Hayden & Bostrom Test at Homestead Miami Speedway Michael Jordga Motorsports 635x422

The start 2012 AMA Pro Road Racing series is almost upon us, and the folks at Michael Jordan Motorsports are rapidly gearing up for the new season. Traveling down to the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida, MJM riders Ben Bostrom and Roger Lee Hayden took their Suzuki GSX-R1000 race bikes around newly added track for the first time. While Bostrom and Hayden won’t have to race at Homestead-Miami until September 23rd, the season-opener at Daytona, Florida is rapidly approaching and only two and half months away.

Shooting the Homestead-Miami Speedway test with some on-board cameras, the Michael Jordan Motorsports team has put together a great three minute clip that stars Bostrom’s boot, among other things. Joking aside, the video is well-put together (a rarity in the AMA paddock), and has some great shots of Bostrom’s shifting and knee-slidding around the Floridian track. Look for #23 on the Jordan Suzuki, while Roger Lee will again represent the men and women of the Army National Guard on the #54 bike.

    Great Vid clip. Is it just me, or does it look like their’s a fair bit of flex in those rearsets? Is that normal? Definitely something I’ve never noticed before/on other vids… Hmmmm

    @ Kurt
    The camera is mounted on the swingarm m8 hence giving u the impression that it’s moving but infact the swingarm is moving….hope this helps

    Yes the swingarm is moving, yes the rearsets are flexing.
    Personally I don’t like vortex rearsets for this very reason. Vortex makes their rearsets very light which is great for saving weight, but personally I prefer to add a few extra grams for a more solid mount, and then get a better feel for what the bike is doing.
    But that’s just me.
