Is "MirageGp' a WD?
Awesome riding

Looks like a typical Class C rider on the Paningale against one of the BMW Riding Academy Instructors on a track with no straight (Swartkops).

Bmw by no means experienced, strange lines into corners
Not even trying to vaguely find the apexes
Duc rider was not even paying any attention. This BMW is the sort of rider on a track you try and avoid at all cost.

Nice video to look at but does not say much about the bikes or riders.

Even I have some footage of passing a Aprilia RSV4 Factory on Kayalami. And that on a 2005 R1200GS.
Does that make me a riding god??? NO... Mainly because I binned the bike a couple of laps later.
Riding group B was stupid of me. Thank you for insurance.

It looks like one of those track training sessions at Swartkops. I have attended one.
In our case the instructor rode a 700 GS and we could not even keep up with the 1200's

You will see that they only overtake on the straights , except the instructor. Sometimes he will overtake on the outside if it is safe to do so.

That is one of the reasons for the strange lines , they have to take the slower guys into consideration.

That guy on the Ducati is not a novice ...!!

The BMW rider was trying with strange lines to overtake the Duc not other riders

I agree, and the little papertag on the BMW key i think confirms this. Not his bike so he can ride the shit out of it with no worries about future repairs

It was at Swartkops, BMW dealer track day. No overtaking on the inside or "racing"allowed. It was my test ride, I ride superbikes or sports/touring bikes normally although I have LC GSA now and still not sure if it's the right bike for me. Panigale rider is my mate Ricky. Idea was to make a video of him riding...if one is paying attention to the video you can see many instances where I closed off the throttle and even braked, waiting for him to bring the bike back. So we were basically playing around, idea was to get as much video as possible with him being on my right hand side because this is the spot where camera was mounted. Regarding lines, I think posters above know very little about Swartkops, specially table top part, where you have to do late apex to set yourself up for the left hander. Our pace was 5 seconds off regional back pack, on stock tyres and in my case touring jacket and gloves. For couch commentators, I would like to offer and invite to next track day in February, so they can demonstrate their pace and lines.

Go onto YouTube and you will see lots of "Mirages" rides.

There are plenty more videos coming, I have an epic ride of RT there, ground the pegs off and it was drizzling a bit.

Mirage, welcome to WD and the endless supply of experts on every subject imaginable...... ;-)

I enjoy your videos on Youtube, stumbled across them when I bought my K1600GTL and watched you taking one out on track.

Thanks mate :-)
Have look, there is a video of K1600GT where I had to shave off from 240km/h on Bekker School road as truck was turning into a farm road. How awesome is that straight six engine ?

It's fantastic! Sold mine to get the GSA LC, but really missing that primal scream from the straight six!

I may sound like a groupie, but I've watched all your Youtube stuff..... ;-)

I have GSA as well, missing the speed... My best mate rides K1600GT, we are going to ET on Monday, there will be some action videos coming from that trip :-)

I'm glad that you like the channel, there will be some exciting changes next year.

I live in Nelspruit and know most of twisties like the back of my hand. I "feel" faster on the GSA through twisties than I did on GTL??
