Riding through Rural Georgia

Some friends and I decided to go for a ride. We thought about hitting Suches up but with all the gravel and GBI roming around we decided to hit some easier roads. Plus we has some newbies with us and didn't want to take them to the mountains.

So we rode around the Rural areas about 50miles east of Atlanta. And since we weren't going fast I decided to tape my camera to my helmet for pictures and some vids.
Here is the video...


1st 3 clips are of me. After that it gets even more boring but I figured it was kind of neat to have a motorcycle video that didn't consist of the twisties. And to see what people see when they ride around their area. Though I will have some twisty vids later this year(Once I get a helmet and tank cam)

and pics

I wanted to edit the video better to get rid of the looking back and forth. But everyone wanted to see the vid so I slapped it together real quick. Which I've never been a big fan of Helmet Cams. I just taped my camera to my mouth guard. I would do a tank cam but my windscreen was rattle canned black and I haven't replaced it yet. The best is if you have someone riding on the back of the bike who can hold a camera when doing scenic vids.

Plus we had some newbies in the group and I stayed in the back to watch over everyone else. This was the guy's on the Ninja 250's first group ride and probably 3rd time on public roads. So he wasn't digging going over 50-55mph much. Which when I did that quick little run I felt like I was flying becuase for about an hour or two I was doing 45-55mph on long straight roads. When I got to 100 I was like damn. I've been faster but I felt like I was running 300mph.

I wish I got one incident on camera. My group is fairly new with me being one of your more experienced riders(With me having about 6months under my belt) but I've done group rides before and learned from those people. But we took a left on a two lane country road that is well traveled. INfact people probably average 70mph+ on it in cars. My buddy was doing 55(Which was hte speed limit) on the 250 and the group was seperated. I got stuck behind the SUV and was going to wait for it to open up and let the SUV pass. They didn't and stayed on my buddies ass. I literally couldn't fit my bike between their front bumper and the back of my buddy's bike.

I finally got pissed off and pulled up next to them and started yelling and throwing my head in a "Get Back" motion. I also had my SS 44magnum revolver strapped to my side. They got off real quick and then stayed atleast 25yards back.

But for my next "Scenic" vid I want to do something like this...
