Fastest motorcycle lap of the 'ring

OK, after watching this, I've decided that I know NOTHING about riding a motorcycle.

As enjoyable as the riding was to watch, the included instrumentation was impressive, too. A tachometer and gear indicator would have been nice additions, but who's complaining?

Insane fast for sure. Someone posted this on the Hayabusa forum I am on and I had never seen this particular perspective/view before. Thought I would shard...

Very nice.

What is the second gauge from the left, on the bottom - the one with the red dot bouncing around? It seems like it reflects the forces on the rider - the ball bounces left when he takes a right-hand curve, for example.

Looks to be a CG (Center of Gravity) indicator. Reflects the effects of acceleration, braking and side-load forces on the bike.
