Jolly good show!

It's a good idea to film yesself riding, so when you're old and f..... you can sort of go back in time.

Nice video. I noticed that you turned both petcocks on. I only ever use one, I alternate between them, but just one on at a time. Hmmm.

I always use just one, though I've heard that if you're running hard for more than just a short blast, you'll run it lean that way.

Nice video.

My wife has been making a lot of pickles lately, as we're having good success with the cukes in our garden this year. So for about a month now, we usually have a jar of pickles on the table at mealtimes. It's become a running joke between me and my 8 YO daughter, that she always asks me if I'd like a pickle, to which I reply "No, I just....." I love that song!

Nice bike. Nice song. Love the dog - have one of those, too :-)

Only problem - your bike is TOO CLEAN!

Cool vid. I open both petcocks as well. Sometimes open to reserve just to keep it clear. My reserve tubes were clogged as I found out a week or 2 after buying it. Stranded with no gas station around.

Brings back the good ole days, when I was about that age, and a BMW was but a pipe dream, and when "don't wanna pickle" was a NEW song!! Good on ya, made me SMILE, big time!!

A classic bike and a classic song, plus a retriever - very nice! You really managed to capture the essence of what riding is all about.

Must say - I'm impressed by your "steady cam" boom operation via your left arm!

Nice one!
