Nice video. The scenery was very nice but I was leaning with you and you need to learn to ignore those advisory posts and let your bike go closer to its limits. IMO that Vegas has plenty of added speed available with no threat. I had to learn to tell myself to trust the bike to even come close to real limits on my Vision. Yellow signs with wavy lines are not speed limits, they are suggestions.
Thanks for the pep talk coach, maybe I should've kept my GPZ900r and posted a hero video like one of yours, please direct me to your vids???
As Kris pointed out I had a female pillion on back (who trusts me implicitly I might add)...I'm riding a cruiser and I'm cruising, cruising back after a protest run where we actually did break the new laws by riding in a pack, and once the police escort pissed off we 'may' have actually exceeded the speed limit a little, but 'if' we did I'd be foolish to post that info on a public forum...OR upload footage of it.
1947 hey...ten years older than me....Im sure you didnt get that old by riding foolishly and purposely blitzing the speed limits so you could show off on camera.....if so where are the vids?
I've been riding since I was 15 ,which makes 42 years riding, and Ive come down a few times too, Ive gone into corners too fast and ended up under an armco fence, and it hurt, and I got the bike out and rode it 60 miles home before passing out in the front yard.
Oldman47...I know how to ride, and after almost 13,000 kilometers in 13 weeks on my Victory Im learning how it behaves over bumps, I assure you I found its limits the day after I bought it on the 2000 k trip home, and it has many limits compared with my Kwaka GPZ900r which I sold to buy the Vic, My GPZ was taken to its limits many times for extended periods of time on gunbarrel outback roads.
I bought the Vic cos she's a cruiser...a cruiser with balls yes...and on the right road...in the right circumstances I use those balls.
But I'd be silly to upload video evidence to a public site, have my bike confiscated and crushed under the new 'hoon' laws wouldnt I ?
FYI the yellow signs with 'wavy' lines are arrows indicating a corner, no doubt to inform numbskull car drivers and stoned hippies(its the road from Uki to Nimbin) that its a corner and to turn the steering wheel.
Advisory speed signs..and there are some if you stop leaning with me and look have a number on them..in KPH...I tend to take that number as MPH plus a bit when 'cruising steady' so 45k I may take at 50mph, depending on road surface, weather, instinct, how Im feeling at the time, and who is on the back.
The blanket limit for that stretch of road is 80 ks = 50mph
oh and the road is still damp in places from the rain we had on and off all day.
Sorry I'm not up to your standards Old man....you'll find lots of more thrilling vids on youtube if you look I'm sure
Have a Nice Day
