Once the video is playing in YT, click "share",then "embed", then check the box "use old embed code". Copy that whole script.

Paste in the post you want it to be in..and, voila!

The true GL1800RR?




Cedric Smith of Everett Powersports, in Everett, Washington built this motorcycle. It's a stock 2004 GL1800 frame and rear swing arm. Rear wheel has been widened from 5" to 6" the diameter enlarged to 16". The front end is a Suzuki GSXR750 with a CRB1000RR front fairing/gauge cluster. The tank, fairings, and rear tail cowl are all also CBR1000RR. It's a 6into2into1 undertail exhaust. The bike weighs just under 500lbs with 100hp and 100 ft-lbs of torque. Complete with a hand built wiring harness and fuel rail. It's nuts. It sounds like a GL1800, but it moves like nothing you've seen.


BTW, sweet video. You can sure ride that GL1800!

Camera. Check!
Sweet sounding VFR. Check!
Gorgeous day with completely empty and incredible mountain roads..... Check!!

I don't think, in my entire life, I have ever headed out for a ride and been on a road that deserted. I nearly had a orgasm half way through that video thinking about going for a Saturday morning ride and being able to be completely alone with my thoughts and the drone of the bike.
Then I started thinking about snow, and not being able to lane split, and that my wife hates bugs......then I realized why I live in California....



people suck and crowds suck but so does leaving your bikes in doors for several months of the year. But still... what a road.

I have no-traffic runs up the 89A all the time. One of the few good things about working every weekend. I gotta get me one of them go-pro things.

That was a joy to watch. Thank you.
All the other videos of you I've seen were from a chase bike, and contained a lot of footage of you clearing off into the distance...
Would you like to comment on what gear(s) you were in in the slow section, and in the fast section? I'm just curious...
VERY nice riding, sir.

Nice ride! 215 is one of my favorite roads. I'll be headed up that way in about a week.

You can tell you were going pretty slow there. All the really fast riders cross the yellow lines.
Nice riding, maybe my next bike will be a Goldwing.
