For all of our 11 brothers and sisters who might be putting down the kick stands for the last time...I think I might be there with you but I will try one more time..dropping your bike like I have four times in my garageBut I still enjoy the sport and friends of motorcycles be they an 11 nut or other brands,no matter.I am glam-camping now in my van 3-4 nights a week.

I have seen a few bikes that look like they are on the road ,full dressers and the riders are clad in leather,smart.Those of you who are planning trips,dress warm and have very good rain gear...experience talking

I know why you like that! 3:09 in...... Great work, and the guy is using a trolly for some of the shots, but they are ALL shot as timelapse (sp), and put together on the computer.

Yea. Did some of that stuff back in Junior College. Never had all that hardware though.

The "how did you hold it that still" came from a kid on a field trip from a grade school. Surprised he was even thinking about the mechanics.

You guys in CA are used to the ground shaking
While I seek out the tracks to camp by there are those who hate trains

My bedroom was about 100 feet from a SP spur line to the General Mills plant in Lodi. At least 2 a day. 0500 every day.

Never heard the train.

I don't know if a moderator will delete this which is fine because it does have a few non radio words.

Ever find yourself rolling down your favorite back road or a new one and crack a little smile,we all do it so don't be shy.While I am not able to ride my bike I get the same feeling in my van,not that I am out there,this is life,the wind,rain,the sun,the moon but as close as I will be.So enjoy riding as long as you can and if I see you broken down beside the road I will be there.

If I was able to get this from a local source we can relate to this.

Howdy again from Cincinnati..I was going thru a few You Tube videos about riding in the rain.Well I will just say from my experience that it is not bad if it is not that tornado type rain or very very windy rain.One is I always have good tires..you choose what ya like,I have what I like.Two Have good rain gear,being cold and wet..not good.Three,don't be afraid of a wet road but do be afraid of painted lines,crossings and stop white bars,sewer lids and construction metal plates on the road.Oh yeah idiot cagers who slow way down..just pass them and get on with it..Don't be afraid of curves you are not gonna slide ..

I left Ogden UT in the rain and when I got to IL it was still raining so I am just cruising along and a gust a wind came and blew from the right of the oil slick to the left lane almost to the median.I said sucks,well close to what I thought and went to the nearest motel. Know when to quit.

Advise is to just ride in the rain and get a little experience and you will be fine.
Take what I said with a grain of salt,I am just a rider.
