unexpectedly warm day in February - even for Georgia!
« on: February 08, 2019, 07:53:58 AM »

Almost 80 here yesterday. Unbelievable! Took the opportunity to experiment with recording the ride. Results were meh, clearly need better mount options. Chin mount on the way.

almost 38 miles squished to less than 3 minutes (ensure viewing in 1080p or it will look like crap):

+1, I too got out on the RS and took the Cahaba River Drive 25 miles over to West Blockton for a hamburger and fries and then back home to change out the transmission and rear end fluids as I did the oil last week for the 60k service.
