    knybanjo, sounded like you were polishing some rust off your footpegs in that video. That is one of my favorites to get onto the parkway. I like to go north on the parkway and pick up 226 in little switserland and drop back down grab 221-A back up again. heck of a loop with all the twisties you will want for a good day ride. I also noticed you were trying to stay ahead of an fz-1 too. that is a tall order in itself. as you know I got one and It is the best bike I have ever owned, and I have had a bunch in my 50 years of riding.here is my baby.[​IMG]

    looks to me like you were holding your own. what kind of camera and how,where did you have it mounted? those were some of the best vidoes I have seen shot in a while. would like to hook up and ride some time. I ride almost every weekend somewhere, most week days too.

    Looks like a beautiful weekend for riding. I'm fighting a really bad cold or I would have already grabbed the tag. I hope you guys get out and enjoy the great weather this weekend and think of me cooped up indoors feeling like crap. :cry

    Thanks...it was just a plain old digital point and shoot set on video mode. A small piece of pvc was zip tied to the crash bar and the camera was just on a min-pod that had a leg dropped into the pvc and held in with a bungie. I tried several positions including handlebars and looking rearward from the trunk.....have not videoed in a long time and don't think I've ever tried it from the Strom......

    It'd be great to meet you and ride sometime, I'm currently working weekends and off Tue-Wed. :wave

    I'm very disappointed no one grabbed this today. It was hard not to jump on a bike and head that way but I had to take it easy today. I hate being sick. :cry

    If one of you hillbillys don't git this thang soon you'll have to have studded knobbys to get to it. It's up over 4000 ft and there is a storm brewing for de first of de week. Might have to send one of the foothill boyz up to grab it for it's too late.

    I'm feeling better but have church and other obligations today. I'll grab this tomorrow if it is still there. My laptop is down so i'll have to get creative on posting it. Don't have one them thar smarty phones and I can't figure out just how to get the picture to go up from my phone to the interweb. I took a picture of my phone below in case one of you tech wiz kids could help.

    Looks like you dropped the tag picture when you added the close up.

    Found it though. Street View will get you there, but you won't find the sign on it, only the surrounding buildings. Looks like we're still in hillbilly striking distance.
