That's because he is afraid to get bugs on the paint.

If you completed the 1,500 mile ride in 36 hours, the IBA has Bun Burner awards for that...

Of course, there is a whole routine involving receipts and such to qualify.

That being said, I would HOPE that you rode at a more 'leisurely' pace and enjoyed the ride more.

I'm getting a little better with IMovie, but I'm still an amateur. Enjoy  :chugbeer:

Thanks,

Ya, all the shots are from the top of helmet. If you look at the shadows you can see the camera.

Since I did not get my ballast yet, and my bike is still in :censored: pieces, I had plenty of time to edit videos today.  :-\

If anybody knows how to prevent the lines at the beginning PM me. I tried six different ways to upload it today and I got lines on all of them.  :truce:

Very nice Gumby!!  :thumbs: :thumbs:

I liked the mixed soundtrack and even the Dukes of Hazard guy at the end!  :)

But I especially liked how it started out, and for those of you that don't know, that pic was from about somewhere in the late 80's early 90's would be my guess...

My red 87 Gixxer and Gumby's 87 red/wht/blk Gixxer, along with two of our other bro's on FZR and ZX7...
Good times indeed for a couple late teens looking for trouble!  8) :chugbeer:
