Default Video from my last big group ride of the season.

Finally got around to putting this together. We had about 18 people show up. You could say the 2 guys in front of me have little to no regard for their safety.

Nice vid bro. That road looked pretty beat up to be doing some serious railing IMO. Glad all went well.

That is one scenic route!

Nice vid!

I remember when I was driving through Idaho when I was moving to Seattle thinking about how awesome those roads would be on a bike.

Thanks! I guess we're just used to the roads. Although there is a section of that loop that should have fresh pavement next year.

Try apexing later. I think you'll find it opens up the corners for you a lot more and allows you to make considerably less mid corner steering inputs (which are bad)

Very scenic though.

Fucking guard rails look pretty solid. I don't miss street riding one bit.

Nice video man! Thanks for posting.

I love the music too, especially how it speeds up when you do in the beginning of the video.

We're you on a ninja 636?

I was wondering that too. You can kinda see it at the 1:54 mark on the video. You can see the rpm counter moving.

I love those. Their one of my favorites!

If you don't mind me asking, is it a good all around bike? It makes around 120 hp doesn't it?

Is it pretty comfortable?

Do you think it would be an ok second bike?

Oh I love it, @ 5'10" I think it fits me perfect.

As far as comfort I wouldn't rate it very high. I've ridden a 2012 GSXR 1000, a 2008 R6, a 2006 R6s and my 636 was the least comfortable of any of them. Mainly because it feels like the reach to the bars is farther. It also has a higher seat than any of those bikes.

But when it comes to twisties, which is what I bought it for I wouldn't want anything else.
