Watched the video.... seems the rider on the RC51 is not familiar with the road... He does well in the short curves,,, Yet is not continuous on the throttle. When he could have been all over that aprilia... It just pulled away leaving the curves

Nice video find Swoop!
That led me to this one.
I tried to save the clip starting at 3:53.
Watch the guy on the SP2 - his slip and recovery at 4:00.
Lucky git, when I look at what could have happened...
But didn't

1971allchaos, I didn't know the first road. The Aprilia was about 4-5 secs in font and I closed the gap on him never mind the cars. The second road is one that I do know, and I was all over him, within a second the whole time. The Aprilia rider was a french guy that I meet about 30 min previous, great rider, got his number and will be thrashing with him again.

jondog9, That rear end stepped out a ton, good save...
