I should have, but the sound is really bad straight from the gopro, I'm looking to buy and external mic soon.

Good stuff. Where's that at? I hit GMR as often as I can, which isn't often

nice set up with the cams facing each other.

If I was going to offer some constructive criticism though, I'd say you should adjust your lane position on the left hand corners - on almost all of the left handers, your body was actually on the wrong side of the road, even though the bike itself wasn't - which is gonna cause you some issues on blind corners and when there is traffic coming the other way, - it will force you to make several adjustments rather than flowing through the curve in one consistent smooth motion.
not trying to get up your a$$ or anything, just offer some advice to a fellow R1 lover!!

Looks like some nice sections of road though man!

Thanks, I don't mind criticism at all... I don't consider myself very experience when it comes to this stuff, and have much to learn. Ill keep that in mind...

Is that at the bottom? I've only been to that side once and don't remember a tunnel. I stay away from GRR since it's only one lane and too many cagers doing time attack runs there

Yeah it's at the bottom, the tunnels are the only reason I went there, ads to the video...
