Exclamation Riding Video I Put Together

This footage is from this season on a local back road and some on/off ramps with a friend.

I need to get some leathers and a GoPro because this camera isn't cutting it anymore.

Feel free to critique, comment, share, hate, or whatever

Cool vid! Seeing a vid of people riding on/off ramps makes me appreciate where I live.

Your buddy on the 250 is using way to much body english though.

yea you lucky guys down in the states don't know how lucky you are. We have some local twisties but they aren't as good as the ones you've got and they get boring after you've done them the millionth time.

Need to scope out some more this season.

PS: I don't do ramps often. This is my first season of doing them and out of total I did them about 5 times this season

Careful with the white lines dudes, that pavement is usually more slippery. I know what you mean about lack of twisties. I grew up in Calgary, Alberta and the only 5 turns we called twisties were an hour away.

O.O @ lack of fun roads in Canada.

I will never complain about having to ride an hr or 2 for decently twisty roads again.

Never stop learning.

Don't have much for twisties around here, but god damn you gotta be desperate to hit the on ramps! Even if I had some twisty roads, I'd be too worried about winter salt leftovers, gravel, and the plethora of small animals here in Wisconsin to really hit them.

Trust me you guys in the states can't complain at all. I contemplate moving down south to some wehere like california because of bullshit laws and roads here. Don't even get me started on the weather.

Lol yeah. It's his first bike and first season riding. He's too tall for the 250 but I still made him start on one.

I'm down for California. Having to put my bike up for 5 months or so in winter sucks.

Kinda made me chuckle when the lead guy stuck his foot out like they do in Moto GP going into a turn.

I think he was actually pointing out something on the road with his foot, I could be mistaken. It looked like there was a big crack in the road where he stuck out his foot, or he could be trying to be Rossi who knows.

Where is your camera mounted? I just got a Sony Action Cam and have it mounted on top of my helmet. It's nice, but you never see my bike in the picture unless I look down. I like being able to see bits of the bike, as it makes you feel like you're there rather than just seeing the road in front of you does.

In the beginning of the video it is duct taped on the mirror facing towards me. For the ramp footage I used my backpack and duct taped it near about arm put height on the strap. I have it down to a science

Oh, ok. I actually just watched it again and saw in your mirror where it was located. That looks like a pretty good spot for it.

BTW, duct tape FTW!

Yeah you can see it in there. It makes switching from rider to rider easy as well since it's pretty much a backpack.
