parkway bridge

knybanjo, sounded like you were polishing some rust off your footpegs in that video. That is one of my favorites to get onto the parkway. I like to go north on the parkway and pick up 226 in little switserland and drop back down grab 221-A back up again. heck of a loop with all the twisties you will want for a good day ride. I also noticed you were trying to stay ahead of an fz-1 too. that is a tall order in itself. as you know I got one and It is the best bike I have ever owned, and I have had a bunch in my 50 years of riding.here is my baby.

Here I was trying to keep up with that FZ1...still on 80 but headed up through Bandana....




It's old, low and fat...doesn't take much to grind the boards.

rt 80 vidoes

looks to me like you were holding your own. what kind of camera and how,where did you have it mounted? those were some of the best vidoes I have seen shot in a while. would like to hook up and ride some time. I ride almost every weekend somewhere, most week days too.

Looks like a beautiful weekend for riding. I'm fighting a really bad cold or I would have already grabbed the tag. I hope you guys get out and enjoy the great weather this weekend and think of me cooped up indoors feeling like crap.

Thanks...it was just a plain old digital point and shoot set on video mode. A small piece of pvc was zip tied to the crash bar and the camera was just on a min-pod that had a leg dropped into the pvc and held in with a bungie. I tried several positions including handlebars and looking rearward from the trunk.....have not videoed in a long time and don't think I've ever tried it from the Strom......

It'd be great to meet you and ride sometime, I'm currently working weekends and off Tue-Wed.

I'm very disappointed no one grabbed this today. It was hard not to jump on a bike and head that way but I had to take it easy today. I hate being sick.

rt80 tag

If one of you hillbillys don't git this thang soon you'll have to have studded knobbys to get to it. It's up over 4000 ft and there is a storm brewing for de first of de week. Might have to send one of the foothill boyz up to grab it for it's too late.
