Pics from coaching at Talladega last weekend with STT

Even got to work with a couple of fellow Duc owners. Hypermotard and 848 corse. Both beautiful bikes.

he's a control rider/coach. They will usually wear a vest or t shirt in a bright color over their leathers to identify them to track day participants.

Any tips on how to ride the Hypermotard quickly? I just bought a '13 SP a couple of weeks ago, and am trying to figure out body position for quick riding. After 25+ years on sport bikes it seems a little different to hustle down a twisty road lol

The orgs here are all over the place with colors..

First pic hi vis was my first track day omg thar BP is horrible.

Second is different or I took instruction and they gave me blue vest.

Third pic no class, but that blue vest is a control rider or martial.

My last instruction my coach had purple vest.

I use three different orgs they all do it different, including corner flags which drives me nuts.

Im a coach for sportbike track time, we wear orange vests so the students can identify us.
The hyper is a great bike. I would suggest getting your suspension set up professionally 1st before you purchase any other mods. Once that is done, spend as much time as possible getting seat time in at the track. Literally the best money you can spend if you want to get faster.

thanks, but it's not my only bike. I have a dedicated track bike (former WERA racer) a supermoto street bike and a 848EVO for street & an occasional track day. Hypers suspension is good, but after 25+ years of sport bikes I'm trying to figure out how to get fully comfortable on the Hyper when riding at a above the posted limit pace.

Mine seems to respond well to being ridden like a dirt bike. Brake late, chuck it on it's side then fire it out. Completely different style to riding my 1098.
