Funny C-14 Video From Sunday
« on: September 12, 2011, 12:34:37 pm »
So the wife didn't want to ride her bike on Sunday and we jump on the C-14.
After about 150 miles of riding, we caught these two Moto GP Road Racers...

Remember, I am on a Concours 14 riding two up. These guy are on CBR's.

I give them huge props, since neither of them crashed. Nor were they holding up traffic like the average HD owner.

The road is the Cherohala Skyway.

I mount the cameras; one under the left mirror. Which makes the bike look like you are hugging the yellow line and that is taboo here.

The rear is on the left side case.
I use the ContourHD.

As I said in the post above...
The downside to where the camera is mounted is it makes it look like you are on the line when you are in the middle of the road.

Yes. I did pass them. You can see far enough ahead where I passed them.
You can see the road on the hill leading up to the pass. From the over look you can see a good half mile.
Part of riding the mountains is being able to read the road before you get there.
I ride the Cherohala more in a week than most on this forum will ride it all year.

But you are free to voice your opinion this is the internet and that is what people do best.

Wish you had not implied that this video was funny. If you are willing to ride more over the speed limit than they are does not necessarily mean you would beat them on a track.  Oh well riding bikes is fun.

That sure looks like a nice road to ride.
Hope you stay safe.

I loved the Cherohala, I was fortunate enough to see very little traffic while I was on it.  Riding it on a Thursday morning was an awesome experience.  Thanks for posting since I haven't invested in a GoPro or Contour yet.

That is funny.
They are off of the seat without any lean angle. One guy almost got his knee down the bike was just about straight up.

With all the bikes I have in my garage, the last bike I would take to the track would be a C-14.
