Yip cant argue with your point ! and to be honest you have only watched a fraction of the 7 hours of riding and there would be a few more errors in that footage. there were 7 riders on this ride all in my opinion very experienced and like minded riders (Makes a good dynamic). At each stop or quick break you should hear the chatter, we all give each other a rap over the knuckles if we have seen another cross the centre line or take a bend too wide or do a maneuver which is deemed too risky. When we ride our aim is to feel that perfect symmetry with your bike :smile2: I usually have a USB stick the next day of warts and all footage for all riders. I know it helps to be a safer rider if you can watch yourself making a mistake and work out how yo9u could and would avoid it next time. (crazy dare devils are banned from our rides) ThanksRhino-
You guys be careful riding. The BMW rider in front went into ongoing traffic lane several feet. Also saw you ride in ongoing traffic at 4:31 and 4:51. You also passed on a double line through a turn at 5:00. The Hayabusa rider was within a couple of feet from a car on one turn.
This was a little scary to watch.
Yip I need to update my Avatar the one in the photo was the bike I test rode, I have a white one. the guy on the BMW bought it last week that was his first ride on the bike and had never been on this stretch of road which I consider to be very challenging, some negative camber thrown in. but as well cant argue with your comment. I let him know tomorrow that a guy on the Ducati forum said you should improve your left hand corners >
Nice video @Rhino, it's subtropical in the south east UK today +4C with a wind chill of -2C. Good to see you had your wise head on with the road conditions, why was there so much debris on the twisties? You said they are normally great roads.
yeah if I think about it it was almost full and was topping up. Sometimes I got to take fuel when its there or wont make it to the next stop.Nice ride! Have been reading how hot it’s been there. Hotest on record?
Regarding fuel gauge, was the tank nearly full, then did you top it off before the gauge got stuck?
I had a similar problem that occurred a couple of times but seemed to only occur when I topped off an almost full tank before an extended ride that I mentioned in a post about 4 months ago. It was also very hot, btw. And it also cleared itself with the next tank fill.
lol there were a lot more twisties but I didn't want to add an hour of video as it gets tedious. unfortunately I also live far from the mountains and that's why its an 11 hour round trip. would have been good to get a road report before we went as some of those roads were almost unrideable with debris.Rhino, I'm disappointed in you...you really should cross the yellow line more.
Phat riding, brother. I'm regretting I didn't take the assignment in Australia a few years back. There were more twisties in your 14 minutes of video than Florida has in the entire state.
Brrr I don't miss the uk weather. it is queensland summer here and that means storms and storms mean loads of wind and wash off from the banks, it usualy leads to leaves, branches, trees, mud, rocks etc on the roads. sometimes you can come around a corner and part of the road has disappeared :surprise: A lot of the time we ride up and then back the same route but this time was all new roads so didn't know what was ahead. Last year I slide out on those conditions and wrote my bike off not planning on doing that again.
Sounds like the Ribble Valley I was riding in on Saturday for 3 hours.Brrr I don't miss the uk weather. it is queensland summer here and that means storms and storms mean loads of wind and wash off from the banks, it usualy leads to leaves, branches, trees, mud, rocks etc on the roads. sometimes you can come around a corner and part of the road has disappeared :surprise: A lot of the time we ride up and then back the same route but this time was all new roads so didn't know what was ahead.
