Default My Hornet hits the twisties for a bit

This was yesterday here in CA, on the road to Mount Diablo, San Francisco East Bay Area.

Nothing fancy, but it was fun for a 35min riding during lunch break. :-) Got my fix that way and I seem work better afterwards. Better than coffee!

Sound is crappy as hell, I thought about putting music on top of it, but got lazy.

Plan is to use my Tascam guitar recorder and an external mic and then sync it with the video. At least the Tascam has gain control, GoPro's auto gain is a piece of crap.

Hope you enjoy a bit.

Okay this is one made today has a better sound:

Nothing fancy, apart from the jerky throttle response, and my dumb mistakes when down shifting - that's the chirping sound you hear about 3 times, twice going downhill. I'm using just first and 2nd, occasionally 3rd, but just for the kicks, not really needed.

It's 15min up until the paying post (I don't want to fork the $10.00 for this quick fix) than 15min down. Feels good. :thumbup

Nice rides!

I used to ride all over the mountains east of San Diego, and I considered getting a GoPro or the like to film it, but I was never very happy with the cost-benefit ratio. I have my memories though! There were so many lovely roads there,
