Don't have an external mic. Just the waterproof casing. If I was using the non waterproof. Would've been more annoying the wind noise.

That's a good suggestion though. I'll have to read about it more

looks like a blast... love how it effortlessly caught up in the turns. 300 ftw!
yeah 300 would be ample IMO, what I noticed is that I have to accelerate harder and brake/trail brake at a few corners just to match up with the s1000r - he's braking 1-2sec before a turn and mine would be more than 2secs then I have to lean bike more(racing line it) unlike his.

but 300cc should suffice! thinking its an uphill ride too.

would be best if i was following a fellow ninja 300 rider since our braking would be exactly similar.


@popcorn comments -- sounded like that on low res vids. hahaha!! sorry guys about the wind noise. @GaBoy its the near misses that we remember most of the time.

this was filmed with a gopro 3black on a widescreen 1080p 50fps. objects in front appear farther than actually is.

That comes as a surprise, I know the 1000 should have no trouble pulling away in the straights but I would have thought the 300 would waste it in the twists (as the video seemed to support)

A quote from Lewis Hamilton I heard from graham norton show lolz! What a reference!! "It's kinda 70-30 driver - machine" something like that. It's always the pilot at the end of the day.

But our 300 is really awesome, for my abilities... For now. :)

Heres to looking towards you improving to greater levels and helping to outshine the larger displacement bikers who don't see the beauty in the smaller end of things

Fun video, thanks for sharing! What kind of jackets are your buddies wearing? That's my next piece of gear to buy and I'm having trouble deciding, but I like the looks of those. Also being from the US it's a little unnerving watching you guys drive on the left side of the road. :eek:
