    I am having problems uploading photos for now, but check out my gallery for a bunch of BBQ photos. I will upload some as soon as the problem gets worked out.

    I had a great time. Lots of great roads around to ride and beautiful scenery. Thanks to Reggie and his wife for their hospitality. The BBQ was a great success.

    Yeah I learned quick to say goodbye to Reg when we take off.... I keep telling him to slow down but who am I to talk anyways. What kind of cam is that? Does it have a special 16:9 mode? Looks good! It looks like you needed Moses back there to part the sea!!

    Dudes, doesn't Reg rides these roads like more than once, while it's your first time? I would suggest that it would be harder to expect to ride as fast on any track the first time you go compared to folks that ride it everyday and know the brake points, what's around the corner, over the hill etc.

    Not riding above your head is hard with a group that is much faster... I know this as i'm not a racer. But as I get older, it takes longer to heal.

    either way track school should be in my plans, but I'm not big on planning like I should be.... nice video SS.8K

    SLOVFR: Yes the camera does have a special 16:9 mode. When you play it back on a HD Tv it actually fills the screen and looks amazing.

    Nozzle: Yes its true that it was my first time on the road but its not like the road was completely unpredictable. I could see most of the turns but ended up slowing way too much before entering. I just need practice and a lot more BBQ's!! :biggrin:

    Nice video Bri guy! Hey, where do you mount your mic anyways? Sounds like you have a pretty good location out of the wind noise but still catching the engine noise.

    Thanks for the video buddy!

    good video, brian. too bad it shuts off right before the curves but it kind of lets everyone feel like they get to start out with us, then they can watch Tori's video going through the group and riding the curves...

    Well you guys took off, Michael and I got caught behind traffic in most of the curves. Il post up something if I think its worth while like this vid. I call it passing 101 with a VFR and Can you see Eddie going the wrong way ... look near the end of the clip...

    Jason I got the mic under my seat cowl for now but will put it under the seat when I get the foam that was missing for it, should make it sound better I hope, kind of scratchy. Yeah Tori I think the first vid took about an hour :). Not sure I walked away from it. I cant find my good editing program I used before sor its only mpg1 :( but you get the point I guess ...... I try to work on some more...

    PS Who has pics of my lay down and aftermath ? I know Tony did but he is computer file sending challenged and I will have to go get them :)

    Sorry no pictures of it still in the sand pit. You know the whole leaky fuel with the ignited still on thing.

    Was very impressive.
