FWIW, you're lapping way faster than I do out there.
Ohhhhh tape! Great idea! My buddy clued me in on shoving a folded piece of paper in the gap but I like the tape idea. Trying that next time.

I finally just stuck a sticky mount on the tail because it pretty much eliminates all vibrations.

Yeah, Chuckwalla is a lot of longer medium speed turns. Stupid super wide-angle action cam video does not capture the trickiness of the elevation changes at all though.

You need to use the clip mounts, with no other attachments if you want to get video that's even vaguely stable on a motorcycle. Suction cup, or adding extra arms always shakes like crazy for me.

Re: Track Video

I stuck one of the mounts to the seat cowling since its a crappy eBay model...I run safety wire under the seat as well. The last trip out, I didn't have any of the extension on it either, kept it nice and still.
My buddy runs about 5 full seconds faster than me...he moved up a level on the last 2 track days. I'm still at lvl2
There are 2 double apex turns for sure and a left left, or right right depending on direction that I remember. You can single the two by sweeping out a little, that keeps the momentum up on our 6's, but the other, you still have to run as two apex
