Carrying those four extra mph into Turn One, opening the throttle 20 or 30 feet sooner on the way out and pulling some 50 fewer pounds has Gobert arriving at Turn Two with nearly 12 more mph than Boehm. Look no further as to the reason why Gobert needs a quick tap of the brakes as he tosses the bike on its side, while Boehm simply shuts the throttle--eight to 10 feet sooner. Let that be a lesson: No coasting! That quick brake-stab puts Gobert at the entrance speed he wants, and as soon as he's leaned over, the throttle-position trace shows he's aggressively probing for how much grip the right side of the rear Dunlop has to give, maintaining a pretty constant speed all the way around until he sees the exit, and "carefully" getting to WOT. Wait...Gobert, careful? The exit of Turn Two is bumpy, goes off camber and you can't see the edge of the track you're aiming for; it's an excellent place to high-side [Burns knows this all too well!--Ed.]. At Gobert-speed, even on a 600, "Soon as I geton the throttle," he says, "it [the rear end] wants to come around. You always have to be ready for it."
