    on swingarm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueIgRclyrrA
    on helmet 1 (2 laps): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGAcu5oTEOo
    on helmet 2 (2 laps): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM64o4WT0dU
    on helmet 3 (almost 2 laps)... with crash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPWq7-7jbCw

    it's not a nice crash, nothing spectacular, just ran out of brakes (that's why I also busted turn 3 in the same lap)

    going back 2 days next week and this time I have new pads, fluid and braided lines!

    there is no clean lap, all had a bit of trafic, times go between 2:19 and 2:30 I think

    nice riding.. I saw a video of a guy in a busa riding for 25 minutes at speed of 125 to 160 miles per hour, man this guy was flying around turns in the hwy. at the end of the video he ended crashing going around a turn while doing like 30 mph...

    ive always thoguht it would make more sense to upshift by clicking the shifter down. why do gp racers have it like that but not street bikes from the factory?

    indeed the last lap was giving me clues I'd run out of brakes and I indeed did. Now I got my bike back with all new fron brakes and it should be ok tomorrow and wednesday (back at T-Hill)

    I don't know why bikes are not GP from the factory, they should all be in my opinion
