure, however my memory of what I saw from my close up vantage point was that his front locked up & washed out to the right, that's what brought him down, so I opted for exit stage left expecting his bike to bounce off the wall & back on the track which it did, unfortunately he was sliding to the left as well almost blocking my path until the last moment when I got past him.
    His memory of what happened 10 minutes after the event back in the pits was that the front locked up, but it happened so fast he can't understand why it did.

    I think any tyre lock up is going to leave a black mark, however I can't understand how a front would lock up at that speed with that much weight transfer on it, in a straight line.
    If it was just a back lock up there is no way he would have gone down like that & surely not in the space of 1 second.
    Yeah actually less, as when I look at my lap timer frame by frame, it takes just under a second from when the black mark then smoke starts, to when he is on the ground, at which time I'm still doing 180 km/h, so he's sliding from that speed, then slowing at the same pace as me for ~4 seconds. It was scary as hell for both of us.

    I was wondering the same thing. I watched it a couple times and I’m pretty sure that was his rear that locked up.
