I tried to keep a good distance from him to get some good footage, it is actually hard to try to film someone on the track. There were times he would just take off and leave me, especially on the straights, damn Ducati's..:p I sure hope you like it ducbill.:D

nice footage derik!:D the bike was feelin pretty good after the susp. tweaks...hard to believe that bike is rated at 113 crank horsepoer isn't it!? first session of the day i thought i was gonna crash in every corner no matter how slow i went! dave moss from catylyst reaction got it sorted as best he could but he said the rear spring was too soft and tightening the preload was just a band-aid...:rolleyes: that triangle on your windscreen really messes with the footage... if you show up onthe 18th bring your camera and we'll try mounting it on the 996... thanks for making me a movie star! i guess that was my 15 minutes of fame huh?:)

Same here, once I got my suspension redone by my boy Scott, it was a way better day.. I need to put the stock windscreen back on for better videos.:D

Derek, Let me first say that I love the vid and really like your lines, especially when entering most corners.

Derik, wth the cam on your tank, can you go into a full tuck?

I have the sportsbikecam mount and it gets in the way when I'm trying to tuck going down the straight.

I have hit the chin of my helmet with it a couple times but really no issue. I am a big guy so full tuck for me probaly isn't as low as others.:cool:
