That was painful to watch. Why do people insist on putting music in their videos? I don't the S1000 went over 40MPH. Way too much bike traffic for it to be enjoyable.

Thanks for the comment. This was Professional Development Workshop for motorcycle instructors. I agree using a Go-Kart track is the dumbest idea ever but I have no say so in this.

It would be fun without the traffic.

Another vote for banning music in videos.

kart tracks can be fun on some bikes, but not a fan of them on big bikes.

there are even some kart tracks that're tight enough that I don't really enjoy them on my 450 supermoto.

Why???

I rode on a go-kart track in CO twice (the only times I'd ever actually been on track, sadly...), and it was a mile long track. On my old '01 Gixxer 1000 I could just crack 100mph before having to brake hard for the turn, and while it really wasn't a track suited for a literbike, it wasn't anywhere near as slow as the video shown. That didn't look like any fun at all...

I didn't find the music too bad and at least it was somewhat subtle, the ones I hate are with all the techno/EDM crap, especially recorded at loud volumes. Blech...

I once took a ZX6R636 on the Musselman track near Tucson for a track night. Track was very slick and polished and we were going fast. Riding that track was a lot of work! My rear tire did a lot of sliding in the turns. I was exhausted after a couple of hours of doing that. They also had dirt piled on for the supermoto guys. I looked like they had fun too.

If you give time and enough training things can be really really fun. I am training in a smaller track than the one in the video. Max speed is 122km/h but it is so much fun and you can learn a lot without risking too much.

Here is a video of a friend of mine some years a go
