    Video #3: Lap around following same bike all the way (~4:01 laptime)

    The bike I was following (Gixxer 750) was quite slower than me in two parts of the track... in the esses after the straight (you can clearly see the difference between my video alone and behind him.. and also how much I brake when following) and also the right hander after the downhill turn and before the "bowl". Those two were fast turns and maybe the rider felt less comfortable in this situation. On the rest of the track he was about same pace as me.

    The camera was installed on my tank (not a bulletcam, the camcorder itself) with duct tape. The result is pretty good IMO...

    Enjoy!

    I was just at Reno Fernley on the 3rd and 4th of June. It looks like we ran the same track configuration as you (outside track). When I went out for my sighting laps I was freaked out cuz the track was so damn big, I thought I was gonna get lost. First day was spent learning the track and my times were in the 3:10 range. After working on things, I got times down to about 2:57.

    Doug Chandler was there and he was hitting sub 2:20 laps. :eek4:
