Be careful man I don't even go that fast on a 4 lane highway in the middle of the summer. For all you know there is a patch of black ice around that next corner. Be careful.

Sorry but you're asking for death.

1) You're tires arent warmed up and it's definitely going to take a long time to warm up especially during that weather

2) Hit that double yellow line or a tar snake, and watch your tires slip

Nothing about that vid is cool.

it was a fun time. fingers didn't get cold until the last five minutes of the ride. as long as I've been riding I know the conditions all too well to know what the bike and/or I are able to do. I wasn't even pushing it. not once. now if I didn't have bald tires on front and rear I might have. I was happy enough being able to ride and wasn't feeling like backing it in nor out on them nice gravel infested roads.

lol...

My advice to anyone that would try and ride that fast on these roads would be NOT to if you haven't put on hundreds and hundreds of miles on the same ones like I have to know where each crack, buckle, dip, pot hole, man the llist goes on and on..
it's my turf. I know what I'm dealing with.
And I purposely hit the double yellows at times just to get a two wheel slide out of it.
cold tires = more fun for me

not to mention these modern day sportbikes are lightyears ahead in handling and stability compared to the old 70's 80's and 90's bikes I used to rail the piss out of.

ohh, it's a sportbike.com cam mount. check out my THREAD on my forum.


nutz, these roads don't have much on the roads up near you, just head out to Plymouth and go south on 67 or kettle morain scenic drive and head south. Awesome sweeps and twisties up there compared to jefferson county, unless yer hittin up the south kettles, then there's some wicked stuff too.

Nice Video! Makes me wish I could have been with you. This back injury crap sucks.

The cam brackets from www.sportbikecam.com are awesome, and they are available through Superbike Supply too.

yeah, they were fairly sad wheelies but would you like to go place some hangtime in 36 degree weather and a 20mph cross wind in triple digits? boredracer was right with the bike would need a speedo healer to be accurate after my gearing changes. it's way off so I just give vehicles in front of me a nice space cusion and use them for rating my speed, or use my gps if needed be.

resus has a vid with some fair wheelies in it all backed with motley crue tunes. there's some semi weak ones in that.

so resus, you like the lil happy new year burnout in front of your place? hehehehe

Happy New Year bro. hope it pissed of that lawn nazi across the street from you. :D
