A friend of mine has this one Amazon
The price is very nice and the quality was definately watchable  ;D
As far as i know it is a GoPro clone made in china so all the GoPro holders will fit with this one.

Thanks guys, I also think it is nice to see some footage from actual GPbikes players!

Circuit was Eurospeedway Lausitzring ;)

Thanks, the track is called Folembray in northern France (great track) and yes the bike is a Daytona 675. I was quicker through the corners than 2 other Ducati 1198 (my dad and a friend, both only their second trackday) only really losing them up the straights, the fastest bike on the track was a Daytona 675 but it was race spec.

Ahh french, okay. But it seemd fun non the less   :D
I know the feeling of being faster in corners and then to wave farewell on the straights till the next bend comes  ;D
But seriously I think with a bit of practice you'll be faster than bigger bikes there, this track seems to rely on corner speed so perfect playground for a Daytona :)

Totally like trackday footage!

Nice riding for a first time mate, very hard track to begin it seems.
I am guessing a british track, bike is a Daytona, right?
As much as people like to have big bikes, a 600cc is the perfect tool to get fast on the track  ;)

I also noticed the guy with one arm, pretty impressive what some people can do!

Been on track since last year and finally can ride with a little confidence :D
Rode with an instructor who filmed me, I am the R6 in front :)

I am sorry but I can't participate this sunday, propably won't be home at race time  :'(
how were the brakes better in beta3?  :o


I tried you latest version and I don't think thats an improvement. When trying to load the rear it spins, or really takes some time till ready. My guess thats about 4 sec. slower on average than standard and since the grip transition is still very sudden you don't tend to have more slides but actually less. Well less successfull slides and more crashes  ;D
I noticed that the best slides I had were all with groove. Thats not just with the Varese but any bike. Did somebody else notice this effect?
Okay it took me a while to do some small slides, haven't toutched the Varese in a while and this bike isn't really easy to ride.

I was about to go wide and safed it with a little slide

Found an old Replay in Paul Ricard doing some small slides at the fast right hander after the back straight, but after seeing this tiny vid took already an eternity to upload I suspended the thought of uploading another vid for now.

The thing is, you are either on full lean angle having some small slides or aim for a bigger slide at less lean angle. Problem is you need exact lean angel and throttle here or you are losing the rear one way or another. Perfect throttle, not enough lean and you either wheelie or have some straight slide. Perfect throttle and too much lean and you of course low side. Too much throttel and no matter the variaton, you hit the dirt. So it boils down to a lot of training. In the time I used the 500cc frequently it was possible to do that, but happened rarely. You don't provoke it, it just happens.

And from what you guys say even back in the day they weren't all sliding around, just the top guys doing it. If you practice in GPBikes you will be able to do it too so I think thats pretty spot on  :P
But that is only my opionion...

I will try your bike none the less hawk and see how it does.
hehe  ;)
Just asking, but do you guys powerslide with an unloaded rear or an overloaded one? Because when I push hard with the 500cc on a fully loaded rear I tend to have some very nice slides.
If I accelerate with an unloaded rear too hard I am immeditely down, so I actually think the standard physics are pretty decent from what I have seen and heard of the 500cc.

Loop has a nice and very stable setup for the GP250, ask him or me if you see us online.

We can provide you with it so you have a good time while riding  ;)

I was thinking the same as Beuker, didn't notice the apostrophe  :o

Well played Max, well played...
RIP Gixxer

I am pretty sure though he said prior to his death that I could have his Panigale in case something happens to him....

Your bike is awesome guys! I totally love it, from what I head it doesn't seem overpowerd to me. Don't get the problems some guys have. Normally I hate those little bikes because they are so easy to ride you have to push the hell out of them to get some good times. But compared to the 125cc it is quite stable even under heavy load.

TC and AW? you sure guys? I don't even get the bike to make a wheelie, even less have the rear slip away...
You actually have homework in University?  :o

Guess i choose the right place to study since I have random and totally rarely homework :P

Nice, I don't think it was bad, you could have been a little faster yes but the lap was pretty decent  ;)

Sad to hear that, I appreciate what you did here and want to thank you for everything.

Hope to see you again  ;)
