Best track footage of Versys, peg scrapin' fun!

Found this on youtube, quite mind blowing footage. This guy takes all the big bikes in the corners with pegas scraping but loses out a little on the straights. Riveting viewing!

Great skills.

Yep, just realised that these have already been posted on this site, still, worth watching again.

Wont go as far as saying fantastic...

Rules vary by track day organizations. Most likely it was intermediate group where inside passing was allowed. Just a better rider on a slower bike in a group one down his/her level.

Same rider would of been owned in race group with 600's and 1K' on the track.

So, riders of similar skill level on significantly faster bikes would be faster....?

Missed my point entirely... Guy is riding in a wrong group. Been there, done that... This guy should quit sandbagging and go one group up.

I understand what you are saying but have been in that situation myself, if you go in the top group with guys on R1's, busua's, zx 10's etc that can ride you left a little behind on V so go in middle group with average riders with those bikes you and at least take em out on the corners.
