Track day on the MV

Here is another attempt at making a video of my 2nd track day. I had a great time and I can't wait to go again. I like that I'm seeing improvement all the while have the time of my life. Enjoy.

Thanks guys for the positive feedback. I've got a lot to learn, but it sure is fun.

onesickpsycho, I'll try to get some more boobies in the next video. Just for you.

Make sure you write OSP on at least one of them...

Looks like a nice track. Form looks good, other than your feet. You drag your toes at all? They should be back and up more on the pegs. Kinda like this.



My heel is usually up against the heel guard, where it should be, but I was trying different stuff to make my knee slider wear evenly. I think it's the suit though. This was my second track day too. On my third track day, I had the pilot Races on so i had a better lean angle. I was actually scraping my toes, even though I had them positioned like this. So I now know when I scrape my toes, I'm geting close to the lean limit. What kind of tires were you rockin'?

DLIT, yes, I did scrape the toe guard pretty bad. One of the instructors told me the same thing. Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it and I'll work on it.

OSP & B12, I'll do what I can, but you two are trying hard to get me in to some trouble.

Do they offer beginner track days or instructions at many tracks?

nice vid. don't worry too much about correct form or sloppy throttle. that will come with more experience.

it kinda scares me to see nice bikes like yours on the track. i usually put disposable bikes on the track (so as not to worry about totalling it).

when one doesn't worry about destroying their bike, then they are free to find the bike's potential.

I like to relaxe and feel comfortable through the turns.



chop your foot pegs and a little duct tape will keep from losing toe pucks..

wow awesome bike...

I have seen Aprila's, Ducuti's, BMW's, several vintage bikes etc on the track, but never a MV

Yea toe dragging is bad....It only took once for me to learn .

Track Days are addicting

Thanks. I was gonna get my racers license, but I came to korea instead. I would definately be in the middle/back of the group.

Most tracks do. It all depends who sponsors the day. Some have a basic school, which is free, and some have some you pay for. It all depends on the sponsor of the track day.
