Took this vid a while back, The mountains on the western side of the bay area make for some amazing riding. Scenery is great too!

Nice, Bob! Thanks for the video. Hwy 9 and the 35 are great rides. I live in the East Bay, so a little harder to get down there without some freeway time. I hit Briones/Bear Creek Rd. and Redwood Rd above Castro Valley out here.

It helps that slower drivers pull over to the side, there's a growing amount of people that just don't and are clueless as to why they should.

Back on the 650...did it feel nimble enough going in and out of those turns?

Feels great in the corners, Always feels nice and planted


Nice video! 9 and 35 are my go-to on weekends. What's your video and audio set up? Gopro session on chin mount?
Just a top mounted hero 5 using the built in mic. I have a tascam dr-22wl recorder that i want to try for audio though.

Looks pretty darn sweet, but it's always the sound with the GoPros as they heavily take on wind noise. Have you thought of those dead rabbit things or whatever they call them or are you just going straight with the adapter and external mic?

A deadcat! He has his camera mounted on top of this helmet, that's why you hear so much wind. It would need an external mic relocated inside the helmet, with the windscreen. Even then, I still get some wind noise with all of the vents open.

Those roads do look fun though!
