This resulted in me having to pretty much lie down in my chair to tuck in, and results in a nice view of the top yoke down the straights. Corner views are alright, and possibly a little better however. The reason I'm recording the top yoke (or triple clamp) is because as I've said I'm tucked low in my chair, but I'm also moving my eyes up the track, rather than my entire head, as one of the unique things about VR is the fact moving your eyes affects what you see as well as moving your entire head. There is a limit, and a little bit of screen door effect, as if you move your eyes too far you see the sides of the headset, but in a racing sim that's not too much of an issue as it sort of simulates a helmet. Overall the 500 is a hilarious hoot in VR, especially with L/R rider tracking, really have to work myself in my chair, which is a new sensation coming from the flat-screen MotoGP games.I am currently looking into why my paint scheme doesn't show up in VR, on the tank and fairing, yet it does on the seat unit and in the replays. I recommend a 500 2 stroke and spa for anyone with a VR headset and GB bikes license, as its awesome fun, and I wish someone would put a race championship up with these bikes, as that would be pure awesome-sauce.

Great video, enjoyed watching it. Thank you! PS: Is it my monitor settings or do some of the track textures look a bit weird and overpowering?
