2012 AMA Superbike Prep Video

Here’s yet another unique view of a Michael Jordan Motorsports Suzuki GSX-R 1000 being piloted around a race track.

This latest video arrives from Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California; the Alpinestar’s boot viewed is MJM Suzuki’s Roger Lee Hayden, as the Kentuckian shifts gears in preparation for the 2012 AMA Superbike Championship, which begins March 15 at Daytona International Speedway.

Taking of the video, MJM Suzuki says “The camera being mounted on the swingarm makes it look like the rear set is moving when it’s actually the camera that is moving.”

Hayden finished his debut year with MJM Suzuki in sixth place overall with 202 points, making it to the podium twice (third at Mid-Ohio, third at New Jersey Motor Sports Park).

And for 2012 AMA Superbike, Roger Lee Hayden will once again pilot the National Guard Suzuki on the Michael Jordan Motorsports Team, the Kentuckian a teammate of Ben Bostrom (No. 23 MJM Suzuki GSX-R1000).
