Aux lights are a must....we found that out heading to Winthrop last summer in the dark too...plus, this summer even though it stayed light out for about 21 hours of the day in Alaska...the aux lights sure help with visibility. We will always have aux light no matter what bike. I use them everyday any time of day too.

As for the ABS...some swear that you should keep the ABS on roads like that...I swear by NOT having our ABS on ever on roads like that....to each their own.

This vid....Is nothing special....as compared with other fantabulistic vid's here.... But I wanted to show off my mic hack on my contour.... A $20 lav mic from the shack.....a little solder....and even at 80mph..... You can talk.... A fine fix to the terrible contour mic issues......

From Russia with love…again.

Why stay home on your comfy couch when you can sprint accross the border for 3 a day ride around a lake..?
Mostly in rain. With not so waterproof gear.

A 1500km shakedown ride around Lake Ladoga (RUS) squeezed into a 25min "RR" video.

DISCLAIMER: Bomber generation? Move along. Nothing to see here.
Does not include wheelies nor burn outs.
Mostly just russian road rage, "modern" architecture and tons of rain.

Grab a beer and have a russian experience.



Ride safe!

Miikka - awesome footage of that narrow, slippery bridge (about 6:00 in). That took guts!

Thanks for your comments fellas!

I told my wife crossing that bridge was a well calculated risk.

If that bridge was in my backyard it would be a walk in the park.
When it's on the other side of the border in BFE (well, not quite) it does raise few IF's inside my helmet.

But that's what this game is all about!?

-m

ps. Made a mental note: set aside your phone + spot on dry ground when doing the next crossing..
(my riding buddy's phone was dead by that point. Rallye Pro's waterproof pocket...not so waterproof!)

Sh!t happens


(keep sound speakers low, I use the horn 3 times and it is loud)





I write (in Greek) that since the bike is heavy I decide to wait for my friends to come from the top and assist... or start taking pics and making fun of me

Testing my GOPRO HD helmet mount for the first time. The angle of the camera is a bit to low, sorry about that.
