Im quite happy with the result. I have to give most of the credit to the bike - there were a lot of times when I was just holding the throttle open and trusting the steering damper!

I happen to have one
Only used it a couple times. Kindof a hassle for me, and I don't have the vid editing skills to make the output worthwhile. You are welcome to it.

p.s. Good on ya for not listening to the naysayers. That pig is a great bike! If you get serious about the dez racin, I would look into having the suspension done to suit you. I imagine its getting a bit tired after hauling big guys around for 10yrs.

awesome! That would be great to get my second race on video - then it might actually be interesting to watch.




I think if I actually get serious , Ill get a Honda 450....



...and I would be happy to help you out with any of the video editing stuff anytime - just say the word.

oh, and who would you recommend for the suspension work?

congratulations! And remember, after gas and entry fees, the best money you'll ever spend racing is on suspension .

Congratulations!!! See, folks that said the XR-R would geterdone were on the $$$$.

Looks like your only race prep for the bike was protecting the headlight, hell since it's plated you might as well ride to the next event!
